How  to  AAake  Up  /our  Lips  to  Last

New  8-hour  lip  coloring  discov- 
ered in  Paris  by  Edna  Wallace 
Hopper.  Formulated  on  entirely 
new  principle.  Waterproof .... 
Wearproof .  .  .  .  Indelible  .... 
Ends  constant     malcing-up.' 


Edna  Wallace  Hopper,  famous  stage 
beauty,  discovered  it  in  Pans.  A  lip 
color  that  banishes  all  the  smearing  and 
fleeting  life  of  present  ways  in  make-up. 
An  utterly  new  kind  of  lipstick. 

She  sent  it  to  Hollywood,  and  it  swept 
through  the  studios  like  a  storm.  Old-time 
lipsticks  were  discarded  overnight. 

Now — Kissproof,  the  world's  largest 
makers  of  lipsticks,  has  obtained  the  for- 
mula from  Miss  Hopper,  and  offers  its 
amazing  results  to  you.  A  totally  New 
type,  different  from  any  other  you  have 
ever  tried  .  .  .  Kissproof  or  any  other  kind. 

You  put  it  on  before  you  go  out.  Then 
forget  about  it.  Six  hours,  eight  hours  later 
your  lips  are  still  naturally  lovely! 


No  more  constant  making-up.  No  more 
fuss  and  bother.  Do  you  wonder  that 
women  are  flocking  to  its  use? 

Utterly  NEW  Principle 

It  is  different  in  formula  and  result  from 
any  previously  known  lipstick.  It  does 
what  no  other  lipstick  does  or  has  ever 
done  .  .  .  actually  seems  to  last  indefinitely. 

That's  because  the  color  pigment  it  em- 
bodies has  never  before  been  used  in  a  lip- 
stick. It  holds  where  others  smear. 

Then,  too,  it  is  a  true,  Natural  color. 
Thus  it  ends  that  artificial  smirk  women 
have  tried  for  years  to  overcome.  A  color 
that  glorifies  the  lips  to  pulse-quickening 
loveliness — trust  the  French  for  that!

What  to  Ask  For 

To  obtain,  ask  for  the  New  Kissproof 
Indelible  Lipstick  (or  Lip  and  Cheek 
Rouge).  And — remember  it  is  Not  the 
"same"  as  any  other  lipstick  known.  Don't 
believe  that  ;ust  because  you  have  tried 
Kissproof  before — that  you  have  tried  this 
one.  You  haven't;  this  is  Entirely  New. 
Edna  Wallace  Hopper  paid  $2.50  for  the 
original  in  Paris.  Owing  to  tremendous 
demand  the  price  is  much  less  in  this 
country.  Two  forms  at  all  toilet  counters 
—  lipstick  —  lip  and  cheek  rouge.  Re- 
member— Kissproof  gives  you  imported 
lipstick  quality  without  imported  prices. 
Money  cannot  buy  a  finer  lipstick.

YOU  and  I  consider  ourselves 
educated  moviegoers.  We  know 
what  we  like  and  what  we  don't  like, 
and  we  aren't  afraid  to  say  so.  We 
laugh,  for  instance,  at  the  blood-and- 
thunder  serials  that  used  to  thrill  us 
when  we  were  in  the  fifth  grade — and 
then  we  knock  each  other  down,  try- 
ing to  be  the  first  to  see  the  newest 
horror  specials  (such  as  "Franken- 
stein" and  "Murders  in  the  Rue 
Morgue"),  which  are  just  great  big 
brothers  to  the  old-time  serials! 

AND  speaking  of  screen  chillers, 
L  if  you  don't  get  a  shudder  or 
two  or  three  out  of  "Freaks,"  you're 
a  stronger  man  than  I  am,  Gunga 
Din.  So  far  as  I'm  concerned,  this  is 
the  horror  picture  to  end  all  horror 
pictures.     I'm  swearing  ofF! 

/CONGRATULATIONS  are  in 
V_>  order  for  Columbia — the  first 
studio  to  look  upon  this  matter  of 
stars  in  a  sane  manner.  Columbia's 
idea  is  to  have  the  stars  glorify  the 
pictures,  rather  than  to  have  the  pic- 
tures inflate  the  stars.  And  how  will 
they  accomplish  this?  First  of  all, 
they  will  stop  giving  long-term  con- 
tracts— which  often  convince  good- 
looking  youngsters  that  they  have 
talent,  when  all  they  have,  to  be 
frank,  is  looks. 

Columbia  will  no  longer  get  stories 
to  fit  certain  stars,  but  get  players  to 
tit  their  stories.  They  will  engage 
them  only  for  the  duration  of  the 
picture.  But  how  will  the  poor  play- 
ers manage  to  afford  ermine  coats  and 
swanky  limousines  under  this  system? 
The  principal  players  will  receive  not 
only  salaries  while  acting,  but  also 
revalues  from  the  box-office  returns 
on  the  picture — the  theory  being  that, 
the  better  their  acting,  the  more 
money  the  picture  will  make.  It 
sounds  logical,  and  I'm  anxious  to  see 
the  idea  in  action.  How  about  your- 
self? 


c 


ONGRATULATIONS  are  also 
in  order  for  Metro-Goldwyn- 
Mayer,  the  first  studio  to  have  the 
courage  to  present  a  picture  featuring 
a  genuine  all-star  cast.  Those  words, 
"all-star  cast,"  have  long  been  over- 
worked, until  they  mean  almost  noth- 
ing. But  in  "Grand  Hotel,"  you  will 
see  Garbo  (who  discards  the  Greta, 
by  the  way,  with  this  picture),  John 
and  Lionel  Barrymore,  Joan  Craw- 
ford, Wallace  Beery  and  Jean  Her- 
sholt — the  greatest  cast  ever  assem- 
bled in  one  film.  It  took  nerve  to  try 
the  experiment.  For,  afterward,  will 
you  and  I  be  content  to  see  pictures 
that    boast   only   one   or   two   stars? 


But  maybe  the  producers  won't  be 
stingy.  Remember  that  M-G-M  not 
many  months  ago  tried  the  experi- 
ment of  co-starring  several  of  their 
big  names — and  now  all  the  studios 
are  doing  it. 

WHEN  Charlie  Chaplin  finished 
"City  Lights,"  he  closed  down 
his  studio,  keeping  only  a  few  (three 
or  four)  employees  at  work.  Harold 
Lloyd  has  not  made  a  picture  in 
months,  yet  his  large  staff  of  studio 
workers  are  still  on  the  payroll,  not 
looking  for  jobs.     He's  a  real  sport! 

DO  producers  really  rate  the  in- 
telligence of  moviegoers  like 
this?  The  title  of  "The  Man  I 
Killed"  was  changed  to  "Broken 
Lullaby,"  lest  you  should  think  it 
was  another  gangster  opus.  The  title 
of  "The  Honorable  Mr.  Wong"  was 
changed  to  "The  Hatchet  Man," 
lest  the  "honorable"  should  make 
you  think  Somebody  approved  of 
Edward  G.  Robinson's  hatchet-shng- 
ing.  The  title  of  "Old  Man  Minick" 
was  changed  to  "The  Expert,"  lest 
you  should  not  remember  that  Chic 
Sale  once  wrote  a  best-seller  called 
"The  Specialist" — even  though  Edna 
Ferber's  story  was  hardly  based  on 
that. 

/CLIVE  BROOK  says,  rightly,  that 
V_>  producers  don't  profit  by  their 
mistakes.  As  soon  as  a  picture  is  fin- 
ished, thev  forget  about  it — except 
to  note  whether  or  not  it  is  making 
money.  They  don't  try  to  discover 
why  it  is  or  isn't.  But  Clive  studies 
the  reaction  to  his  pictures.  That's 
how  he  has  improved  himself.  If 
only  there  were  more  like  him! 

ACCORDING  to  Variety,  the  Bible 
L  of  show  business,  several  screen 
magazines  have  lately  been  cutting 
down  their  budgets  by  running  "in- 
terviews" written  by  the  stars'  press- 
agents.  Just  as  a  matter  of  record, 
I  want  to  state  that  Movie  Classic 
is  not  guilty — and  never  will  be.  I 
hope  you  will  take  note  of  the  number 
of  journalistic  "scoops"  in  this  issue 
— running  all  the  way  from  "Clara 
Bow's  First  Interview  Since  Her  Mar- 
riage" to  Louise  Rice's  analysis  of 
the  character  of  Clark  Gable  from  his 
handwriting,  the  first  of  a  brand-new 
series.

AT  A  NEW  LOW  PRICE 

WHY  risk  discomfort  for  the 
fifty  trying  days  of  the 
year?  The  easy  comfort  of  softly 
fluffed  Modess  makes  these  diffi- 
cult days  more  endurable — hap- 
pier. Its  safety  backing  saves 
you  from  fear  of  embarrassment. 

Johnson  &  Johnson  have  re- 
duced the  price  of  Modess.  It 
is  the  same  quality — nothing 
changed  but  the  price.  And  the 
price  is  most  decidedly  in  your 
favor. 

Try  Modess.  If  it  isn't  com- 
pletely satisfactory,  write  your 
name,  address,  and  the  price  paid, 
on  cover  of  box,  and  mail  to  us. 
We  will  refund  your  money.

The  $20.00  Letter 

Don't  Spoil  the  Beautiful 

Memories 

A  FEW  blasts  from  a  horn  may  make  all 
old  pictures  like  "Ben-Hur"  and  "The 
Birth  of  a  Nation"  Sound  Productions,  so 
far  as  the  distributor's  racket  is  concerned, 
but  to  this  Movie  Fan  they're  not  howling 
successes. 

Truly,  advance  publicity  promised  sound 
entertainment,  coaxing  the  unsuspecting 
screenward,  where  a  few  moments  of  the 
programme  fired  one  with  a  desire  for 
"Flit,"  so  that  a  person  could  put  an  end  to 
the  agony  of  these  human  flutter-jerking  in- 
sects, who  jumped  about  on  a  background  of 
passe,  antediluvian  photography. 

If  the  producers  have  neither  the  inclina- 
tion, strength  or  money  to  re-take  and  make 
talkies  of  these  famous  stories  of  yesterday, 
why  untomb  their  now-faded  glory  and  ruin 
the  beautiful  memory  of  Picture  World 
Masterpieces?  Jean  McMichael,

The  $10.00  Letter 

Give  "Younger  Generation" 
A  Break 

MOVING  PICTURE  producers  are 
firmly  convinced  that  high-school 
youth  is  speeding  down  the  primrose  path 
to  quick  disaster!  No?  Then  I  wish  some 
observing  company  would  produce  a  film 
depicting  the  much-maligned  "younger  gen- 
eration" in  a  mode  of  life  not  entirely  de- 
voted to  gin-swigging,  petting,  and  kindred 
pleasures. 

Perhaps  the  all-powerful  box-office  de- 
mands the  sensational  and  lurid,  but  I  can- 
not imagine  "Skippy"  as  an  incipient  Ca- 
pone,  nor  "Sooky"  as  a  future  anarchist;  yet 
strangely  enough,  these  two  pictures  seem  to 
have  attracted  unusual  patronage.  Is  it  too 
impossible,  then,  to  create  a  story  concern- 
ing the  adventures  of  seventeen-  and  eight- 
een-year-old adolescents,  and  have  them 
act  as  Skippy  or  Sooky  would  at  that  age? 

It  may  be  that  the  normal  teen  age  holds 
little  of  interest  for  a  blase  public,  but  is  the 
fault  with  us?  We  stand  on  the  threshold  of 
life,  and  our  problems  are  not  the  morbid 
affairs  certain  pictures  would  lead  us  to 
believe. 

We  in  high-school,  you  must  remember, 
are  trying  to  establish  our  identity  as  per- 
sons, and  we  would  appreciate  the  intelli- 
gent aid  the  cinema  could  render  us.

Movies  For  Taut  Nerves 

NEVER  have  the  movies  had  a  more 
salutary  effect  than  in  this  time  of  al- 
most universal  depression.  While  nerves  are 
taut  with  the  stress  of  ghastly  financial  af- 
fairs, there  is  nothing  like  the  splendid  dra- 
matic productions  to  alleviate  the  strain. 
And  as  if  the  powers  of  the  movie  world 
realized  this,  they  are  giving  us  such  singu- 
larly worthwhile  pictures  as  "Arrowsmith," 
"Mata  Hari,"  "Tomorrow  and  Tomorrow." 
Who  can  see  the  priceless  Marie  Dressier  in 
"Emma"  and  go  away  still  self -centered, 
calling  the  world  a  total  loss?  We  who  have 
suffered  and  been  crushed  by  new  and  unex- 
pected burdens  need  something  outside  of 
ourselves  to  grip  us  completely. 

The  movies  are  a  hypodermic,  bringing 
blessed  interludes  of  forgetfulness.  Yea, 
they  are  more  than  that — they  are  a  world 
tonic,  injecting  new  life  and  belief,  restoring 
mental  equilibrium,  bringing  broader  out- 
looks and  a  strange  comforting  peace.  ■'

A  More  Appropriate  Title 

AFTER  having  seen  the  great  Garbo  in 
.  "Susan  Lenox,"  I  came  to  the  conclu- 
sion that  the  author  gave  that  person,  in  the 
vernacular  of  the  street,  a  "dirty  deal." 

In  my  opinion,  a  title  more  appropriate 
than  the  present  one  would  be  "SHE  Who 
Gets  Slapped,"  for  slapped  she  was  from  the 
time  she  was  "slapped  into  the  world,"  as  it 
were,  by  the  doctor  who  presided  at  her 
birth,  down  through  her  pitiful  and  sordid 
existence,  right  to  the  last  chapter.

Comedies  Being  Neglected 

WHEN  will  the  producers  wake  up  and 
give    us    some    real    belly-rollicking 
comedies?     The    Talkies   have   swept    the 
directors  off  their  feet.    They  think  it  more 
important   to   have   voice   perfection   than 
accomplished      acting. 
For  a  change, we  movie 
fans  would    like  com- 
edies   that   would    roll 
us  off  our  seats. 

The  effectiveness  of 
modern  comedy  is  lost 
through  the  neglect 
of  pantomime.  Wise- 
cracking in  the  movies 
is  greatly  overdone.  It 
isn't  funny  to  sit  and 
listen  to  your  neigh- 
bor's laughter  at  a 
movie  when  the  voices 
on  the  screen  are  in- 
audible. Bob  Moore, 
Newberg,  Ore. 


Her  teeth  too  precious  to  risk 
with  any  tooth  paste  but  the  softest 

Baby  teeth  are  given  new  protection  by  a  new  discovery  .  .  .  a  cleansing 
material  has  been  developed  that's  twice  as  soft  as  those  in  common  use 


CHILDREN'S  teeth  are  softer  and 
more  porous  than  adults'!  Being 
softer,  they  are  more  easily  injured  by 
harsh  tooth  pastes. Those  designed  only 
for  older,  harderteeth  are  apt  to  be  much 
too  abrasive  for  tender,  soft  enamel. 

Recently  Pepsodent  laboratories  have 
developed  a  new  and  entirely  different 
cleansing  material.  Baby  teeth  brushed 
by  it  thousands  of  times  and  examined 
undera  powerful  microscope  fad  to  show 
the  faintest  scratch— only  a  soft,  lustrous 
glow  like  a  precious  jewel  with  film 
stains  completely  erased. 

The  adoption  of  this  new  discovery  in 
Pepsodent  affords  greater  protection  to 
children's  teeth  —  it  provides  an  abso- 
lutely safe  way  of  removing  film. 

Care  of  Baby  Teeth 
You  must  remove  film  from  children's 
teeth,  as  well  as  your  own,  tu  i«  e  e\  ery 

Amos   'if'  Andy  brought  to  you  hy  Pepsodent  eve 


day.  FILM  is  that  slippery  coating  on 
your  teeth.  It  gathers  germs  that  cause 
decay.  It  glues  them  tightly  to  enamel. 
FILM  absorbs  the  stains  from  foods  and 
makes  teeth  unattractive.  Removing 
FILM  is  vitally  important. 

Some  tooth  pastes  remove  film  but 
leave  microscopic  scratches.  Others  are 
sate  but  fail  to  remove  film  satisfacto- 
rily. But  Pepsodent — through  its  notable 
new  discover}  — combines  film-remov- 
ing power  with  super-safety. 

The  new  cleansing  and  polishing 
material  is  twice  as  soft  as  that  in  com- 
mon use.  It  brings  extra  safety  to  your 
children's  teeth  and  yours  .  .  .  Remem- 
ber, too,  this  new  material  stands  un- 
surpassed in  removing  stubborn  film. 
It  gives  more  brilliant  polish  to  enamel.

Little    Low-Downs    On    The    Stars 


By  J.   E. 


JOHN  BARRYMORE  beat  Walter  Win- 
I  chell  to  it  by  announcing  that  the  Barry- 
-^  more- Dolores  Costello"blessed  event"will 
take  place  in  May.  John  hopes  for  a  son. 
.  .  .  Ciarbo  wanted  a  psychic  to  tell  her 
about  the  Garbo  future,  but  when  the  sooth- 
sayer said  she'd  do  it,  if  they  had  press  pic- 
tures taken  together,  the  smart  Swede 
changed  her  mind.  .  .  .  Now  that  Miriam 
Hopkins  is  living  in  Garbo's  former  shelter 
(Greta  has  moved  up  the  street),  the  house 
is  seeing  some  parties — and  gay  ones,  at 
that.  .  .  .  Beginning  with  "Grand  Hotel," 
the  silent  Scandinavian  will  be  billed  as 
just  plain  Garbo. 


Peggy  von  Eltz,  former  actress-wife  of 
Theodore  von  Eltz,  actor,  has  just  married 
Joseph  Moncure  March,  writer.  Flaunting 
convention,  they  first  tried  a  "test  mar- 
riage"— for  Peggy  wanted  to  be  sure  this 
time.  .  .  .  M-G-M  didn't  care  for  the  first 
name  of  Nora  Gregor,  their  new  foreign  dis- 
covery, so  you'll  see  her  as  Eleonora  Gregor. 
.  .  .  Irving  Pichel  is  voice-training  RKO's 
new  "find,"  Gwili  Andre  (there's  a  name  for 
you!),  by  having  her  read  aloud  from  the 
Good  Book.  .  .  .  The  only  American  stars 
capable  of  making  French  versions  of  films 
are  Douglas  Fairbanks,  Jr.  and  Ruth  Chat- 
terton;  they're  about  to  do  one  together. 


Remember  Carman  Barnes,  the  girl- 
author  who  was  signed  for  stardom  by  Para- 
mount and  never  made  a  picture?  She's 
trying  to  content  herself  with  a  small  salary 
on  the  New  York  stage.  .  .  .  Linda  Watkins 
isn't  any  happier  to  be  newly  married  (to 
Gabriel  Hess,  New  York  lawyer),  than  she 
is  to  get  away  from  Hollywood,  which  Made 
Her  Unhappy.  .  .  .  One  of  the  few  bidders 
for  the  Navy's  older  airship,  the  Los 
Avgeles,  is  Howard  Hughes,  producer  of 
"Hell's  Angels,"  who  wants  it  for  a  picture. 
.  .  .  Pola  Negri,  who  really  isn't  well  enough 
yet  to  be  making  those  personal  appear- 
ances, told  Chicago  interviewers  that  she 
was  going  to  marry  a  Windy  City  lad — but 
wouldn't  tell  his  name.    Aw,  Pola!  .  .  . 


Mae  Marsh,  one  of  the  great  favorites  of 
silent  days,  who  made  a  comeback  in  "Over 
the  Hill,"  has  already  gone  back  to  the 
home-life  and  the  children.  .  .  .  Mary  Dun- 
can has  had  her  marriage  to  Lewis  Wood, 
Jr.,  quietly  annulled  already,  the  romance 
having  curdled  after  the  first  few  days. 
.  .  .  Harry  Langdon  is  all  set  for  a  come- 
back, making  his  own  comedies  in  the  East, 
far  from  the  Hollywood  that  took  him  for 
such  a  sleigh  ride.  ...  In  spite  of  the  "un- 
safe-for-white-women  "  bulletins  about  Ha- 
waii, Dolores  Del  Rio  and  company  are  mak- 
ing "Bird  of  Paradise"  there.  .  .  . 


Director  Ernst  Lubitsch  and  actress  Ona 
Munson  have  suffered  a  severe  chill  and 
called  off  those  nuptials.  .  .  .  When  Richard 
Dix  and  his  bride  recently  spent  a  three- 
week  delayed  honeymoon  in  New  York, 
Rich  didn't  tell  even  his  press-agent  where 
they  were  staying.  .  .  .  When  Nancy  Carroll 
recently  canceled  a  personal  appearance 
engagement  at  the  New  York  Paramount, 
stork  rumors  flew  about.  She  and  husband 
Bolton  Mallory  have  just  been  taking  a  de- 
layed honeymoon,  themselves,  in  the  Ba- 
hamas. .  .  .  Universal,  sponsor  of  three  hor- 
ror hits  ("Dracula,"  "Frankenstein"  and 
"Murders  in  the  Rue  Morgue")  has  three 
more  on  tap — "The  Old  Dark  House"  and 
"The  Invisible  Man"  (both  starring  Boris 
Karloff)  and  "The  Suicide  Club"  by  Robert 
Louis  Stevenson.  .  .  . 


Marlene  Dietrich — and  this  is  good 
news — has  one  more  picture  to  go  on  her 
present  contract,  but  has  already  signed  to 
do  three  more.  .  .  .  Lita  Grey  Chaplin  pains 
reporters  by  refusing  to  be  interviewed  ex- 
cept when  stepping  on  or  off  choo-choos. 
.  .  .  William  Fox,  no  longer  the  head  of  the 
company  that  bears  his  name,  isn't  through 
yet.  He  claims  to  own  two  talkie  patents 
which,  he  alleges,  all  picture  companies  have 
infringed,  and  is  suing.  If  he  wins,  he'll  be 
the  wealthiest  man  in  the  movies.  .  .  .

EIGHBORS 


GOINGS-ON   AMONG   THE   PLAYERS 


THAT  "Mata  Hari"  opening  at 
Grauman's  Chinese  Theatre  had 
the  stellar  ladies  hauling  their  best  bibs  and  tuckers  out  of 
the  moth  balls.  It  was  a  regular  old-time  premiere,  and  it 
didn't  look  much  like  depression.  There  were  enough 
diamonds  and  ermine'  to  make  Peggy  Hopkins  Joyce 
writhe  with  envy. 

Of  course  it  didn't  exactly  keep  people  away  from  the 
theatre,  outside  and  inside, 
to  rumor  that  Garbo  might 
attend.  Only  might,  mind 
you.  Even  while  the  show 
was  going  on,  the  report 
spread  like  wildfire  that 
Garbo  was  watching  the  film 
from  the  projection  room. 
She  wasn't  in  the  projection 
room,  or  within  miles  of  the 
theatre.  Garbo  wouldn't  go 
to  a  premiere  to  see  the 
Battle  of  Bull  Run  with  the 
original  cast. 


ALL    of    our     very     best 

Z~\  people,  my  dear,  were 
out  for  the  opening  in  full 
panoply.  Doug  and  Mary 
were  there.  So  were  Norma 
Shearer  and  Irving  Thalberg. 
Few  people  saw  them,  but 
Marlene  Dietrich  and  Josef 
von  Sternberg  were  also 
among  those  present.  They 
slipped  in  early,  sat  'way  up 
in  front,  and  did  not  wear 
evening  clothes.  Tallulah 
Bankhead,  plumper  than 
ever  before,  was  one  of  the 
swankiest  femmes — all  rigged 
up  in  black  velvet  and  white 
fox.  Her  escort  was  Adrian,

affair,    but 


HE   "Arrowsmith"   opening 

the  following  week  wasn't  quite 
as  mammoth  an  affair,  but  it  was  a  pretty  smart 
shindig,  considering  who  attended.  Mary  Pickford,  in- 
troduced by  her  husband,  friend  Doug,  undertook  to 
make  a  speech  without  walking  to  the  stage. 

It  was  fine  for  the  people  in  the  orchestra  chairs,  but 
the  balcony  customers  were  not  in  such  a  hot  spot.   Those 

in  the  front  balcony  seats 
arose  to  a  man  to  get  a  better 
view  of  America's  Sweet- 
heart. Naturally  the  back- 
row  public  couldn't  see  a 
durned  thing,  and  were  pretty 
put  out  about  it. 

"Sit  down,  sit  down!" 
they  shouted,  all  through 
poor  Mary's  spiel.  No  one 
knew  whether  she  was  de- 
livering Hamlet's  Soliloquy 
or  giving  her  recipe  for  pic- 
calilli. Mary  finished  what- 
ever it  was.  By  golly,  the 
show  has  got  to  go  on,  and 
the  screen's  first  lady  was  not 
going  to  say  "uncle."

ANOTHER    exciting 
l  moment  of  the  evening 
was  the  gentleman  who 

looked  exactly  like  Einstein — you  know,  the  chap  who 
has  that  theory  which  no  one  understands.  Sid  Grauman, 
forty  publicity  men,  and  three  hundred  unpaid,  but 
willing  workers,  tried  to  coax  him  over  to  the  microphone. 
"Nein.  nein,"  muttered  the  stranger,  impatiently. 
And  "nein"  he  remained.  The  staff  felt  better  the  next 
day  when  they  found  out  whom  he  was — just  a  Hollvwood 
tailor.  There's  some  truth  to  the  cinematic  maxim — if  you 
can't  be  somebody,  try  at  least  to   look   like  somebody. 


Lola  Lane — and  isn't  she  a  healthy  specimen? — gets  out 
in  the  desert  sunshine  at  the  El  Mirador  Hotel,  Palm 
Springs,  sporting  an  outfit  by  Evans  of  Beverly  Hills. 
Lew  Ayres,  the  hubby,  must  be  around  somewhere! 


'M    not   saying    a    word, 

mind  you,  but  Loretta 
"Voung  is  wearing  a  diamond 
as  big  as  a  searchlight  on  her 
business  finger.  She  says 
she  bought  it  herself,  but 
pooh-pooh,  Loretta  is  too 
pretty  to  buy  her  own  rings. 
Herbert  Somborn  is  the 
lucky  lad  who  is  seen  places 
with  Loretta.  Somborn  is 
one  of  the  ex-Mr.  Gloria  Swan- 
sons —  number  two  down 
the  line.  He  owns  the  Brown 
Derby  restaurants,  and  there 
are  tour  scattered  around 
Los  Angeles  and  Hollywood. 
The  romance  has  all  been 
pretty  secret.  Loretta  would 
arrive  at  one  of  the  Derby 
eateries  and  dine  with  Som- 
born. Then,  oh,  awfully  casually,  she  would  say  a  formal 
"good  night"  and  depart.  Three  minutes  later  Mr. 
Somborn,  ditto  casually,  would  also  leave.  And  it  didn't 
look  as  if  he  were  going  out  to  wait  for  a  street-car,  either.

"Tom  Brown  is  my  real  name,  and  I'm  going  to 
play  the  lead  in  'Tom  Brown  of  Culver.'  That's 
the  first  time  an  actor  has  ever  had  his  own  name  in 
the  title  of  a  picture.  Isn't  it  swell?"  demands  the 
boyishly  enthusiastic  youngster  who,  at  nineteen,  is 
the  latest  discovery  of  Hollywood. 

"I'm  not  exactly  new  to  films,  since  I  played  the 
fresh  kid  "in  'The  Lady  Lies,'  with  Claudette  Col- 
bert. Remember?  .  .  .  I've  done  bits  in  other  pic- 
tures and  I've  been  on  Broadway,  as  the  boy  in 
Ts  Zat  So.'  with  the  Gleasons. 

"They're  about  my  best  friends  in  pictures,  but 
I've  been  working  so  hard  since  I've  been  here  that 
I  haven't  had  much  time  to  go  out.  .  .  .  I've  been 
dancing  at  the  Ambassador  with  Anita  Louise  and 
Rochelle  Hudson — aren't  they  swell  kids?"  he  cries 
again. 

His  voice  shows  long  stage  training — his  mother 
and  father  are  in  vaudeville — and  his  manner  is 
explosively  boyish.      He  has 
dark  brown  hair,  and  flash- 
ing blue   eyes.      Is  of   me- 
dium height,  and  very  husky. 

"I've  done  some  boxing, 
but  swimming's  my  favorite 
sport.  It'll  be  swell  fun  this 
summer,  going  to  the  beach! 
I  hope  audiences  like  me — I 
want  to  stay  in  Hollywood 
forever!" 


''If  fans  want  to  find  out 
about  my  love  affairs  I'm 
afraid  they'll  be  disappoint- 
ed," says  blue-eyed  Tala  Bi- 
rell.  Hollywood's  latest  im- 
portation. The  lady  comes 
from  Vienna,  has  a  charming 
medium  pitched  voice,  and 
denies  that  she's  trying  to 
imitate  Garbo  even  though 
she  did  quarrel  with  a  wom- 
an interviewer  who  asked  a  too-personal  question. 

"I'm  not  going  to  marry  until  I  find  someone  to 
live  with  for  always."  she  adds.  "I've  seen  too 
much  of  divorce  through  my  friends.  As  for  men, 
I  like  sportsmen  best.  I  used  to  play  tennis  myself 
— five  hours  a  day — until  I  began  developing  mus- 
cles that  look  awful  with  evening  gowns!" 

She's  been  in  Hollywood  since  July  learning  Eng- 
lish, and  now  speaks  without  noticeable  accent. 
Quiet,  aristocratic,  she  seems  older  than  her  twenty- 
three  years,  and  is  probably  the  only  girl  in  Holly- 
wood who  likes  Clark  Gable  because,  "He  is  quiet 
and  sits  in  a  corner.    He  is  charming!" 

Her  first  picture.  "Mountains  in  Flame,"  has  just 
been  completed.  Next  you'll  see  her  in  "The  Mar- 
riage Interlude."  Tala  raps  frantically  on  wood 
when  she  mentions  it.  "I  mitst  succeed!"  And  with 
that  mischievous  smile  and  the  mysterious  manner 
the  public  demands  nowadays,  she  probably  will.

KNOW  what  it  means  to  be 
overweight  !  —  because  for 
years  I  had  the  desperate  fact 
of  it  hammered  into  me.  Be- 
fore I  discovered  this  aston- 
ishing new  way  to  get  rid  of 
fat, my  few  friends  t  ried  to  In-  kind  about  it — 
but  in  their  eyes  1  could  see  their  pity,  their 
secret  satisfaction  that  they  were  slim  and 
slender,  instead  of  being  like  me. 

They  Whispered  A  bout  Me 

Other  women  used  to  be  catty.  Not  to  my  face, 

but   some  of  it  came  back   to  me.   It   was  always, 

"My  dear,  have  you  s<  -  n  Alice  in  that  red  dress  I*1 

.  .  .  nr  "Well  Alice  certainly  looks  her  age  these 

i   -her'' 

They  thought  I'd  ru  ver  have  a  presentable  fig- 
ure.  1  thought  so  too.  I  can  laugh  at  them  now,  of 
course     bul  it  was  a  tragedy  to  me  then.  Would 

I  be  any  f  1  i i! -  i <-i ; t  :■  it  looked  hopeless,  stout- 

ran"  in  my  family,  I  said  to  myself. 
And  I  had  tried  everything  .  .  .  Dieting,  until 
my  nerves  couldn't  stand  It  any  longer.  Pills  and 
Medicines,  till  my  doctor  made  me  stop  them.  I 
tried  "Reducing  Exercises"— but  found  them  so 
c.  so  much  drudgery,  thai  I  just  couldn't 
stick  to  theml 

/  Was  Desperate 

I  looked  years  older  than  I  really  was.  I  tvit 
slugfrfoh.  tired  ill  the  time.  I  -imply  had  to  get 
Blender     some  way.  any  way. 


And  then  ...  I  discovered  the  FLEXROLL!  It 
\\a^  so  EASY;  it  "worked"  so  beautifully  -so 
PLEASANTLY— that  1  hardly  knew  whether  to 
laugh  or  cry!  That  sickening  worry;  those  re- 
marks; the  bitterness  and  unhappiness  I  had  suf- 
fered ...  I  was  tree  of  them  all  at  last,  for  lifel 

The  Easiest  Way  to  Reduce 

I  had  tried  the  old  kind  of  exercising,  of  course. 
But  tliis  was  NEW!  There  wasn't  any  drudgery 
aboul  thisl  I  tiki  d  it  and  I  used  to  .mi nip  upon  the 
seat  for  a  five-minute  "row"*  the  first  thins  in  the 
morning  and  then  sometimes  in  the  evening  just 
before  going  to  bed.  it  put  just  the  right  "sport" 
into  exercise— and  took  the  tiresome  "work'  out  I 
It  transformed  my  figure,  health,  and  strength  too. 

The  pounds  began  to  leave  and  the  strength  and 
health  of  my  youth  began  to  return.  The  bulges  of 
fat  started  to  vanish  from  my  hips,  thighs,  and 
waistline.  Then  my  arms  and  legs  began  to  taper 
down  to  normal,  through  following  the  pictured 
Health  Chart  that  came  with  my  Flcxroll  machine. 

I  began  to  feel  "peppy",  tireless.  People  seemed 
to  take  a  new  Interest  in  me — just  as  they  always 
do  when  a  person  takes  a  new  interest  in  /<<  rst  I'  ' 
And  I  in  beginning  to  become  popular.  Even  my 
whole  attitude  to  lite  it-elf  changed,  when  I 
began  to  wear  the  clothes  Id  often  longed  for, 
so  deep  in  my  heart. 

Gee,  it's  groat  to  he  slender  again!

Taking   In  The  Talkies 

Larry  Reid'S  Slant  On  The  Latest  Films 


■vTi  V 


■*W    1% 


Emma   *  ^ate  to  c°ntempiate  what 

"Emma"  would  be  without 
Marie  Dressier — for  she  glorifies  the  pic- 
ture, instead  ol  the  picture's  glorifying  her. 
In  plot  and  dialogue,  it  has  a  flavor  of  good, 
old  dependable  hokum  and  an  aroma  of  sen- 
timentality. Marie's  rSle  is  that  of  a  robust, 
homely  soul  who  has  been  housekeeper  all 
her  life  to  an  inventor-widower  (Jean  Her- 
sholt),  raising  his  four  children — only  one  of 
whom  (Richard  Cromwell)  returns  her  love, 
particularly  after  she  comes  out  of  the  scul- 
lery and  becomes  the  inventor's  wife.  !t  has 
comedy,  pathos,  a  good  cast — but  nothing 
out  of  the  ordinary  except  Marie,  who  never 
had  a  better  chance  to  prove  that  she  can 
inject  life  into  any  kind  of  drama. 


BROKEN  ExceP*  for  the  title,  this  is 
the  same  picture  that  was 
LULLABY  premiered  as  "The  Man  I 
Killed  " — a  title  more  to  my 
liking.  (I  like  my  realism!)  The  theme  is  an 
enlargement  of  that  old  Civil  War  story  of 
the  Yankee  who  had  to  kill  his  Southern 
brother — with  the  war  the  Great  War,  the 
victim  German,  and  his  unwilling  slayer 
(Phillips  Holmes)  French.  Unable  to  con- 
quer his  remorse,  he  makes  a  pilgrimage  to 
the  German  boy's  home-town,  and  there 
conies  to  know  the  boy's  father  (Lionel 
Barrymore)  and  sweetheart  (Nancy  Carroll). 
Phil  seems  wooden  in  this  role-of-a-lifetime, 
and  Nancy's  part  isn't  her  type;  but  Lionel's 
acting  and  Lubitsch's  direction  gripped  me. 


MURDERS   IN    THE 
RUE    MORGUE 


You  admirers 
of  Poe  are  go- 
ing to  shud- 
der with  hor- 
ror at  this  wild  tale — not  so  much  because  of 
what  happens  therein,  as  because  of  what 
the  script  writers  have  done  to  Poe's  original 
horror  classic.  About  all  that  is  left  is  the 
title.  The  owner  of  the  gruesome  ape  is  not 
a  frightened  sailor,  but  a  newly-created  and 
bloodthirsty  Dr.  Mirakle;  the  great  detec- 
tive, Dupin,  is  transformed  into  an  amorous 
medical  student;  and  Mile.  L'Espanaye, 
who  once  met  a  fate  as  bad  as  death,  is 
spared  this  time.  In  short,  it's  a  synthetic 
thriller,  and  hardly  an  improvement  upon 
Poe — boasting  a  cast  headed  by  Bela  Lugosi. 


Shanghai  Jhey  ™f,ed, the  nr.e- 

lease  of  Marlene  Die- 
EXPRESS  trich's  third  American 

talkie,  because  that 
little  fray  over  in  China  made  the  title 
timely.  But  they  didn't  release  it  any  too 
soon  for  me — for  these  movie-weary  eyes 
haven't  looked  upon  any  superlative  wom- 
anly allure  since  Marlene  made  "Dis- 
honored." The  scene,  of  course,  is  a  train 
— racing  through  China;  the  two  principal 
characters  are  a  Shanghai  waterfront  lady 
and  a  British  officer  out  of  her  past.  Here 
is  vivid  melodrama — with  the  teeming, 
threatening  Orient  an  exciting  unusual  set- 
ting. Clive  Brook  is  Marlene's  most  sophis- 
ticated— and  best — leading  man  to  date. 


THE     MAN     WHO    Besidesoneof 
the  most  intri- 
PLAYED     GOD  guing     titles 

ever  tacked  on 
a  drama,  I  am  happy  to  report  that  George 
Arliss'  newest  picture  boasts  a  story  that  is 
novel,  well  told  and  sincerely  acted — which  is 
high  praise  from  thisol'  castiron  typewriter. 
Arliss  has  the  role  of  a  world-lamed  pianist 
who  finds  adulation  sweet,  until  an  accident 
makes  him  deaf,  casting  him  into  an  eternal 
stillness.  (A  great  scene,  this!)  Embittered 
against  God  for  his  misfortune,  he  finds  life 
a  burden  until  he  learns  to  read  the  lips  of 
those  who  pass  his  window — and  "plays 
God"  to  the  unfortunate.  Arliss  puts  you 
in  his  place.  The  cast  is  excellent. 


THE     HATCHET     MAN    Earner 

Brot  ti- 
ers want  to  call  Edward  G.  Robinson  "the 
man  of  a  thousand  characters" — and  if  the 
man  must  be  trademarked,  this  label  suits 
me.  There  is  no  doubt  that  he  can  play  any 
role  they  give  him,  including  the  Chinese. 
In  his  current  vehicle  he  acts,  with  consid- 
erable effect,  the  part  of  a  Chinese  tong 
leader,  whose  emblem  of  office  is  a  hatchet. 
Moreover,  he  has  to  use  it,  even  on  his  best 
friends — for  he  respects  the  customs  of  old 
China,  not  the  new  American  laws  of  China- 
town. In  short,  it  is  a  new  version  of  that 
story  of  the  feud  between  the  old  ways  and 
the  new — with  an  ending  that  may  knock 
you  out  of  your  seat.  Lurid,  but  effective.

Sore  Throat  and  Colds 

Start  This  W/y . . . 


.  at  the  first  symptom 
. .  gargle  jisterine  every  2  hours  . . . 

quick  relief 


Colds  that  would  ordinarily 
last  9  days,  vanish  in  3 

Look  out  for  wet  or  cold  feet,  draughts, 
sudden  changes  of  temperature;  any  un- 
due exposure.  All  are  contributing  causes 
of  the  common  cold  and  sore  throat. 
Such  exposure  lowers  resistance  so  that 
germ  organisms  in  the  mouth  and  nose 
get  the  upper  hand.  Illness  follows.  At 
the  first  sign  of  trouble,  gargle  with 
Listerine  night  and  morning.  Better  still, 
every  two  hours. 

Listerine  reduces  mouth  bacteria  98% 
and  allays  pain  and  irritation.  It's  amaz- 
ing how  frequently  this  treatment  will 
break  up  a  cold. 

Actual  tests  show  that  colds  that  would 


ordinarily  last  nine  or  ten  days,  vanish  in 
three  or  four.  Colds,  instead  of  being 
severe,  are  mild.  Repeated  tests  on  human 
beings  have  proved  this  again  and  again. 

These  tests  also  revealed  that  the  reg- 
ular twice-a-day  Listerine  gargle  is  a  re- 
markable preventive  of  colds. 

Experiments  show  that  non-Listerine- 
users  contracted  twice  as  many  colds  as 
those  who  gar- 
gled with  Lister- 
ine twice  a  day. 
And  the  colds 
lasted    three 


times  as  long. 

Such  brilliant  results  could  not  be  ex- 
pected from  mouth  washes  so  harsh  they 
irritate  tissue.  Listerine's  success  is  due 
to  the  fact  that,  while  it  kills  germs,  it  is 
soothing  and  healing  to  tissue.  Make  a 
habit  of  using  Listerine  every  day.  It  not 
only  safeguards  your  health,  but  automat- 
ically makes  your  breath  sweet,  whole- 
some, and  agreeable.  It  instantly  ends 
halitosis  (unpleasant  breath),  the  unfor- 
givable social  fault.  Lambert  Pharmacal

The  Lancet  of  London  never  bestows  its  commendation  on  a 
product  without  subjecting  it  to  critical  tests.  And  now  this

of  Listerine.    Remember  that  when  you  buy.

This  is  an  unu: 
story  about  an  unusual 
girl,  who  has  led  an 
unusual  life  and  who 
proves  that  virtue  has 
its  rewards,  even  in 
Hollywood 


Hollywood's   Heroes  Are 
Baffled    bv   Joan    Blondell 


JOAN  BLONDELL  is  too  virtuous.  The  qualifying 
adjective  "too"  is  Hollywood's,  not  Joan's.  There 
are  degrees  of  virtue  in  Film  Town.  But  to  Joan, 
being  virtuous  is  like  being  dead:  One  is— or  one 
isn't.  Joan's  definition  goes,  for  this  is  her  own  story  of 
her  own  virtue,  which  surely  makes  it  a  very  personal 
matter! 

It  isn't  Joan,  herself,  who  claims  she  is  too  virtuous, 
either.  It's  masculine  Hollywood,  which  has  to  see  her 
and  work  around  her  day  after  day,  that  complains.  And 
who  could  blame  it?  You  hear  the  boys  with  vocabularies 
describing  her  as  "impregnably  virginal"  or  something 
like  that.  "Morally  straight  as  a  die"  is  another  testi- 
monial they  dazedly  give  her. 

There  are  facts  about  her  career,  however,  chat  make 
these  moral  endorsements  appear  as  teasingly  paradoxical 


as  some  of  Ripley's  best  items  in  "Believe  It  Or  Not." 

loan  was  born  twentj  -three  years  ago  to  a  continuous 
fife  on  I  he  stage,  beginning  at  the  age  ol  ion  v.  Her  parents 
win-  "Ed  Blondell  and  Company,"  ami  toured  the 
world's  variety  houses.  I  [pr  cradle  w  as  a  w ardrobe  trunk. 
\t  fourteen  she  became  the  sex  appeal  in  "the  five  jumpin' 
l!lon<lt  lis."  At  fifteen  she  ran  awa\  from  one  of  her  many 
schools  and  went  to  \ustralia  on  a  cattle-boat.  At  sixteen 
site  \\  as  lift  "  st  randed  "  by  a  wandering  repei  toire  t  roupe, 
sick  and  penniless,  in  a  Peking,  China,  hospital.  At  seven- 
teen she  was  kidnaped  from  a  different  wandering  troupe 
bj  a  South  American  rancher  whose  advances  she  bad 
rebuffed. 

\t   eighteen— but  win    go  on  and  on  like  that:     Lets 
what  sin's  like,  after  living  such  a  life!

CLARA  BOW'S  First  Interview

How  does  the  famous  redhead  look  upon  life  and  her  future,  now  that  she  is  the  bride

This  is  more  than  the  first  interview  that  Clara  Bow  has 
given  since  her  marriage — it  is  the  first  revelation  of  a

because  of  her  long  silence.    There  have 
been  rumors  that  she  is  still  ill;  that 
she  has  changed  in  appearance ;  that 
she  is  through  with  the  screen. 
Now,  the  truth  comes  out — in 
this  sincere,  human  and  ex- 
clusive story  that  MOVIE 
CLASSIC  is  proud  to  give 
to  you. — Editor. 


THE      only 
definitely 
important 
thing  that 
has  ever  happened  to 
Clara  Bow  is  her  mar- 
riage to  Rex  Bell.  She 
says  this,  herself.  Pic- 
tures are  make-be- 
lieve.    Fame     passes. 
But  marriage — her 
marriage  —  is 
something  that 
will  last. 

"Rex  Bell  has 
given  me  the 
only  unselfish 
devotion  I've 
ever  had,"  ex- 
plains Clara 
simply. 

The  most  ar- 
resting feature 
about  Clara  Bow 
to-day  is  not 
that  vital  fire 
which  brought 
and  kept  a 
world  at  her 
feet,  but  a 
modest  diamond- 
and-platinum 
wedding   band 

that  means  entirely  changed  interests,  new  view 
points,  modified  desires.    The  shining  band  is  un- 
obtrusive on  that  broad,  competent  hand  of  hers. 
But  it  is  her  talisman  against  verbal  assault  and 
vicious  criticism;  against  her  own  great  sensi- 
tiveness; against  aloneness,  friendlessness — and, 
yes — foolishness ! 

Clara,  flaming-haired  tinder  for 
thousands  of  newspaper  headlines,  BY      S  O  N  I  A 


is  rediscovering  in  marriage  those  first  illusions  of  her 
glamourous  career.  She  has  faith  in  other  people  again, 
for  one  thing;  hope  for  tomorrow;  self-confidence. 

Her  hair,  which  was  blonde  last  summer, 
was  again  vividly  auburn  against  the  tapestry 
of  the  divan  as  she  talked — for  this,  her 
first  interview  since  her  marriage.    Her 
eyes  held  a  curious  wistfulness  as  she 
discussed  marriage  and  the  needs 
of  a  woman — and  her  own  mis- 
takes— appraising  them,  judging 
herself. 

"Marriage  has  given  me — 
my s elf!     I    am   no   longer 
afraid."     Her  voice  had   an 
intriguing   sincerity    as    she 
continued — evaluating    her 
own   opinions   and   herself, 
as  much  as  talking  to  an- 
other person.     "The  world 
saw  me  as  a  sort  of — moll! 
What    it    didn't    know    was 
that  the  brazen  hussy  who 
cavorted   around  was   sick  to 
death  of  loneliness  and  fear  and 
heartache. 


Why    Clara    Has 
refused    interviews 

"I  couldn't  "irrust  anyone  to 
quote  me  correctly.  I  talked  to 
a  newspaper  man  and  when  the 
story  came  out  he  had  me  saying, 
dese,  dem  and  dose."  I  might 
have  said  'them' — that's  the  way 
people  talked  where  I  came 
from.  But — I  don't  talk  the  Way 
he  had  me  talking.  Heaven 
knows  I've  had  few  enough  ad- 
vantages— it  seems  cruel  to  make 
me  seem  more  ignorant  than 
am.

Not  Lonely  Any  More 

EING   mar- 
ried   to    Rex 
has    changed     all 
that.  I  have  some- 
one to  depend  on, 
someone    I    can 
trust.    Marriage    is 
my    armor.     I    can 
ook    the    world    in 
the  face  again — con- 
fident.   Rex  and  his 
ove  have  mended  my 
spirit — as  his  care  has 
helped    to    make    my 
shattered   nerves  well 
again.    I've  been  tak- 
ing knocks  alone  for  so 
long   that   knowing 
there's  someone  else  to 
worry    for    me    and    to 
ook  out  for  my  interests 
is  a  wonderful  experience. 
I    feel   so   safe — so   com- 
pletely secure. 

"I've    always    been 
afraid  of  marriage.    I  felt 
that   it   should    be   for   al- 
ways,   and    I    couldn't   see

Feu  people  have  seen  Clara  since  her  elopement  last  December  with  Rev 
Bell,  cowboy  actor  (ri^ht),  who  proved  himself  the  hest  friend  she  has  ever 
had.  She  and  Rex  have  been  honeymooning — simply  by  keeping  to  them- 
selves at  her  Beverly   Hills   home,  where  Clara  is  sunning  herself,  above 


myself  married  to  a  man  with  a  mirror-complex — a  man  who  was 
always  talking  about  his  conquests  "I  women,  who  was  utterly  I 
wholly  engrossed  in  his  own  career  <>r  affairs.  I've  never  before 
known  a  man  who  could  stop  thinking  ol  himsell  long  enough  to 
think  ol  me. 

"Rex  did.  He  understood  that  I  had  to  play.  1  was  young,  I 
had  had  a  most  unhappy  childhood.  I  wanted  to  be  happy,  hut  I 
didn't  quiu-  know  how  ro  go  about  getting  happiness.  Rex  realized 
that  I  needed  protection  and  advice. 

"When   Rex  asked  me  to  many  him  a  year  ago,   I   told  him  that 


I  loved  him  too  much  tor  that. 
I  didn't  know  how  I'd  wear  in 
marriage.  I  had  many  faults — 
and  I  didn't  want  a  I  |o!l\ 
marriage:  I  wanted  something 
substantial  and  lasting.  I  had

Looking  Them  Over 

Gossip    From    The    West    Coast      By     Dorothy    Manners 


JUST  as  we  thought — all  this  romance 
talk  whispered  about  Greta  Garbo 
and  Ramon  Novarro  seems  to  have 
made  a  slight  change  between  them. 
Greta  and  Ramon,  you  remember,  had 
struck  up  a  very  fine  friendship  during  the 
filming  of  "Mata  Hari."  When  Novarro 
went  to  New  York  following  the  comple- 
tion of  the  picture,  Greta,  too,  happened 
to  plan  a  vacation  to  the  Big  Town  and 
they  saw  each  other  frequently.  So  fre- 
quently, in  fact,  that  the  chatter  writers 
began  to  wonder  if  there  might  not  be  a 
romance  brewing.  Certainly  Greta  had 
never   been   so   chummy  with   anv  other 


Does  the  chap  below  look  familiar?

But  apparently  the  hints  of  the  pre.^, 
have  got  in  their  dirty  work. 

Since   Greta   and    Ramon   returned   t 
Hollywood    there    have    been    very    few 
meetings  between  them  and  their  studio 
tete-a-tetes  are  growing  less  and  less  fre- 
quent. 

No  bad  feelings — you  understand — just 
too  much  talk! 


CONNIE  Bennett  went  to  a  pre-

bad  cold,  or  something  .  .  .  and  colds  can 
get  pretty  bad  on  some  occasions. 


IF  Fred  Waring  were  quoted  cor- 
rectly, there  can't  be  much 
truth  in  the  report  that  he  and 
Dorothy  Lee  will  be  married  some 
time  this  year  (for  her  third  trip 
to  the  altar). 

The  popular  orchestra  leader  is 
supposed  to  have  the  inside  track  to 
the  peppy  Dorothy's  heart — but 
evidently  he  feels  differently  about 
it.  Fred  is  said  to  have  said  that  he 
and  Dorothy  might  have  "made 
up"  after  the  break-up  of  her  mar- 
riage to  Jimmy  Fidler,  but  with  the

NO  matter  what  your 
private  opinion  of  this

may  be,  "Frankenstein"  goes 
down  in  box-office  history  as 
one  of  the  most  successful 
pictures  ever  produced.  It 
has  outplayed  almost  every 
other  box-office  hit  of  the 
season.  Even  its  nearest 
rival,  "The  Champ,"  took 
second  place  to  the  thriller 
picture  in  cities  where  they 
were  booked  simultaneously. 


BORIS  Kar- 
loff,  star 
of  "Franken- 
stein," is  the 
most  modest 
actor  Holly- 
wood has  en- 
countered in  a 
long  time. 

Recently  he 
was  invited  to 
be  the  guest  of 
honor  at  the 
monthly  din- 
n  e  r  of  the 
Wampas.  Kar- 
loff  said  he 
would  accept 
on  one  condi- 
tion— that  he 
be  permitted 
to  bring  along 
the  make-up 
artist  respon- 
sible for  his  "monster" 
make-up  in  the  picture. 

"This  man  deserves  a 
world  of  credit  that  he 
will  never  get,"  explained 
Karloff.  "I'd  like  him  to 
share  this  little  honor 
with  me." 

The  name  of  the  chap  that  Karloff 
brought  forward  is  Jack  Pierce. 

Strangely  enough,  Freclric  March 
was  equally  insistent  on  crediting 
Wally  VVestmore  with  a  large  part  of 
his  success  in  "Dr.  Jekyll  and  Mr. 
Hyde."  "Please  mention  this  kid's 
name,"  Freddy  begged  us.  "And 
remember  it  isn't  Percy  or  Ernie 
Westmore — it's  their  brother,  Wally." 


WHILE  we're 
on  the  sub- 
ject of  "Franken- 
stein"— here's  the 
best  off-stage  laugh 
inspired  by  that 
picture: 

Karloff  was 
miscast  in  that  pic- 
ture," said  a  cer- 
tain Somebody. 
"  So-and-So  (mean- 
ing a  certain  so- 
phisticated woman 
star  who  goes 
around  frightening 
little  children  with 
her  temperament), 
should  have  played 
it."

Wallace 

Beery 

tells   how    it 
feels   to   be 

Dead 

for    an    hour 


How  would  you  like  to  be  sitting  at 
breakfast  and  hear  your  death  sud- 
denly announced  on  theradio?  That  s 
the  unique  experience  that  happened 
to  Wally  Beery — he  saw  his  wife  be- 
come hysterical  —  he  learned  how 
the  news  affected  his  friends.  And 
right  then  and  there,  Wally  got  a  new 
outlook  on  himself  and  on  life.  Let 
him  tell  you  about  it ! 

By    N ancy    PRyoR 


Wallace  Beery  has  had  an  experience  that  few,  if  any, 
of  us  will  ever  have.  He  has  been  "dead"  for  an  hour — 
to  the  rest  of  the  world;  he  has  heard  his  own  death 
notice  come  suddenly  over  the  radio ;  he  has  had  an  inkling 
of  how  the  world  would  feel  about  his  passing.  What  were 
his  sensations  and  reactions — how  did  he  feel,  what  did 
he  do,  what  did  he  think?  He  tells  you  in  this  story 
— which  will  give  you  a  new  slant  on  Wally  Beery,  just  as 
Wally,  himself,  has  a  new  slant  on  life. — Editor. 


W. II. I. .ICE  REEKY  is  discovered  dead  in  his 
dressing-room  .  .  .  dead  from  heart  failure." 
The  hour  was  early  morning — breakfast 
rime  wlun  those  words  came  over  the 
radio,  startling  Hollywood.  Housewives  were  stirring 
about  their  kitchen  duties,  half-listening  to  a  program; 
business  men  were  awaiting  tin-  relay  of  the  morning's 
news  broadcast  before  rushing  oft  to  work:  youngsters 
were  riming  in  on  the  last  of  a  program  before  hiking  of! 
to  school;  thousands  of  California  homes  were  "on  the 
air" — when  suddenly  the  voice  of  the  announcer  broke 
sharply  with  the  statement  that  Wallace  Beeij  big, 
laughing,  lovable  Wally — had  dropped  (had  in  his  dress- 
ing-room. 

Thousands,  chilled  by  the  report,  must  have  thought: 


"It  can't  be  true  .  .  .  nor  Walk  Beery  ■  •  ■  not  the  fellow 
we  saw  lasr  night  in  '  1  he  Champ'  .  .  ." 

\i  wspaper  offices,  in  a  moment,  were  turned  into  bed- 
lam with  the  jangling  of  telephones;  hundreds  were  calling 
to  verify  the  news.  Studio  newspaper  reporters  hurriedly 
grabbed  their  liars  and  hailed  taxicabs,  lor  Wally — good 
old  Wally,  everybody's  pal     was  gone! 

Those  First  Few  Seconds 

IN  an  apartment  in  Hollywood  a  man  and  a  woman  sat 
staring  at  one  another  over  the  breakfast  table- 
dumbfounded,  too  amazed  to  speak  to  one  another,  not 
believing  their  cars  at  the  announcement  they  had  just 
heard  from  t  he  loudspeaker. 

Rita  Gillman  Beery  cried:  "//..

So?    Wall. n  i    I  It  cry  «  as  dead 

Wallace  Beery  lifted  the  cup  of  strong  black  coffee  to 
his  lips  ami  drank  of  it.  He  felt  he  needed  it.  He  told 
me  later  that  as  long  as  he  lives,  he  will  never  forget  the 
strangeness  of  that  moment-  because  it  was  without  pn 
cedent,  impossible  to  describe,  lie  was  not  horrified  or

Lupe's.  Rumor  even  had 
them  engaged.  And  was 
Randie  surprised — and  was 
Lupe   angry!    She   acted    it!

If  Gary  Cooper  wonders 
how  he  rates  with  Lupe 
now — eight  months  after

story.  Lupe  hasn't  forgotten 
what  he  wrote  her  after 
they  parted — and  she's  even 
jealous  of  the  Countess  he 
has   been   seen   with   lately!

Volcanic  Lupe  has  been  keeping  everybody  guessing — for  there  has  been  one 
romance  rumor  after  another  trailing  her,  ever  since  they  parted.  But  she  releases 
some  pent-up  emotions  in  this  story — and  tells  how  she  feels  toward  the  men  in  her 

life,  especially  her  Garee!

WHAT  has  happened  to  Lupe  Velez  since  her

these  rumors  of  a  romance  with  a  prominent 
film  executive — with  John  Gilbert — with 
Randolph  Scott,  a  newcomer  at  Paramount  who  looks 
like  her  Garee?  Not  a  thing,  vows  Lupe.  Moreover,  she 
adds,  talking  of  Gary,  "Never  again  shall  I  loff  anyone 
so  much.   I  loff  him  as  long  as  I  live." 

It  all  came  out  when   I  asked  her,  "What  about  the 
future,  Lupe?    What  do  you  want  of  it?" 

She  was   in   bed — a   huge   bed,   really  two   beds  made 
together.  The  question  made  her  sit  up  straight. 

"I  don't  think  about  the  future,"  she  cried  defiantly. 
"I  won't  think  about  it.      I  take  every  bit  of  fun,"  she

clenched  her  hands  greedily,  "every  bit  of  happiness  and 
laughing  I  can  get  to-day.  Tomorrow  I  might  get  run 
over  by  an  automobile." 

"You  don't  want  to  settle  down?    Have  a  family?" 

Lupe  flung  her  arms  up,  laughed  aloud.  "Me?.  No,  no. 
I  am  not  the  type.  To  do  that,  you  plan  ahead.  I  won't. 
Being  free — that's  what  I  want.  That's  why  I  broke  with 
Gary." 

She  paused,  struck  by  a  thought.  Her  eyes  grew  intense, 
angry.  "And  I  did  break  with  him.  I  read  these  stories — 
about  how  his  family  made  him  leave  me.  Nobody  could 
have  made  Gary  leave  me.    I  left  him."

The  last  picture  Estelle  made  was  "The  Unholy 
Garden,"  but  she  had  just  received  several  screen, 
stage  and  radio  offers  when  the  jinx  hit  her  again 


YOU  read,  not  many  weeks  ago, 
how  her  jinx  again  caught  up  with 
Estelle  Taylor  as  she  was  riding  home 
from  a  hotel  dance  one  night — and 
her  car  skidded  on  the  wet  pavement 
and  struck  a  palm  tree,  throwing  her 
against  the  top  of  the  car,  injuring 
her  "painfully."  But  you  haven't

Estelle  was  rushed  to  the  Holly- 
wood Receiving  Hospital  with  a  bad 
cut  in  her  scalp.  The  police  surgeon 
who  stitched  it  was  surprised  at  his 
patient.  He  had  handled  movie  stars 
before,  and  one  and  all  excitedly 
cried,  "Oh,  will  there  be  a  scar? 
Please  have  someone  send  for  my 
lawyer!"  But  Estelle,  who  wouldn't 
take  an  anaesthetic,  kidded,  "Hurry 
and  close  this  up,  Doctor!  I  feel  a 
draft!" 

The  doctor  told  her,  when  he  sent 
her  home,  that  she  would  hardly  be 
able  to  work  for  four  or  five  weeks.

big  screen,  stage  and  radio 
offers,  and  she  was  deter- 
mined to  discount  her  in- 
juries— when,  suddenly, 
she  began  to  have  unbear- 
able headaches.  Finally, 
reluctantly,  she  had  X-rays 
taken,  and  they  showed 
that  she  had  a  fracture  of 
the  cervical  vertebrae.  In 
plain  English,  she  had  bro- 
ken her  neck! 

On  the  very  day  that  she 
intended  to  accept  Univer- 
sal's  offer  of  a  big  role  in 
"Night  Club,"  they  sus- 
pended her  by  the  neck  in  a 
leather  harness  for  an  hour 
to  get  the  dislocated  bones 
back  into  place  before  fit- 
ting on  a  plaster  cast.  Even 
then  she  would  not  take  an 

anaesthetic.    "It's  my  neck  and  my 

hanging,"  she  told 

them      spunki- 

ly.     "and     I     cer- 
tainly should  have 

some    say     about 

how     it's     to     be 

done." 

The    plaster 

cast    they    put 

around    her    neck 

shrank    so    much 

that   she   could 

hardly   swallow. 

The    pressure    on 

her    throat    made 

her  ill.    For  three 

days   she   could 

not  eat  anything. 

They  chipped  off 

the  plaster  with  a 

mallet  and  chisel, 

and  substituted  a         c  ,     -  .  ,,

tached  to  a  pulley  above  the  head- 
board of  her  head,  stretched  her  neck 
without  ceasing  from  night  to  morn- 
ing and  morning  to  night.  When  she 
sleeps,  they  pack  her  rigidly  into 
place  with  sandbags,  lest  a  sudden 
movement  undo  all  the  healing  of 
weeks. 

Estelle's  jinx  has  prevented  her, 
before  this,  from  doing  things  she  had 
hoped  to  do — but  it  never  yet  has 
caught  Estelle  down  on  her  luck. 
That's  why  she  has  received  hundreds 
of  telegrams  and  letters  and  flowers, 
and  why  she  has  a  steady  procession 
of  callers.  Noel  Scott,  the  chauffeur 
who  was  driving  the  car  when  it 
skidded,  comes  remorsefully  to  bring 
her  presents  of  cream  puffs.  A  prop- 
boy  at  a  studio  invented  a  reading 
stand  that  can  be  suspended  over  her 
head.  But  Estelle  is  waiting  for  one 
message  that  hasn't  yet  arrived. 

When  her  acci- 
dent was  first 
headlined  in  the 
papers,  reporters 
went  to  see  Jack 
Dempsey.  He 
told  them  how 
sorry  he  felt  for 
Estelle,  and  de- 
scribed his  tele- 
gram of  sympathy 
to  his  ex-wife. 
The  public  read 
about  that  tele- 
gram and  felt  a 
twinge  of  senti- 
mentality about 
it.  But  to  date 
Estelle  has  not 
received  it. 

And    is    Estelle

contrary,  it 
strikes  her  funny!

Whoops!  He-Man 
Bickford  Opens 
Lingerie  Shop! 

Brawny  Charlie,  As  Sideline  To  Actins, 
Will  Sell  Dainty  Unmentionables" — 
Has     Competitor      In      Ivan     Lebedeff 

By     MADGE     CARVEL 


CHARLES  BICKFORD,  big,  red- 
headed he-boy  of  the  studios, 
has  gone  in  for  lacy  things  with  pink 
and  blue  bows  on  them — but  smile, 
darn  you,  smile,  when  you  say  those 
words.  In  short,  Charlie  has  opened 
one  of  those  shops  where  they  sell 
little  pastel  underthings  to  the  ladies. 
Yes,  you  read  it  correctly — Bickford 
is  the  name.  The  same  lad  who  spoke 
his  mind  to  Cecil  B.  de  Mille  (who's 
usually  "yessed")  and  got  so  he- 
mannish  about  his  roles  that  M-G-M 
figured  they  couldn't  stand  the  virility 
and  let  his  option  lapse. 

But  Charlie  isn't  worrying.  He's 
doing  parts  at  all  the  studios  now, 
and  lit-  lias  a  new  and  profitable  side- 
line. The  very  dainty  and  delicate 
shop  on  Hollywood  Boulevard  is 
called  The  Mouse  of  liicksrorm — 
i  ombining  Biclcford's  name  with  that 
of  Miss  J  o  a  n 
Storm,  the  New 
York  designer 
who  will  manage 
the  shop.  Char- 
lie's mot  to  is:"Let 
'cm  lau^h ! "  I  le's 
busy  counting 
the  week's  profits 
"ii  lace  panties — 
and  maybe:  you 
think  he  isn't! 

Lingerie,  t  o 
Charlie,  is  |ust  a 
business  —  and 
he's  strong  o  n 
hacking  anything 
that  will  bring  a 
legitimate  dime  ol 
profit .  I  lis  "l her 
business  ventures, 
all  in  running  or- 
der, include  a 
whaling     ship,     a 


lug  parking  station  and 
garage,  a  chicken  ranch,  a 
hog  farm  and  some  fishing 
schooners.  If  there's  mon- 
ey  to  be  made  in  lingerie, 
as  well  as  in  hogs,  Charlie 
is  all  for  it. 

He  got  the  idea  for  the 
shop  a  couple  of  years  ago 
wlu-n  he  was  being  inter- 
viewed by  a  gushing  lady 
reporter.  She  asked  him 
what  he  would  like  to  do 
it  he-  weren't  a  movie  actor. 
Because  he  thought  it 
would  be  a  silly  answer  to 
a  silly  question,  Charlie 
replied,  "  I'd  like-  to  run  a 
lingerie  shop.-'  He  meant 
it  to  be  just  a  joke — but 
now  it  doesn't  seem  so 
ridiculous.  It's  business.

Charlie  Bickford  isn't  going  te>  attempt  to  sell  the 
things,  himself — but  here  vein  see  hint)  showing  Noel 
Francis  some  of  the  stock  in  his  new  Boule\  ard  shop 


Here's  the  way  mosl  people  think  of 
Bickford — as    a    rough,    cussing    he- 
man,  just  as  in  "Anna  Christie"

fair  laches  have  to

But  Charlie  is  going  to  have  some 
male-  competition  in  his  new  enter-

Ready  For  Comeback 

After  Tropic  Exile 


Handsome  Young   Actor,  Who     Dis-

Native     In    Tahiti  —  Renewed    Both 
Health  And  Ambition 


How  Barry  Nor- 
ton looked  when 
he  entered  pictures 


BARRY    NORTON,    who    quietly 
"disappeared"  from  Hollywood 
about  a  year  ago,  is  back.    When  he 
left,  the  handsome  young  Argentine 
actor  looked  jaded,  old  beyond  his 
twenty-four  years,  with  puffy  eyes, 
thinning  hair  and  fifty  pounds  of  ex- 
cess weight  that  told  of  movie 
parties.     He  has  come  back 
bronzed,  with  a  new  waistline 
and  a  thick  crop  of  hair; 
he  has  lost  forty-five 
pounds   and   looks 
literally  younger 
than  he  did 
when  he  first 
entered   the 
movies 
seven  years 
ago.  That's 
what  "going 
native"  in 
the   South 
Seas     has 
done  for  Bar- 
ry Norton. 

He  had  been 
"a  coming  star" 
in  silent  days,  but 
in  talkies  he  had 
worked  obscurely  in  Span- 
ish versions — except  for  a 
brief  bit  in  "Dishonored." 
Then,  without  announcing 
his  intention,  Barry  quiet- 
ly slipped  away  from  the 
town  that  had  given  him 
fame  and  fortune  and  then 
had  taken  them  away.   He 
went  to  Tahiti,  in  the  So- 
ciety   Islands,    and   there, 
quite  deliberately,  became 
a    healthy,    happy    social 
outcast.    Now,  he  is  ready

saw     Barry — and     under- 
stood why  he  lived  as  he 
did.  But  the  white  col- 
ony of  Papeiti,  capital  "city"  of 
Tahiti,  was  shocked  by  his  pref- 
erence for  the  gay,  child- 
like   brown     people, 
when  he  might  have 
been    enjoying 
"civilized 
society,"  loafing 
in    white    flan- 
nels,   drinking 
highballs,  and 
dancing  to 
phonograph 
jazz    in    their 
b  ungalows. 
Toward     the 
last,     "they 
didn't     even

But  little  he  cared! 
The  first  month   I 
was     in     Papeiti."     re- 
counts   Barry,    "I    lived    as 
the  whites  live  in  the  South 
Seas.    I  drank  a  good  deal — 
there  isn't  much  else  to  do 
to  pass  the  time,   according 
to  white  standards.     I  grew 
heavier.    I  felt  no  better.    It 
was   very   much   like   Holly- 
wood.

with  some  of  the  brown  boys. 
I  had  learned  to  admire  them.

est,  most  hospitable,  gayest-hearted 
people  in  the  world.  So  I  left  my 
white  flannels  and  silk  shirts  and  sun 
helmets  in  Papeiti,  and  went  to  one 
of  the  most  remote  islands.  I  wore 
onlv  the  parpeo,  the  native  loin  cloth. 
I  learned  to  spear  fish,  and  went 
hunting  in  the  mountains,  and  swam 
and  ran  on  the  beaches.  They  named 
me  'Puarenua' — which  means  'Horse' 
— because  I  ran  so  much.  I  shaved 
my  head  just  to  make  sure  I  wouldn't 
go  back  and  'beachcomb'  in  Papeiti 
— for  the  real  beachcombing  is  done 
in  the  saloons  there,  where  white  men 
loaf  and  drink  and  forget,  not  where 
they  live  the  simple,  healthy  native 
life.  But  I,  of  course,  was  called  a 
'beachcomber'  by  those  others." 

At  night,  the  natives  go  to  bed  at 
eight  o'clock.  It  was  then,  when  the 
ghostly  tropical  moon  printed  the 
patterns  of  the  palms  on  the  native 
huts  that  Barry  Norton,  screen  actor, 
sometimes  thought  of  Hollywood — 
as  of  a  place  so  far  away  that  it 
seemed  a  fantastic  dream.  But  the 
time  came  when  he  was  homesick, 
when  he  fought  that  subtle  persua- 
sion of  the  South  Seas,  and  came 
back.  And  now  it  is  his  pagan  ex- 
istence on  those  far  away,  sunny 
islands  that  seems  the  dream — a 
dream  that  gave  him  peace  and  his 
health    and    his

SARI  MARITZA,  Paramount's 
newest,  youngest,  friendliest  and 
blondest  exotic,  is  just  a  little 
"burned."  Here  she  is,  one  of 
Europe's  better-known  thrills,  be- 
coming a  star  in  her  first  American 
talkie — and  it  turns  out  that  Holly- 
wood reporters  know  nothing  about 
her  except  as  "the  girl  Charlie 
Chaplin  was  engaged  to  last  Spring" 
or  as  "the  girl  who  understudied 
Dietrich  in  Berlin" ! 

If  it  weren't  that  San  is  a  friendly, 
languorous  person,  she  would  prob- 
ably have  a  fit  of  good,  old-fashioned 
European  temperamentals.  But  right 
from  the  start,  she  wants  to  put  us 
straight  about  these  two  Chaplin 
rumors:  (i  I  She  is  not,  and  never  lias 
been,  married  or  engaged  to  anybody 
— including  Charlie  Chaplin;  (2)  he 
did  not  attempt  to  sign  her  as  his 
leading  lady  for  his  next  production. 

\s  for  the  rumor  that  Chaplin  pre- 
sented her  with  an  elaborate  ruby- 
and-diamond  cigarette  case,  San 
maintains  a  discreet  silence.  If 
Charlie  did  give  her  a  gem-studded 
case,  it  was  only  something  to  keep 
cigarettes  in — and  not  a  pledge  <>! 
romantic  interest. 

"I  was  appearing  in  films  in  Lon- 
don at  the  tune  Mr.  Chaplin  arrived," 
San  explains,  her  voice  reminiscent  of 
blues  singers.  "His  film,  'City 
Lights,'  was  about  to  open  there,  and 
he  arranged  a  large  party  for  the

complicated     steps 
we    did     attracted     a 
good  deal  of  attention. 
The  press  took  note  of 
it,    and    it    must    have 
echoed  in  America  as  a 
romance  rumor. 

"The  subject  of  love 
was  never  mentioned 
between  us — we  were

she  ever  understudied  Marlene  Diet-

Carmel  Myers,  who  is  Mrs.  Ralph  Blum 
in  private  life,  has  temporarily  retired 
from  the  screen  to  await  a  "blessed  event" 


By  sue  Dibble 

WHENEVER    a    movie    star    is 
robbed  and  the  news  gets  into 
the  papers,  the  skeptics  cry,  "Fake! 
It's  just  a  publicity  gag!"    They  said 
it  about  the  recent  hold-up  of  Carmel 
Myers,  when  she  lost  twenty 
thousand    dollars'    worth    of 
jewelry    to    "two    courteous 
burglars."    But  this  was   no 
fake.     Carmel,    who    is    Mrs. 
Ralph  H.  Blum  in  private  life 
and    is    about    to    become    a 
mother,  received  such  a  shock 
that  she  had  to  cancel  a  big 
radio    contract — because    her 
voice  was  gone ! 

"My  husband  was  out  of 
town,"  relates  Carmel,  "but  I 
didn't  teel  nervous — and  be- 
sides, it  wasn't  late  when  my 
maid  and  I  came  home  to  the 
apartment.  The  De  Sylvas, 
across  the  hall,  were  out  and 
nobody  heard  my  scream, 
when  I  saw  that  burglar 
come  out  of  hiding,  with  a  gun 
in  his  hand  and  a  handker- 
chief tied  across  his  face. 
'Keep  still,  and  I  won't  hurt 
you.  Miss  Myers,'  he  said.  I 
thought  ot  my  baby  coming 
next  May.  'Don't  point  your 
gun  at  me!'  I  cried.  'Can't 
you  see? — I'm  going  to  have  a 
child!' 

"He  seemed  awfully  em- 
barrassed, 'We  didn't  know- 
that  or  we  wouldn't  have 
bothered  you,'  he  said.  By 
that  time  his  partner  had 
come  m,  dragging  my  maid. 
But  they  didn't  mean  to  turn 
back  now.  They  asked  me 
where  I  kent  my  jewelry  and  I

told  them.  I  stood  watching  them  go 
through  my  things.  I  kept  saying  to 
myself,  'I  mustn't  get  hysterical.  I 
mustn't  faint.  There's  only  one 
thing    that's    important — the    baby.' 


"They  kept  asking,  'How  much  is 
this  worth?  How  much  did  that 
cost?'  I  tried  to  answer  calmly. 
'Please  hurry  up  and  go,'  I  told  them. 
'Can't  you  see  how  I'm  trembling?' 
I'm  afraid  I  talked  like  a  movie 
scenario.  'Sit  down  and  take  it  easy, 
ma'am.'  they  urged.  'We  don't 
want  anything  to  happen  to  you.' 
They  had  evidently  read  about  the 
jewelry  that  movie  stars  are  supposed 
to  have,  because  they  didn't  believe 
me  when  I  told  them  they  had  all  I 
owned.  'My  money's  in- 
vested in  real  estate,'  I 
apologized. 

"I    asked   if  they   would 

please    leave    my    wedding

They  got  down  on 

their  hands  and  knees  and 

lunted  on   the  carpet   and 

under  things. 

Finally,   they 

located    it    and 

handed  it  back, 

and  I   thanked 

them. 

"After    they 
had    gone,    I 
called  my  bro- 
ther and  thepo- 
ice.     It   wasn't   until 
then  that  I  discovered 
my  voice  was  almost 
gone.     Maybe  it  was 
the  scream,  maybe  it 
was  nerves.    Anyhow, 
I  had  to  give  up  the 
radio    contract.     And 
nobody  in  my  family 
dares  to  come  into  a 
room  softly  nowa- 
days!"

Youths  Screen  Career  Delayed  A  Year 
By  His  Refusal  To  Take  Fathers  Name

"I 


WOULD  rather  see  my  son  dead 
at  my  feet  than  a  motion  picture 
actor!"  ton  Chaney  once  told  me. 
And  now  his  son,  Creighton  Chaney, 
sLx  feet  two,  twenty-five  years  old,  is 
going  to  desert  the  plumbing  profes- 
sion to  become  a  motion  picture 
actor.  He  has  just  signed  a  contract 
with  RKO,  and  it  is  said  that  the 
company  has  great  plans  for  him. 
He  is  the  virile  masculine  type  that 
Clark  Gable  has  just  made  popular 
again,  which  may  be  one  reason  for 
his  being  signed;  but  the  main 
reason  is  that  he  is  the  son  of  that 
very  great  actor,  Lon  Chaney. 

" I  suppose  I  have  had  a  sub- 
conscious desire  for  an  actor's  career 
all  my  life,"  says  young  Chaney 
simply.  "  But  my  lather  and  1  talked 
it  over  and  agreed  that  one  actor  in 
the  family  was  enough.  If  he  had 
lived,  1  would  have  gone  on  with  my 
work  as  a  manufacturer  of  plumbing 
supplies.  Now  that  he  is  gone,  I  see 
no  reason  why  1  shouldn't  try  movies. 

"  I    have    never   been   to 
Hollywood     parlies    or 
spent   much    time   at 
the    studios,     b  ii  t

tried  to  enter  the  profession  under  his

tacked  to  the  end  ol  it.  As  a  matter  of 
hut.  his  refusal  to  enter  pictures  that 
way  has  delayed  his  screen  career  al- 
mosl  a  year.  Several  studios  made 
him  offers  after  Lon  Chaney's  death, 
provided  he  would  rake  his  lather's 
name.  But  it  was  not  until  he  found 
a  company  that  would  allow  him  to 
be  "Creighton  Chaney"  that  he 
signed  a  movie  com  i  act. 

The  upper  half  ot  his  face  is  strik-

dark  hair  and  splendid  teeth;  his 
voice  is  deep  and  pleasant;  and  he  is 
worried  because  he  doesn't  know 
what    to    do    with    his    hands.

Romance  No  Stranger  To 
Elsie  Janis,  Who  Weds  At  Forty-Two 

Actress    Love  For  Mother  Did  Not  Prevent  Her  Marrying  Before,  As  Rumored — 
Groom  Is  Gilbert  Wilson,  Sixteen  Years  Her  Junior 
By   MARION    DUGGAN 


WHEN   Elsie   Janis,    fa- 
mous   c  om  e  d  i  - 
enne,  recently  married 
for    the    first    time — 
and    then    married 
Gilbert    Wilson, 
young    actor 
sixteen  years  her 
junior — the  rest 
of  the  world  may 
have  been 
surprised,    but 
not   Holly- 
wood.   The 
movie   town, 
where  she  had 
taken  to  writ- 
ing for  the  talk- 
ies,   had     seen 
the      beginning 
of    the    end    of 
Elsie's  long  spin- 
sterhood  —  and 
knew    that    it    was 
not    true    that    her 
mother,    now   dead, 
had    kept    her    tal- 
ented daughter  from 
marrying.    This  was 
pure  legend,  which  is 
now  exploded,  after 
all  these  years. 

Elsie,  herself,  used 
to  say,  "Why  should 
I  marry  when  I  have 
Jane?"  The  affection 
that  existed  between 
Elsie  and  her  mother 
Jane  Bierbower.was  remark- 
able— and    no    doubt    kept 
Elsie  from  feeling  the  need 
of  other  relationships.    But 
her  Hollywood  friends  laugh 
at  the  idea  that  "the  Sweet- 
heart of  the  A.E.F." — a  title 
Elsie     earned     during     the 
War — had  missed  romance 
prior  to  her  startling  mar- 
riage at  forty-two  to  a  hand- 
some youth  in  his  twenties. 
"Why,     Elsie     has     had 
more    attention    and    devo- 
tion    and    love    than     any 
other  woman    I    have   ever 
known,"    says    one    of   her 
most  intimate  friends,  who  has  known 
her    from     childhood.      "Men     were 
always  crazy  about  her;  she  has  had 


iterally  dozens  of  pro- 
posals.       Her     fame 
has  attracted  many 
eligible     celebri- 
ties  to   her.     She 
might  have  mar- 
ried    a    French 
duke.    She 
might   have 
been   the   wife

from  trying  to

•'Most 
people    do 
not  seem  to 
know      that 
Elsie  was  en-

least    twice — once    to    a    famous   ex- 
plorer   who    died    of   typhoid    on    a 
jungle    trip,    and  once   to    a   French 


Acme 


aviator  who  was  killed  in  the  War. 
Her  mother  approved  of  both  of  them. 
"Since  Elsie  first  came  to  Holly- 
wood, she  has  had  attention  from 
men  stars  and  writers  that  many  a 
young  girl  might  envy.  Wherever 
she  went,  she  was  surrounded  by  a 
crowd  of  men,  most  of  them  younger 
than  she.  Several  months  after 
Elsie  lost  her  mother,  John  Charles 
Thomas,  the  singer,  gave  a  party  in 
his  Hollywood  home,  and  we  per- 
suaded Elsie  to  go.  At  this  party  she 
met  a  young  actor  who  had  been 
appearing  in  the  'Nine  O'Clock 
Revue'  with  Julian  Eltinge 
downtown.  He  was  entirely 
unknown,  but  he  was 
extremely  handsome  and 
charming,  and  came  from  a 
fine  Chicago  family. 

"From  the  moment  that 
Gilbert  Wilson  was  intro- 
duced to  Elsie,  he  was  ob- 
viously infatuated  with  her. 
From  that  evening,  he  and 
Elsie  were  constantly  to- 
gether. We  all  knew  they 
were  deeply  in  love.  There 
had  always  been,  I  think, 
something  maternal  in  her 
attitude  toward  her  mother, 
and  we  felt  that  there  was 
something  maternal  in  her 
feeling  for  Gilbert.  But  she 
was  worried  by  the  difference 
in  their  ages. 

"She  sent  him  away  to 
Chicago  to  test  out  their 
feeling  for  one  another  by 
absence.  She  denied  rumors 
of  their  engagement,  and  I 
think  she  tried  to  deny  her  own  heart 
— but  couldn't  in  the  end.  It  may 
seem  a  strange  romance  to  the  rest 
of  the  world — a  'June-and-October' 
romance — but  not  to  us  who  know 
Elsie  Jams.  The  sixteen-year  differ- 
ence in  their  ages  means  that  Elsie  is 
sixteen  years  wiser  and  more  charm- 
ing than  she  was  in  her  twenties." 

And  what  does  Elsie,  herself,  say 
about  her  marriage?  She  intimates 
that  she  and  the  bridegroom  laugh 
more  than  most  newlyweds  —  but 
hardly  at  each  other.  Already,  she 
hints,  she's  inviting  the  world  to 
their  silver  anniversary  in  1957.

Elissa  Landi's  own  story 

about  her  Grandmother, 

Empress  Elizabeitb 


I: 


ve    always 

known  that 

the  E  m- 
.pressEHza- 
beth  was  my 
grandmother, " 
Elissa  Landi 
told  me,  "but 
I  could  prove 
it  to  no  one  until  recently, 
wb.cn  I  was  given  indispu- 
table proof. 

"To   me,   it   seems   odd   that 
proof  should    be    considered    so 
necessary.     For  example:  There 
cannot    be   found    in   the   world 
to-day    a    shred    of   proof   that 
I've    ever    been    born,    and    yet 
I'm    reasonably    sure    I     exist. 
There    is     no     proof    that     the 
Countess  Landi  is  my  moth 
and  yet  deep  down 
in  my  heart  I  know 
this  to  be  true.  My 
birthplace  was 
Venice,  Italy;  and 
the   fact   that   the 
records   were   des- 
troyed by  fire

This  is  the  first  story  that  Elissa  Landi  has  ever 
authorized  about  the  fact  that  she  is  the  grand- 
daughter  of   Empress    Elizabeth    of   Austria— 
and  contains  Elissa  s  first  actual 
proof  of  her  royal  ancestry,  as 
told  by  Elissa,  herself 


In  a  story  about  her  in  the 
February  MOVIE  CLASSIC, 
titled  "The  Most  Baffling 
Redhead,"  the  statement  was 
made  that  Elissa  Landi  was 
the  granddaughter  of  Em- 
press Elizabeth,  and  added, 
"But  she  said  nothing,  and 
wished  nothing  to  be  said." 
Elissa  has  since  changed  her 
mind.  Here,  for  the  first  and 
last  time,  she  breaks  her 
silence  in  the  controversy  as 
to  whether  or  not  she  is  re- 
lated to  Em- 
press Eliza- 
beth.—Editor. 


By  birthright,  Elissa  is  a  Princess — 

and  looks  and  acts  the  part,  without 

trying 


It's    easy    to    see     whose     grand- 
daughter    Elissa     is!      Note     her 
resemblance  to  the   late  Empres 
Elizabeth   of  Austria,  above 


leaves  me  strangely  unmoved. 
Nor  am  I  worried  or  impressed 
by  the  controversy  concerning 
my  mother's  relationship  to  the 
Empress  Elizabeth.  I  know  the 
truth. 

"But  even  though  I've  been 
given  proof,  I  shouldn't  have 
spoken  about  the  matter  if 
there  hadn't  been  an  unwar- 
ranted and  totally  unexplain- 
able  attack  on  my  mother  and 
myself  by  an  utter  stranger,  an 
American  woman  who  married 
a  prince.  We  simply  can't  figure 
out  why  she  should  have  written 
that  article  about  us.  We 
couldn't  have  offended  her.  We 
don't  know  her  from  Adam! 

"If  she  thought  she  would 
hurt  me  through  this  attack, 
she   is    doomed    to    disappoint-

num.    Even  it"  her  statements  had  been 

true,  I  should  not  have  been  injured, 
tor  1  live  in  the  present  and  look  to  the 
future,  not  to  the  past.  1  suppose  I'll 
never  discover  her  motive.  Human 
beings  do  strange  things  at  times. 

How  Elissa  Resembles  Elizabeth 

BUT  alter  a  moment  of  thought, 
Elissa  added  compassionately. '"Per- 
haps she  needed  the  money,  and  in 
similar  circumstances  I  might  have 
done  the  same  thing."  So  like  Elissa! 
For  while  she  detests  crowds  of  all 
descriptions,  she  harbors  great  under- 
standing and  compassion  for  human- 
ity. Which  is  only  one  of  the  many 
traits  she  has  in  common  with  her 
grandmother,  the  Empress  Elizabeth 
of  Austria. 

Trulv  remarkable  is  the  resemblance 
between    Elizabeth    and    Elissa,    who, 
by   the   way,   was 
christened     Eliza- 
beth and,  when   a 
child,   shortened 
her  name  to  Elissa. 
Photographs  of 
Elissa   and   the 
Empress   reveal    a 
striking   physical 
likeness.  Elizabeth 
did,    and    Elissa 
does,  fervently  be- 
lieve in  aristocracy 
— Elizabeth  in  the 
aristocracy   of 
blood,     Elissa     in 
the   aristocracy  of 
brains.  They  tally 
in  everythi.ig.  from 
their    subtle    arro- 
gance and  beauty 
to  the  reddish  gold 
of    their     glorious 
hair.   The  Empress 
Elizabeth  was  pro- 
foundly intelli- 
gent,   a    world-re- 
nowned  Greek 
scholar,  a  lover  of 
the  music  of  Wag- 
ner, and  an  expert 
horsewoman.      At 
theage  of  six  Elissa 
actually  confound- 
ed priests   by   her 
theological   ques- 
tions, at  the  age  of 
ten  she  was  an  ac- 
complished  Greek 
scholar,  an  expert 
horsewoman,    and 
Wagner    was    one 
of  her  gods. 

Improbable,  you 
say,  in  a  child  so 
young?  Perhaps, 
but  only  until  you 
know  the  electric,

Clark  Gable 

destined  to  be  even 
greater  lover,  his 

Handwriting  reveals 


Louise  Rice,  famous  graphologist,  here  tells  you  more 
about  Clark  Gable  from  his  handwriting  than  you  ever 
knew  from  just  seeing  him  on  the  screen.  Did  you  know, 
for  instance,  that  he  has  not  yet  really  found  himself — 
and  that  his  love  nature  is  now  subdued,  but  in  time  will 
become  intense?

ws 


By  Louise  rice 


'111.  \  I  tirst  received  the  letter  from 
Clark   Gable   which    you   see    repro- 
duced   herewith,    I    almost    thought 
that  he  was  playing  a  joke  on  me  and 
that  two  people  had  written  it  instead  of  one.    For 
the   little   curled  "i"  dot   in    his   handwriting  shows 
that  he  has  a  good  sense  of  humor  and  enjoys  a  joke, 
either  on  himsell  or  on  someone  else. 

Look  closely  at  the  reproduction  of  his  letter  to  me 
and  notice  the  words  '"much,"  "your,"'  "of  my  hand- 
writing" and  then  compare  them  with  the  other  words  in 
this  iii. re.    See  how  different  these  words  are  from  the  r<  st 
of  the  words  in  his  letter  -  these  are  closely  spaced  and 
somewhat  angular  and  much  tinner  in  pressure,  while  the 
others  are  widely  spread  in  the  spacing  of  the  small  letters, 
nmre  rounded,  and  with  a  less  even  basic  line. 

I"  those  ot  you  who  do  not  know  Graphology,  this  will 
not  tell  very  much  about  this  interesting  personality.  To 
me,  it  shows  that  Clark  Gable  has  practically  two  per- 
;liries  one,  the  laughing,  magnetic  man  who  sets  all 
feminine  hearts  aflame  when  he  appears  on  the  screen, 
whether  he  is  lighting  or  making  love;  the  other  the  men- 
tal, reasoning  type  which  very  few  of  Ins  friends  know 
much   about,   except    the   few    to  whom   he  shows   his   real 

sell,  his  everyday  self. 
If  you    will    look    at 


There  were  only  nineteen 
words  in  the  note  that 
Clark  Gable  penned  Louise 
Kin-  hut  they  told  her  his 
lite  story 


his  tightly  closed  capital  "D"  in  the  word  "Dear,"  it  will 
show  you  th. ii  there  is  reserve  in  his  nature  and  a  certain 
secrecy  about  his  intimate  thoughts  and  feelings,  in  spite 
ol  his  ability  to  he  talkative  and  friendly  when  he  chooses.

Hollywood  Gives  Its  Slant 

on  Jackie  Cooper 


Isn't  he  the 
young  man- 
about-tovvn, 
though,  when 
he  goes  to  a 
Hollywood 
opening?  He'll 
soon  be  going 
to  see  himself 
in   "Limpy" 


Wide  World 


He's  only  eight  years  old — but  he's  a  full-fledged  star,  with  a 
weekly  salary  running  up  into  the  thousands,  and  gets  as  much 
fan  mail  as  Clark  Gable.  So  far  as  the  public  is  concerned,  he 
hits  the  bull  s-eye.  But  what  of  Hollywood — what  is  the  ver- 
dict of  the  people  closely  associated  with  him?  To  them,  is  he  a 
great  actor  or  merely  a  precocious  child?  Do  they  think  he's  a 
typical    boy — or   that   he  s   spoiled?      Here  s   what   they   say, 

confidentially! 


J 


COMPILED  BY  DOROTHY  MANNERS 


ACK  OAKIE:     "Cooper?    He  slays  me.    I'm  tellin'  you,  the 

kid  kills  me!    He  works  from  the  ticker,  if  you  know  what  I 

mean — he's  got  the  old   heart-beat    in    everything  he   does. 

He  tore  me  to  pieces  in  'The  Champ'  and  I  went  back  twice 

tor  more.    When  he  sticks  out  that  underlip  of  his,  he  just  wraps 

me  up  and  puts  me  away.   There's  something  about  a  protruding 

underlip  that  just  naturally  seems  to  go  with   'It.'      Maurice 

Chevalier's  got  it,  so  has  Doug  Fairbanks.     Cooper?    Say,  he's 

my  favorite  actor  of  the  bunch!" 

0.  0.  Mclntyre  (quoted  from  his  syndicated  column):  "I'm 
growing  just  a  little  tired  of  going  to  the  movies  and  listening  to 
the  loud  bawling  over  Jackie  Cooper." 

Richard  Dix:  "He's  the  greatest  actor  on  the  screen.  He's  so 
darned  great  that  no  other  actor  can  hold  his  own  against 
him.  I  know.  I  tried.  Off  the  screen,  he's  just  a  normal 
little  boy.  On  the  screen,  he's  the  best  little  scene-stealer 
in  the  business." 

Sally  Eilers:  "I  know  Jackie  only  from  his  work  on  the 
screen,  so  I  can't  say  whether  or  not  his  great  success  has 
spoiled  him.  But  surely  he  can't  be  the  happy,  normal 
sort  of  little  boy  he  would  have  been  if  Hollywood  hadn't 
happened  to  him.  Somehow  it  just  doesn't  seem  to  be  in 
the  cards.  When  grown  people  can't  stand  it,  how  in  the 
world  can  we  expect  a  youngster  to  do  so?  If  he  can  suc- 
cessfullv  stand  the  pace  of  having  thousands  of  his  pictures 
taken  and  published,  and  of  having  his  opinions  quoted  to 
the  world,  and  all  the  other  flattery  of  movie  stardom, 
without  even  being  a  little  changed  by  it — he's  one  kid  in 
a  million.    But  perhaps  he  is!" 

Wally  Gives  the  Low-Down 

WALLACE  BEERY:  "Don't  let  anybody  tell  you 
Jackie  is  a  genius,  or  any  other  kind  of  a  freak.  He's 
just  a  great  little  boy  who  personifies  all  the  little  boys  in 
the  world  and  he  can  get  it  over.  If  Jackie  were  a  genius,  he  would  have  done 
that  last  great  crying  scene  in  'The  Champ'  from  within — without  quite 
knowing  how  or  why  he  did  it.  But  Jackie  knew  why  he  did  that  scene:  we 
told  him  'Red'  Golden,  his  idol  and  assistant  director  on  the  film,  had  been 
fired!  It  was  a  dirtv  trick  to  play  oh  the  kid  because  we  knew  he'd  take  it 
hard.  He  took  it  just  as  any  other  normal  kid  would  take  the  news  of  a  lost 
pal — and  that's  what  you  saw  on  the  screen.  That  alone  should  prove  that 
Jackie  isn't  any  spoiled  child  prodigy.  He's  just  a  healthy,  normal  little 
boy  who  happens  to  be  a  born  actor."

using  an  olive  and  palm  oil  soap. 
Palmolive  is  the  only  large-selling 
soap  made  of  these  oils.

Neither  a  great  amount  of  time  nor  large

Two  minutes.  That's  all  it  takes.  A  sim-

toward  keeping  that  schoolgirl  complexion?

RICARDO  CORTEZ— Hollywood's  man  without 
a  country — has  at  last  ended  the  mystery  about 
himself.  Everyone  knew  that  Ricardo  Cortez 
<.  was  not  his  real  name.  But  no  one  knew  any- 
thing more  about  him,  except  that  he  was  one  of  the  best 
picture-stealers  in  the  business.  His  true  name,  his  na- 
tionality, his  birthplace — all  were  matters  of  conjecture. 
But  here  is  the  story  of  what  this  excellent  actor  has  suf- 
fered all  these  years  by  his  unintentional  masquerade — 
and  how  he  has  gladly  revealed  his  real  story: 

What  is  known  in  the  jargon  of  the  movies  as  "a  fat 
part"  awaited  somebody  at  RKO  recently.  Studio  officials 
talked  it  over.  In  their  respective  opinions,  there  was  onlv 
one  man  to  play  it — Ricardo  Cortez.    But  would  he? 

The  role  under  discussion  was  that  of  the  young  Jewish 
doctor  in  Fannie  Hurst's  new  story,  "Symphony  of  Six 
Million."  A  great  acting  part,  this  doctor — but  would 
Cortez,  whose  Latin  name  was  known  to  be  assumed, 
whose  background  and  ancestry  had  been  invented  to  fit 
that  name,  whose  very  life  had  been  altered  by  the  mas- 
querade— would  Cortez  play  a  Jew? 

Someone  finally  had  the  good  sense  to  ask  him.  The 
question  was  put  bluntly,  "Would  you  consider  plaving  a 
ew? 

"Certainly.   Why  shouldn't  I?  /  am  a  Jew."  There  was 


Ricardo  Cortez 

Reveals  Who 

He  Really   Isl 

Nearly  everyone  knows  that  he  is  not 
Spanish/  and  that  he  was  not  born 
Ricardo  Cortez.  But  who  is  he  and 
where  did  he  come  from?  It  is  time 
the  truth  was  told,  he  says  —  after 
being  a  man  without  a  country  for 
almost  ten  years  I

pride  in  the  simplicity  of  Ricardo  Cortez'  answer 
— the  pride  of  his  race,  a  race  that  has  survived 
thousands  of  years  of  oppression  and  suffering. 
But  Hollywood  was  aghast  when  it  heard  the 
story.  Hollywood  is  always  aghast  at  honesty — 
at  any  gesture  that  throws  aside  sham  and  pre- 
tense. 

Of  course,  Hollywood  has  long  accepted  as  a 
fact  the  assumption  that  Ricardo  Cortez  enjoyed  the 
real-life  role  he  had  assumed.  Some  even  believed  he  was 
ashamed  of  his  real  ancestry  and  preferred  to  pose  as  the 
romantic  figure  his  false  biography  made  of  him.  No  one 
publicly  challenged  Cortez,  however.  Remember,  this  is 
Hollywood,  where  to  express  disbelief  of  any  man's  story 
only  invites  disbelief  of  your  own. 

Rumors  About  His  Real  Name 

THERE  have  been  rumors,  naturally.  There  are  al- 
ways rumors  in  the  film  fraternity.  It  was  said  that 
Cortez'  real  name  was|  Jack  Kranz,  Jake  Kranzmeyer, 
even  Abie  Katz.  Any  number  of  yarns  flew  the  rounds 
concerning  his  early  life.  Some  of  these  tales  were  un- 
pleasant in  their  implications.  Perhaps  you,  too,  have 
heard  a  few  of  them. 

Put  yourself  in  this  man's  shoes.  It  is  commonly  known 
that  your  name  is  fictitious.  There  are  all  sorts  of  wild 
tales  about  your  real  history.  What  are  you  to  do?  Ob- 
viously, you  can't  climb  to  some  housetop  to  shout, "They're 
all  lies."  You  can't  go  around  belligerently,  saying  to 
everyone  you  meet,  "I  know  what  you're  thinking  of  me. 
You  believe  I'm  trying  to  delude  you,  to  make  a  fool  of 
you  with  this  fanciful  tale  of  Latin  romance.  It's  a  lie."

than  Colgate's.  So — I  would  just 
like  to  know  why  I  should  pay 
more  than  25  cents  for  tooth- 
paste ?  That's  all  I  have  to  pay 
for  Colgate's!

Ricardo  Cortez  Reveals  Who  He  Really  Is! 


{Continued  from  page  5<5) 


You  couldn't  follow  such  courses  of  pro- 
cedure. Neither  could  Ricardo  Cortez.  You 
would  have  to  wait  until  somebody  asked 
you.  And  therein  rests  the  only  reason  why 
Cortez  hasn't  told  the  facts  of  his  case  until 
now.    No  one  ever  asked  him. 

Even  those  who  are  his  close  personal 
friends  have  been  strangely  reticent  in  dis- 
cussing the  Cortez  myth.  They  have  avoided 
it  as  something  tabu.  Others  have  pre- 
ferred to  remain  merely  acquaintances  be- 
cause they  believed  the  man  to  be  living  a 
lie  ot  his  own  invention  and  despised  him 
for  it.  Ric  knows  his  legend  has  cost  him 
many  friendships.  He  is  not  popular  as 
popularity  is  rated  in  Hollywood.  People 
dislike  him  without  ever  having  met  linn. 
As  a  consequence,  he  lives  a  quiet  life  in 
■  comparative  retirement. 

As  neither  friend  nor  foe  confronted  him 
with  a  direct  question,  what  was  there  for 
him  to  say?  All  the  talking  has  been  done 
behind  his  back,  never  to  his  face.  1  tell 
you,  no  one  ever  asked  him. 

"Tired  of  the  Sham" 
"T   OFTEN    wished    someone    had,"    Ric 

1  says.  "I  am  as  tired  as  anyone  of  the 
sham.  For  nearly  ten  years,  I  have  been  a 
man  without  a  country — without  a  race — 
without  a  history.  My  birthplace  has  been 
variously  reported  as  Vienna,  Madrid,  Rio 
de  Janeiro  and  heaven  knows  where  else. 
Stories  of  my  life  have  been  so  contradic- 
tory, even  I  am  confused.  I  am  Cortez,  the 
First,  without  parentage,  background  or 
history,  other  than  what  has  been  given  me 
by  the  imaginative  inventions  of  press- 
agents.  I  have  been  a  character  of  pure 
fiction,  manufactured  out  of  whole  cloth. 
No  one  has  known  who  I  really  am  and 
where  I  came  from.  It  is  time  the  truth  was 
told. 

"I  know  people  have  believed  that  I  want 
to  continue  the  masquerade — that  I  am 
ashamed  to  admit  what  is  true.  I  neither 
desire  to  continue  the  fiction  nor  have  I 
anything  of  which  to  be  ashamed.  I  am 
proud  of  my  ancestry.  I  revere  my  mother 
and  the  memory  of  my  father.  I  honor  the 
blood  of  the  Jewish  race  that  flows  in  my 
veins.    I  want  my  birthright." 

Another  Jacob  sold  his  lor  a  mess  of  pot- 
tage, you  remember! 

"My  name  was  Jacob  Kranz.  It  was 
legally  changed  to  Ricardo  Cortez  when  I 
entered  pictures.  But  it  was  Jacob  Kranz 
when  I  was  born  in  Hester  Street,  on  the 
East  Side  of  New  York  City.  My  father 
was  from  Hungary,  my  mother  from  Aus- 
tria. It  is  from  my  mother's  side  that  I  get 
my  Jewish  blood.  My  father  was  as  blonde 
as  I  am  dark." 

The  fictional  stories  of  Cortez  have  al- 
ways painted  him  as  a  dramatic  figure, 
raised  in  luxury.  There  have  even  been 
hints  of  royalty  in  his  lineage.  Be  that  as  it 
may,  there  is  more  drama  in  the  true  story. 
There  isn't  a  more  dramatic  spot  on  the 
globe  than  New  York's  turbulent  East  Side 
— "the  melting  pot  of  races." 

It  was  there  that  young  Jacob  Kranz  was 
raised.  He  went  to  school  and  worked 
after  school  was  out.  He  sold  newspapers 
and  performed  all  the  other  tasks  boys  of 
his  class  generally  do.  Between  times  he 
helped  his  father  in  the  Kranz  clothing  store. 
When  the  boy  was  sixteen,  his  lather's  death 
made  him  the  head  of  the  family. 

"Ever  since  I  can  remember,  I  wanted  to 
be  an  actor,"  he  says.  "When  the  oppor- 
tunity came  my  way,  I  became  a  super  at 
twelve  dollars  a  week.  1  had  no  lines  to 
speak — was  merely  given  a  Hag  to  carry 
across  the  stage.  It  was  a  French  flag  and  I 
won  the  job  because  I  looked  French. 

"A  short  time  later,  a  friend  gave  me  a 


letter  of  introduction  to  Marshall  Neilan, 
the  screen  director.  He  talked  to  me  at 
length  and  gave  me  a  part  in  a  Marguerite 
Clark  picture.  I  went  home  trembling  with 
my  joyous  news — to  find  my  father  critically 
ill.  He  died  in  three  days.  Three  weeks 
later,  my  sister  died.  I  never  played  the 
role. 

"It  was  many  months  before  I  again 
thought  of  acting;  I  resolved  to  gamble 
everything  on  the  lone  chance  of  making 
good  in  Hollywood.  Armed  with  a  letter  to 
Jesse  Lasky,  I  left  New  York." 

Lasky  received  the  applicant  with  cour- 
tesy, but  held  forth  no  hopes.  Other  pro- 
ducers were  sought  out  with  a  similar  lack 
of  success.  It  looked  like  the  career  of  Jack 
Kranz,  actor,  was  to  be  of  short  duration. 
One  night,  a  very  unhappy  young  man  ac- 
cepted the  invitation  of  some  friends  to  join 
them  on  a  party  at  the  Cocoanut  Grove.  A 
dancing  contest  was  a  feature  of  the  evening. 
One  of  the  young  ladies  in  Kranz's  party 
wanted  to  enter  and  he  became  her  partner. 
They  won.  The  following  day,  Lasky  sent 
for  him. 

"My  wife  saw  you  dancing  at  the  Grove 
last  night,"  he  said.  "She  believes  that 
you  have  a  future  on  the  screen." 

Apparently  Lasky  was  willing  to  back  his 
wife's  judgment.  He  talked  contract.  The 
question  of  salary  arose.  "How  does  $75  a 
week  sound  to  you?"  Lasky  asked. 

"You  know  best  what  I  am  worth.  I  will 
abide  by  any  decision  you  make,"  was  the 
reply.  The  boy  tried  not  to  show  that  the 
sum  mentioned  seemed  like  a  fortune. 

"That's  the  spirit,"  Lasky  applauded. 
"We'll  make  it  a  hundred."  Upon  five  dif- 
ferent occasions  after  that,  Lasky  volunta- 
rily tore  up  an  existing  contract  and  wrote  a 
new  one.  It  was  not  long  before  the  weekly 
pay  check  read  81250.  Jack  Kranz  entered 
pictures  during  the  era  of  Latin  love.  Ru- 
dolph Valentino  had  just  broken  his  con- 
tract with  Paramount  and  in  the  dark-com- 
plexioned newcomer,  the  company  believed 
it  had  a  second  Valentino. 

There  have  been  a  half-dozen  stories  con- 
cerning the  selection  of  Ricardo  Cortez  as  a 
name  for  the  new  actor  Lasky  signed.  The 
most  commonly  accepted  report  says  he  was 
named  from  two  cigar  bands.  Lasky  didn't 
like  the  name  of  Kranz.  He  suggested  a 
change  and  found  the  boy  perfectly  agree- 
able. "We'll  let  the  girls  find  you  a  name," 
Lasky  said  and  walked  to  the  outer  office 
where  sat  his  two  secretaries. 

From  many  suggestions  the  combination 
of  Ricardo  Cortez  was  evolved.  It  sounded 
romantic  and  seemed  to  fit  the  bill.  Next 
day  the  publicity  department  announced 
that  Jesse  Lasky  had  made  a  new  discovery, 
a  dashing,  dazzling,  Latin  sensation,  one 
Ricardo  Cortez. 

Living  up  to  his  name  has  caused  Ric  more 
grief  than  is  possible  to  detail  here.  Writing 
his  biography  was  a  press-agent's  holiday. 
There  were  no  facts  to  hamper  an  imagina- 
tive mind.  Any  incident  required  could  be 
invented  on  the  spur  of  a  moment. 

But  imagine  the  actor's  embarrassment 
upon  being  confronted  by  interviewers! 
"Where  were  you  born?"  they  all  began  and 
his  answer  had  to  be,  "Ask  the  publicity  de- 
partment for  my  biography."  And  when 
representatives  of  the  foreign  press  called, 
his  embarrassment  was  twofold.  Supposedly 
a  Spaniard,  he  could  not  speak  a  word  of 
Spanish! 

A  sense  of  loyalty  to  his  employers  un- 
doubtedly motivated  Ricardo  Cortez  in  the 
deception  he  practised  during  his  first  years 
on  the  screen.  1  am  willing  to  wager  that 
you  would  have  done  the  same,  had  you 
been  in  his  shoes.  Unfortunately,  by  the

Why  is  it  that  Listerine  Tooth  Paste  is  found  in  so  many 
homes  of  the  wealthy? 

Obviously  the  25^  price  could  not  appeal  to  a  woman 
who  has  her  own  box  at  the  opera.  Or  to  a  man  who  t 
his  family  annually  to  Palm  Beach. 

Listerine  Tooth  Paste  has  won  its  way  into  their  homes 
simply  on  its  merits.  By  the  quality  that  the  very  name 
Listerine  guarantees.  And  by  results  that  are  clearly 
apparent. 

If  you  have  not  tried  Listerine  Tooth  Paste  do  so  now. 
Note  how  thoroughly,  how  swiftly  it  cleans.  Contained 
in  it  are  ultra-modern  cleansing  agents.  Dissolved  in  saliva 
they  reach  every  surface  of  the  tooth.  Even  penetrating 
between  teeth — removing  tartar,  decay,  discolorations, 
and  stains. 

Note  the  wonderful  brilliance  and  luster  that  Listerine 
Tooth  Paste  imparts  to  your  teeth.  Special  polishing 
agents,  superfine  in  texture,  produce  this  effect.  Yet  never

once  do  they  mar  precious  enamel. 

Note,  t( »  p,  the  pleasant  taste  and  refreshing 
feeling  and  mouth  invigoration  that  follows 
the  use  of  Listerine  Tooth  Paste.  That  de- 
lightful, clean  feeling  that  you  associate  with 
Listerine  i: 

When  we  created  Listerine  Tooth  Paste,  it 
was  with  the  pledge  to  ourselves  that  it  would 
be  exceptional  in  quality.  That  it  would  be 
equal  if  not  superior  to  dentifrices  co 
much  more.  We  have  made  no  claims  for  11 
except  that  it  will  cleanse  teeth  swiftly, 
oughly,  and  safely. 

More  than  four  million  people  who  could

frice serves  them  best.  Please  try  it.  Y

How  Do 

Sportswomen 

Manage? 

Cup  winners  can't  be  quitters — what- 
ever the  time  of  month.  The  woman  who 
competes  for  honors  in  any  field  of  sport 
must  take  her  sporting  chance  with 
Nature.  Any  strenuous  match  may  sud- 
denly bring  on  her  sickness.  A  busy  season 
of  practice  and  play  makes  no  allowance 
for  discomfort  or  pain  of  menstruation. 
Midol  will  meet  this  emergency  ■ —  as 
many  active  women  know.  Midol  tablets 
have  emancipated  women  from  the  dread 
of  regular  pain — from  the  need  of  giving 
in  to  such  suffering — from  suffering  at  all. 

Do  you  realize  that  a  woman  who  takes 
Midol  just  before  her  time  to  suffer  will 
menstruate  without  one  twinge  of  pain? 
That  even  though  the  pains  have  caught 
her  unawares,  Midol  will  stop  them  with- 
in seven  minutes?  And  that  Midol  is  as 
harmless  as  the  aspirin  you  take  for  a 
headache? 

No  matter  how  hard  a  time  you  have 
always  had,  Midol  carries  you  through 
your  monthly  periods  in  perfect  comfort. 
Don't  stand  in  the  dark.  Don't  doubt  a 
discovery  which  has  been  verified  by  the 
medical  profession  and  proven  to  the 
satisfaction  of  more  than  a  million  women. 
Your  druggist  has  these  tablets  in  a  slim 
little  box  that  fits  the  smallest  purse  or 
pocket.  Just  ask  for  Midol. 


Hollywood  Gives  Its  Slant 
on  Jackie  Cooper 


(Continued  from  page  3 

Jackie  Coogan  will  always  be  the  'child 
genius'  of  all  time — but  little  Jackie  Cooper 
is  a  wonderful  actor.  His  great  appeal,  f 
believe,  lies  in  the  fact  that  he  does  not  im- 
press people  as  a  child  artist.  He  is  just  a 
regular  little  boy." 

Tallulah  Bankhead:  "Haven't  you  heard 
about  Jackie  and  me?  He's  my  beau.  At  a 
dinner  party  given  by  Joan  Crawford  and 
Doug,  Jr.,  he  was  my  dinner  partner.  We 
got  along  great — both  of  us  ate  fried  chicken 
with  our  fingers.  My  boy-friend  was  going 
good  until  about  ten  o'clock,  when  he  began 
to  get  sleepy.  He's  the  first  beau  1  ever  had 
who  'faded'  on  me  that  soon."

Gives  Credit  to  Mrs.  Cooper 

DOUGLAS  FAIRBANKS,  JR.:  "ft 
isn't  a  lot  of  fun  to  be  a  kid  actor — I 
know  from  experience.  It  isn't  a  normal, 
particularly  happy  life  for  a  boy.  But  I 
think  Jackie  Cooper  comes  the  closest  to 
living  a  regular  he-boy  life  with  a  kid's  nor- 
mal outlook  of  any  screen  youngster  I've 
ever  met.  A  great  deal  of  the  credit  for  this 
belongs  to  Mabel  Cooper,  Jackie's  mother. 
She  never  permits  him  to  be  smarty  or 
show-off  with  grown  people.  Another  thing, 
she  doesn't  make  the  mistake  of  'supervising' 
his  every  movement.  When  Jackie  plays 
with  the  kids  in  his  neighborhood,  he's  just 
one  kid  among  many  on  the  football  team. 
Mabel  isn't  scared  to  death  he  is  going  to 
hurt  himself — as  most  movie  mamas  are." 

Billie  Dove:  "There's  no  one  on  the  screen 
like  him.  To  me  he's  more  thrilling  than 
Clark  Gable,  Robert  Montgomery  and  all 
the  other  fascinating  actors  of  the  moment. 
If  I  were  a  little  girl,  I'd  like  awfully  much 
to  be  Jackie's  best  girl-friend." 

Mayme  Ober  Peake  (columnist  and 
writer):  "Jackie  invited  me  to  go  to  the 
movies  with  him  one  night.  When  we  got 
to  the  box-office,  he  asked  solemnly,  'Who 
is  going  to  pay  for  the  tickets?'  I  told  him  I 
was.  'Well,'  he  said,  very  seriously,  'please 
don't  get  the  expensive  seats.'  I  thought  he 
was  trying  to  save  me  money  and  assured 
him  that  I  could  really  afford  the  loges. 
'Yes,  ma'am,'  he  agreed,  'but  I  can't  see 
that  far  back.  Pardon  me — but  I  guess  I'm 
too  short.' 

Mitzi  Green:  "It  isn't  true  that  Jackie 
Cooper  and  myself  are  'engaged.'  We  are 
just  good  friends." 

Erie  von  Strolieim:  "As  a  rule,  I  do  not  like 
child  actors.  They  bore  me  beyond  words. 
But  years  have  nothing  to  do  with  the  talent 
of  Jackie  Cooper.  He  is  a  great  actor.  He 
has  a  great  natural  talent  that  comes  along 
for  the  movies  just  once  in  a  great  while. 
Many  actors  a  great  deal  older  than  Jackie 
could  take  tips  on  technique  from  him." 


Hollywood  Newspaper  Woman:  "Once  I 
was  talking  to  Jackie  and  it  seemed  to  me 
he  gave  me  a  rather  flippant  answer  to  a 
question.  Several  people  standing  around 
who  overheard  immediately  started  to  say 
that  Jackie  was  beginning  to  be  spoiled  by 
his  attention  and  flattery.  But  there  is  a 
little  boy  who  lives  next-door  to  me — a 
child  who  hasn't  had  Jackie's  success  and 
fame — who  can  get  equally  fresh  upon  occa- 
sion. If  Jackie  were  painfully  polite  all  the 
time,  he  just  wouldn't  be  an  American  boy. 
If  he  were  constantly  watching  his  'man- 
ners,' he  would  be  more  of  an  unnatural 
youngster  than  he  could  ever  be  by  'talking 
up'  once  in  awhile.  How  many  non-profes- 
sional children  do  you  know  who  are  'little 
gentlemen'  all  the  time?" 

Clara  Bow:  "Over  a  period  of  years  there 
have  been  many  candidates  for  'It' — but  if 
anybody  else  is  ever  going  to  fall  heir  to  that 
title  I  hope  it's  Jackie  Cooper.  He  has  'It.'  " 

Loitella  Parsons  (movie  columnist  for 
Hearst  papers):  "This  child's  tremendous 
success  is  a  boon  to  Hollywood  movie  pro- 
ductions. His  popularity  is  proof  that  the 
public  was  growing  very  weary  of  smutty, 
suggestive  pictures.  Let's  hope  the  pro- 
ducers take  a  tip  from  it." 

Advice  to  Ambitious  Mothers 

BEN  TIIA  U  (casting  director  at  M-G-M, 
Jackie's  home  studio):  "If  only  all  the 
other  movie  mamas  in  the  world  would  real- 
ize that  their  offspring  weren't  Jackie  Coop- 
ers! One  of  the  real  tragedies  of  any  kid's 
success  on  the  screen  is  the  flock  of  ambi- 
tious mothers  he  attracts  to  the  casting  of- 
fices of  the  studios.  Jackie  is  one  in  a  million 
— but  try  to  make  other  kid  geniuses'  moth- 
ers realize  this!  They  bring  in  these  poor 
little  kids  with  their  hair  artificially  curled 
and  their  lips  painted  and  rouged  and  insist 
they  are  great  artists  like  Jackie  Cooper. 
Most  of  these  children  are  old  before  they 
ever  have  a  chance  to  be  young — victims  of 
maternal  ambition.  All  I  can  say  to  the 
movie-greedy  mothers  all  over  the  country 
is:  Don't  bring  your  young  genius  to  Holly- 
wood.  Jackie  Cooper  is  one  in  ten  million!" 

James  Cagney:  "Kid  Cooper  sat  in  front 
of  me  at  a  Hollywood  premiere  the  other 
night.  I  got  a  bigger  kick  out  of  seeing  him 
in  person  than  I  would  have  if  Garbo  had 
come  in  and  sat  down  beside  me.  Coop's 
got  personality  even  in  the  back  of  his  neck. 
Once  during  the  show  he  turned  around  in 
his  seat  and  smiled  at  me!  That's  the  nicest 
compliment  I've  had  since  I've  been  in 
Hollywood." 

And  believe  it  or  not — but  even  Garbo 
was  seen  to  wave  to  Jackie  one  morning  from 
her  dressing-room! 


Ricardo  Cortez  Reveals  Who  He  Really  Is! 


(Continued  fr 

time  he  left  Paramount  and  the  necessity  for 
his  continuing  the  masquerade  vanished, 
people  had  ceased  to  ask  him  about  himself. 
Acquaintances  were  alienated  by  the  hoax. 
Even  his  friends  avoided  the  subject,  be- 
lieving him  to  be  satisfied  with  things  as 
they  were. 

When  Ric  returned  to  pictures  after  two 
years  of  voluntary  exile  while  he  nursed  his 
beloved  wife,  Alma  Rubens,  he  achieved  an 
immediate  screen  popularity  that  far  over- 
shadowed his  former  success  in  silent  films. 
1  [e  again  became  copy  for  the  press,  but  the 
Cortez  fable  was  so  well-established  that 
either  out  of  courtesy  to  the  man  or  because 
it  was  no  longer  news,   inquiring  reporters 


■oin  page  58 ) 

did  not  inquire.  Had  they  but  known  it,  a 
real  story  was  trembling  on  the  tip  of  his 
tongue — waiting,  just  waiting,  for  someone 
to  ask. 

Then,  after  nearly  ten  years,  a  chap, 
braver  than  his  fellows,  broached  the  tabued 
topic  with  the  question,  "Will  you  play  a 
Jew?" 

And  the  simple,  dignified  reply,  "Cer- 
tainly.   /  am  a  Jew." 

A  man  without  a  country  asserted  him- 
self. Gone  was  the  great  impersonation — 
gone  all  pretense  and  the  necessity  ol  loy- 
alty in  silence.  A  man  stood  revealed,  de- 
manding his  birthright.  At  last — someone 
had  asked  him!

convinced  them.  But  read  about 
this  test. ..and  its  thrilling  results 

\\  lun  leading  dern  in  fourteen  large 

American  cities  opened  the  Nation-wide  Beauty 
Clinic,  they  lounel  that  many  women  were  not 
anxious  to  entrust  their  delicate  complexions 
to  any  soap,  no  matter  how  tine. 

?4  ol  the  612  women  who  took  part  in  the  Clinic 
said,  very  .  at  first,  "  I  cannot  use  soap 

on  my  skin.  It  is  too  dry  and  sensitive." 

"  ^  es,  '  the  dermatologists  agreed,  "your  skin 
IS   dry.    It    IS   sensitive.    Certainly  you  could 
not  use  a  strong  or  harsh  soap.    Hut  .  . 
skin,  except  a  few  that  are  really  sick, 
fine  soap.  Its  use  will  improve  the  tone  of  your 
skin  and  so  correct  that  abnormal  sensitiveness." 

So  these  54  women,  along  with  558  others,  took 
part  in  the  dermatologists'  "Half-face  Test." 
For  50  consecutive  days,  each  woman  went  on 
cleansing  the  left  side  ot  her  face  with  her  usual 
soap,  cream  or  lotion.  On  the  right  side,  she 
used  Woodbury's  Facial  Soap. 

Clinical  skin  examinations  made  at  the  end  ol 
the  test  revealed,  conclusively,  the  superior 
action  of  Woodbury's.  In  79'  of  the  cases,  the 
Woodbury  side  ol  the  face  showed  a  marked 
improvement  over  the  side  treated  with  other, 
and  more  expensive,  preparations.  I  ven  nor- 
mally good  skins  were  clearer,  liner,  firmer, 
when  cared  for  with  Woodbury's. 

\\  ith  this  prool  before  you  of  what  Woodbury's 
can  do,  surely  you  want  to  try  it  em  YOUR 
skin.  A  "skin  you  love  to  touch"  is  "  .i  jewel

'Old  Town  Boats  " 


Arsene  Lupin 

For  their  first  co-starring  picture,  you'll  probably 
be  surprised  to  see  John  and  Lionel  Barrymore  in  a 
semi-comic  detective  melodrama.  John  is  the  smooth 
crook,  Lionel  the  smooth  detective.    (M-G-MJ 

The  Beast  of  the  City 

The  title  applies  to  Jean  Hersholt,  chief  of  gang- 
land, upon  whom  Walter  Huston,  chief  of  police, 
declares  a  highly  disastrous  war,  carrying  a  heavy 
moral.    (M-G-M) 

Behind  the  Mask 

Lurid     melodrama    about     dope     smugglers    and  - 
Federal  narcotic  agents,  with  Jack  Holt  one  of  the 
latter  and   Boris   Karloff  one  of  the  former.     Built 
along  the  lines  of  a  serial.    (Col.) 

Business  and  Pleasure 

Based  on  Booth  Tarkington's  novel,  "The  Pluto- 
cr.it,"  this  reveals  Will  Rogers  as  a  razor-blade 
magnate  on  a  visit  to  Turkey  and  the  bearded  sheiks. 
Artificial  and  jerky,  with  the  humor  forced.     (Fox) 

Cheaters  at  Play 

When  ex-crooks  meet  an  ex-police  chief,  what 
happens  ?  Thomas  Meighan  and  William  Bakewell 
run  up  against  James  Kirkwood  on  board  a  ship— 
and  show  you,  entertainingly  enough.   (Fox) 

Cock  of  the  Air 

Gay  nonsense  about  an  actress  who  almost  stopped 
the  World  War,  and  an  American  aviator  who  set 
out  to  tame  her — with  Billie  Dove  and  Chester 
Morris  clowning  as  they  never  have  before.    (U.  A.) 

The  Expert 

Though  starring  Chic  Sale,  don't  think  the  story 
is  based  on  "The  Specialist.''  Chic  turns  in  a  great 
characterization  as  the  tottering  war-horse  of  Edna 
Ferber's  tale,  "Old  Man  Minick."   (W.  B.) 

The  Final  Edition 

The  year's  first  newspaper  play,  but  hardly  the 
last — giving  you  still  another  slant  on  the  life  of  a 
newspaper  man  (Pat  O'Brien).  More  melodramatic 
than  realistic.    (Col.) 

Fireman,  Save  My  Child 

The  screen's  most  wholehearted  clown — Joe  E. 
Brown — has  a  good  time  pretending  to  be  a  Don 
Juan  in  a  red  shirt.  It's  silly,  but  the  fun  is  con- 
tagious.   (F.  N.) 

Freaks 

Do  the  misshapen  beings  of  the  circus  sideshows 
also  have  emotions  ?  If  you  have  the  strength  to  see 
what  happens  to  a  trapeze  artiste  (Baclanova)  when 
:-he  betrays  one  of  them,  you'll  say.  "Yes "— and  shiv- 
er. L'nusual  and  sensational — and  horrifying. 
(M-G-M) 

The  Gay  Caballero 

Victor  McLaglen  plays  Robin  Hood  in  the  wild, 
wild  West,  with  George  O'Brien  for  a  pal — and  there's 
plenty  of  hard  ridin'  and  fightin'  and  lovin'.  Above- 
the-average  Western.    (Fojc) 

Girl  Crazy 

One  of  Broadway's  better  musical  comedies — 
with  the  usual  plot,  but  better-than-usual  humor- 
gets  a  good  break  at  the  hands  of  Wheeler  and  Wool- 
sey,  Eddie  Quillan  and  Dorothy  Lee.    (RKO) 

Girl  of  the  Rio 

Dolores  Del  Rio  returns  to  the  screen,  after  a 
year's  absence,  as  beautiful  as  ever,  and  a  better 
actress.    The  story,  however,  is  one  of  those  typical 

Mexican-border  triangle  things.  (RKO) 

The  Greeks  Had  a  Word  for  Them 

Ina  Claire.  Madge  Evans  and  Joan  Blondell  show 
vou  all  you  need  to  know  about  gold-digging  in  New 
York.  A  wise,  witty  comedy— but  if  only  the  censors 
had  spared  their  shears!     (U.  A.) 

Hell  Divers 

Wallace  Beery  proves  again  that  he's  one  of  the 
world's  best  actors— and  submerges  Clark  Gable— 
in  this  dramatic  spectacle  of  Uncle  Sam's  naval  air 
fleet  and  the  men  who  wear  its  uniforms.    (M-G-M) 

Hell's  House 

The  title  indicates  the  reform  school  to  which 
voung  Junior  Durkin  is  sent  for  idolizing  Pat 
O'Brien,  bootlegger.  It  will  make  your  blood  boil 
about  "reform"  schools.    (Capitol) 

Hotel  Continental 

Like  "Grand  Hotel."  although  the  authors  claim 
that  their  story  was  written  earlier,  this  shows  you 
a  vivid  cross-section  of  life  by  showing  you  the  drama 
of  a  big  hotel.    Peggy  Shannon  stands  out.    (Tiffany) 

The  Impatient  Maiden 

Unable  to  marry,  a  young  hospital  interne  and  his 
office-girl  sweetheart  almost  let  life  cheat  them  of 
what  they  deserve.  Fine  acting  by  Lew  Ayres  and 
Mae  Clarke  in  a  human,  sincere  story.    (Univ.) 

Ladies  of  the  Jury 

Edna  May  Oliver  lends  her  wry  humor  (and  her 
sniff!)  to  a  whimsical  conception  of  a  court  trial  and  a 
jury's  deliberations.  Not  only  amusing,  but  differ- 
ent.   (RKO) 


Lady  With  a  Past 

Planning  for  her  future,  a  society  girl  goes  to  Paris 
to  acquire  a  "past" — and  the  result  is  not  a  heavy 
problem  drama,  but  a  clever,  sophisticated  comedy. 
Constance  Bennett  has  never  been  more  herself. 
(RKO-Pathe) 

The  Lost  Squadron 

This  picture  is  a  regular  bomb,  so  far  as  Holly- 
wood is  concerned — for  it  tells  the  inside  story  of 
how  men  have  to  risk  their  lives  to  make  air  pictures. 
Exciting  drama,  starring  Richard  Dix.    (RKO) 

Lovers  Courageous 

A  quiet,  but  affecting  little  love  story  about  a 
struggling  young  playwright  and  a  wealthy  girl  who 
gives  up  her  family  and  wealth  to  marry  him.  Made 
real  by  Robert  Montgomery  and  Madge  Evans. 
(M-G-M) 

The  Menace 

One  of  the  many  mystery  thrillers  from  the  pen  of 
the  late  Edgar  Wallace,  about  a  "dead"  man  who 
comes  back.  Blood-and-thunder  stuff,  with  H.  B. 
Warner  and  Walter  Byron.    (Col.) 

The  Passionate  Plumber 

Buster  Keaton,  plumber,  is  hired  as  Irene  Pur- 
cell's  "cardboard  lover,"  but  misunderstands  his 
assignment — with  the  sequel  hilarious,  though 
rough.  P.  S.— Jimmie  Durante  falls  for  Polly  Moran! 
(M-G-M) 

Polly  of  the  Circus 

Marion  Davies  breaks  away  from  comedy  to  make 
a  talkie  version  of  the  w.-k.  story  about  the  circus 
star  who  falls  in  love  with  a  minister  (who's  Clark  - 
Gable,    this   time).     Nothing   new,   but   well   done. 
(M-G-M) 

The  Road  to  Life 

The  first  Soviet  talkie — a  graphic  picturization  of 
what  happened  to  the  "wild  children"  that  infested 
Russia  after  the  revolution.  Unusual,  with  sub- 
titles in  English.    (Amkino) 

The  Scar 

One  known  as  "Scarface"  and  "The  Shame  of  a 
Nation,"  this  looks  like  the  last  word  in  gangland 
pictures.  Paul  Muni  adds  the  finishing  touch  to 
what  you  think  a  gangster  is  really  like.    (U.  A.) 

Service  for  Ladies 

If  you  were  sorry  to  see  Leslie  Howard  leave 
Hollywood,  you'll  be  glad  to  know  that  he's  the  star 
of  this  British-made  picture — in  the  amusing  role  of 
a  headwaiter  whom  women  can't  resist.    (Par.) 

She  Wanted  a  Millionaire 

Based,  I  suspect,  on  the  Nixon-Nirdlinger  case  of 
last  summer,  Joan  Bennett's  new  picture  shows  her 
as  a  beauty-contest  winner  who  unhappily  marries  an 
elderly  millionaire.   An  effective  moral-pointer.  (Fox) 

The  Silent  Witness 

When  Greta  Nissen  is  murdered,  and  his  son  is 
suspected,  Lionel  Atwill  takes  the  blame,  himself — 
until  "the  silent  witness"  appears  at  his  trial, 
which  is  packed  with  suspense.  You'll  like  new- 
comer Atwill.    (Fox) 

Sky  Devils 

As  the  title  would  lead  you  to  believe,  this  boasts 
some  spectacular  aviation — but  in  the  main  it's  a 
robust  comedy  about  two  green  rookies  (Bill  Boyd 
and  Spencer  Tracy),  who  bluff  their  way  into  the 
air  corps.    (U.  A.) 

The  Struggle 

D.  W.  Griffith  turns  out  a  sob-"story  about  what 
drink  can  do  to  a  poor  working-man  (Hal  Skelly), 
but  overstates  his  case.    (U.  A.) 

Taxi! 

James  Cagney  gets  a  real  kick  out  of  playing  the 
part  of  a  fighting  young  Irish  taxi-driver  who  breaks 
up  a  strike,  and  treats  you  to  a  barrage  of  wisecracks 
and  some  fast  action.    (W.  B.) 

Three  Wise  Girls 

Jean  Harlow,  Mae  Clarke  and  Marie  Prevost  ac- 
quire wisdom  in  the  big  city  in  The  Usual  Manner— 
but  the  surprise  is  that  the  figurative  Jean  is  the 
one  who  stays  unsmirched.    (Col.) 

Tomorrow  and  Tomorrow 

Ruth  Chatterton,  childless  in  her  marriage,  has 
a  son  by  another  man  (Paul  Lukas) — and  life  goes  on. 
A  poignant  triangle  story,  well  acted.    (Par.) 

Trapped  in  a  Submarine 

Half-way  between  a  short  and  a  feature-length 
picture,  this  film  reconstructs  what  happened  when 
the  British  submarine,  Poseidon,  sank.  A  real-life 
chiller.    (British  International) 

Wavward 

Like  "The  Devil's  Holiday,"  Nancy  Carroll's  new 
picture  has  her  married  to  a  chap  (Richard  Arlen) 
whose  family  try  to  wreck  the  marriage.  Not  so 
potent  as  its  predecessor,  however.    (Par.) 

A  Woman  Commands 

Pola  Negri  makes  a  big-time  comeback  in  a  comedy 
melodrama  about  a  commoner  who  marries  a  king 
and  proceeds  to  do  the  ruling.  Besides  emoting, 
the  deep-voiced  Pola  sings — very  well,  thank  you.

THOSE 

RUNS 


Preserve  the  ELASTICITY* 
that  makes  stockings  WEAR 

DO  YOU  KNOW7  what  causes  those  ruinous  runs? 

New  stockings  are  elastic — they  give  under  strain, 
stretch  and  then  spring  back  again.  When  this  pre- 
cious elasticity  is  destroyed,  the  silk  threads,  instead 
of  giving,  break  under  strain.  At  the  least  provocation  ! 
It  is  then  that  runs  start! 

That  is  why  Lux  is  made  to  preserve  the  elasticity 
that  makes  the  sheerest  stockings  really  wear. 


*Tbe  Lux  Way  to  make  stockings  last  twice  as  long 


Wash  after  EACH  wearing.  Perspira- 
tion left  in  stockings  or  underthings 
will  actually  ror  the  silk. 

Don't  rub  with  cake  soap.  It  destroys 
elasticity,  making  the  silk  lifeless,  apt 
to  break  into  runs.  With  Lux  there's 
no  rubbing.  Even  stubborn  spots  come 
out  perfectly  if  you  gently  press  in  a 
few  dry  Lux  diamonds. 

Dmi  7  use  too-warm  water — this  fades 

Color.     With  Lux   you  use'  lukewarm 
water.  No  hot  water  needed.  The  tiny 


Lux  diamonds  —  so  sheer  you  can 

actually  read  through  them  —  dissolve 
twice  as  i.ist,  even  in  water  at  wrist 
temperature ! 

Wash  this  2- minute  way: 

1  1  teaspoon  of  Lux  for  each  pair  of 

stock  ii 

2  Add    lukewarm    water    to    Lux.

Odor 

stopped  for  sure  .  .  . 
Clothes  saved! 


Armpit  glands,  because  they're  con- 
fined, perspire  abnormally— cause  odor 
repulsive  to  others  (though  seldom 
noticeable  to  oneself). 

The  one  sure,  safe  way  to  avoid  offen- 
sive odor  is  to  use  Odorono.  Odorono 
is  a  doctor's  prescription  that  prevents 
underarm  odor  and  saves  dresses  from 
ruinous  perspiration  stains. 

There  are  two  kinds  of  Odorono. 
Odorono  Regular  is  for  use  before  re- 
tiring—gives the  longest  protection 
of  any  product,  3  to  7  days.  Instant 
Odorono  is  for  quick  use,  at  any  time. 
It  gives  1  to  3  days'  protection.

Clark  Gable  Destined  to  Be  Even  Greater 
Lover,  His  Handwriting  Reveals 


(Continued  from  page  52) 


Clark  Gable  is  what  we  graphologists 
would  call  a  "late  maturer"  type  and  the 
latter  years  of  his  life  will  be  much  more 
interesting  and  satisfactory  and  productive 
of  results  than  his  past  or  his  present  exis- 
tence. For  he  is  probably  somewhat  rest- 
less and  temperamental  and  introspective 
just  now,  as  he  is  going  through  what 
our  grandmothers  used  to  call  "growing 
pains" — and  those  are  never  very  pleasant, 
either  for  the  person  suffering  from  them, 
or  to  the  people  with  whom  he  is  asso- 
ciated. 

Notice  the  sharp  downward  stroke  in  the 
words  "my"  and  "your,"  which  shows  that 
it  is  not  always  easy  for  him  to  be  patient 
with  the  petty  annoyances  and  bickerings 
and  delays  which  are  bound  to  crop  up  in 
the  making  of  a  motion  picture.  The  person 
whose  handwriting  is  large  and  flowing  like 
("lark  Gable's  will  never  be  interested  in 
small  matters,  but  in  things  that  are  con- 
structive and  progressive  and  not  too  slow 
in  development.  The  people  who  deal  with 
him  must  be  careful  not  to  push  him  too  far 
or  to  be  too  demanding,  for  he  may  rise  in 
his  wrath  and  tell  them  where  to  go  without 
any  mincing  of  his  words. 

He  can  be  very  kind  and  pleasant  and 
adaptable,  but  has  very  positive  convictions 
of  his  own  and  can  be  a  little  fussy  about 
some  things.  At  the  present  time,  however, 
he  is  sometimes  too  introspective  and  ques- 
tioning to  feel  sure  enough  of  himself  and 
his  abilities,  because  of  this  transition  period 
through  which  he  is  now  passing.  When  he 
has  developed  his  character,  as  he  is  bound 
to  do  in  the  next  few  years,  then  let  people 
beware  of  how  they  try  to  boss  him  or  force 
him  to  do  things  that  are  too  piffling!  Clear 
the  track  if  they  do.  He  will  be  on  his  way, 
contracts  or  no  contracts;  for,  while  he  likes 
money,  he  likes  freedom  more.  When  he 
meets  with  understanding  and  fairness  and 
is  allowed  a  chance  to  think  for  himself, 
however,  he  is  almost  too  emotionally  gen- 
erous and  kind  and  will  return  a  hundred- 
idld  what  he  has  received. 

What  Proves  He's  Ambitious 

HE  shows  tremendous  ambition  and 
breadth  of  vision,  as  you  will  notice  by 
the  high,  full  loops  of  his  handwriting — and 
he  is  so  alive  that  it  must  be  hard  for  him  to 
be  happy  unless  he  is  in  action.  He  has  great 
vitality  and  energy,  which  give  him  the 
magnetism  that  projects  itself  so  powerfully 
from  the  screen ;  but  he  will  need  change  and 
variety  and  plenty  of  occupation  to  keep 
from  getting  into  unpleasant  situations  that 
are  not  of  his  own  choosing. 


Because  of  his  complex  nature,  he  is 
somewhat  self -centered  and  very  much  in- 
terested in  some  things  and  careless  and  in- 
different about  others.  In  fact,  he  may  be 
called  lazy  by  people  who  do  not  understand 
this.  He  is  tremendously  versatile,  as  his 
handwriting  indicates  and  his  diversity  of 
roles  proves,  and  yet  he  is  simple  in  his 
tastes  and  almost  conservative  in  his  ideas 
and  ideals. 

He  sometimes  doubts  his  own  ability  to 
make  his  dreams  become  realities  and  is  ex- 
tremely sensitive  to  criticism,  although  he 
has  plenty  of  confidence  and  assurance  in 
anything  that  he  feels  he  thoroughly  under- 
stands. He  will  want  to  have  his  personal 
whims  and  ideas  followed  out  as  he  plans 
them  and  is  a  little  irritated  by  opposition, 
although  he  has  common  sense  and  does  not 
let  these  whims  interfere  with  his  real 
ambitions. 

Will  Be  Even  Greater  Lover 

AS  to  the  personal  side  of  his  nature, 
which  is  what  most  of  you  are  waiting 
to  hear  about:  he  has  been  so  busy  growing 
up,  as  it  were,  that  he  is  not  really  emotion- 
ally ready  for  expansion.  He  has  a  love  na- 
ture that  is  not  ardent  on  the  surface,  but 
will  become  deep  and  intense  in  the  fullness 
of  time.  There  is  no  question  that  he  can 
make  a  passionate  lover  on  the  screen,  but 
in  personal  contacts  it  is  harder  for  him  to 
be  satisfied  with  too  much  love-making  and 
sentiment. 

He  will  always  attract  interesting,  stimu- 
lating and  unusual  women  because  of  his 
mixture  of  the  boy  and  the  man — a  combi- 
nation that  appeals  to  both  the  love  nature 
and  the  mother  instinct  which  all  women 
possess.  He  will  need  love  and  companion- 
ship, but  he  will  also  need  time  to  himself 
and  can  put  his  emotions  aside  in  his  interest 
in  his  work  when  necessary.  He  belongs  to 
the  Constructive  Type — the  type  who  are 
always  able  to  keep  their  work  and  their 
love  in  separate  compartments  and  seldom 
let  the  one  interest  interfere  with  the  other, 
no  matter  what  arises. 

And  so  we  have  Clark  Gable,  as  shown  in 
his  handwriting — no  saint  or  paragon,  but  a 
real,  red-blooded  he-man,  with  faults  and 
virtues  like  the  rest  of  us.  He  is  strong 
enough  to  fight  his  way  to  the  top,  when  he 
is  sure  of  what  he  wants  to  do;  weak  enough 
to  need  encouragement  and  praise  from 
those  who  really  understand  and  appreciate 
his  unusual  possibilities;  sincere  enough  so 
that  each  year  he  lives  should  bring  him 
greater  happiness  and  success.  As  the  Irish 
say,  "More  power  to  him." 


Who  Is  Louise  Rice? 

This  simple,  convincing  analysis  of  the  handwriting  of  Clark  Gable  is  the  first  of 
an  exclusive  series  that  Louise  Rice  will  present  in  Movie  Classic,  writing  of  a 
different  star  each  month.    Marlene  Dietrich  comes  next! 

Miss  Rice  is  America's  foremost  graphologist,  and  is  world-famous  for  her  studies 
of  handwriting.  She  is  author  of  many  books  on  the  subject,  including  "Character 
Shown  in  Handwriting,"  "Who  Is  Your  Mate?",  "By  Whose  Hand,"  "New  Blood," 
and  "The  Girl  Who  Walked  Without  Fear." 

In  twenty-five  years,  more  than  a  million  specimens  of  handwriting  have  been 
analyzed  by  Miss  Rice  and  a  group  of  trained  assistants.  She  has  been  consulted  in 
baffling  mysteries  by  Scotland  Yard  of  England,  Surete  of  Paris,  and  police  depart- 
ments throughout  the  United  States.  You  may  remember  that  she  was  called  in, 
only  recently,  in  the  Starr  Faithfull  murder  mystery  in  New  York — and  asked  to 
determine  if  certain  letters  had  been  written  by  the  murdered  girl  or  were  forgeries. 

In  short,  there  isn't  anyone  who  can  tell  more  about  character  from  handwriting 
than  Louise  Rice. — Editor.

ONE  POWDER  ALONE  brings  ,«»  iL  d.\aut,, 
of  an  EXCLUSIVE  ALMOND  BASE 


by  Patricia  Gordon 

Of  all  face  powders  only  one  has 
a  base  of  precious  almond.  That 
powder  is  PRINCESS  PAT.  The 
usual  powder  base  is  starch.  There 
is  all  the  difference  in  the  world 
...  difference  that  is  expressed  in 
your  beauty.  For  when  you  use 
Princess  Pat  face  powder,  your  skin, 
too,  is  given  mystical,  velvety,  aris- 
tocratic tone  and  texture  that  is 
simply  inimitable. 


ALMOND  BASE  gives  Exquisite  Caressing  Softness 

less!  The  wonderful  almond  base  gives  it — as  starch 
base  never  could.  And  softness  is  the  most  important 
characteristic  of  face  powder!  Princess  Pat  powder  goes 
upon  the  skin  with  an  utterly  new,  adorable  smoothness 
.  .  .  because  each  tiny,  invisible  particle  is  softer.  You 
actually  feel  the  caressing  effect  of  its  different  texture. 
Princess  Pat  powder  has  none  of  the  "dustiness"  of  starch 
base  powders.  Instead  it  lies  closely  upon  the  skin  and 
clings  longer  than  any  other  powder  you  have  ever  known. 

No  'Powdery*  Appearance  when  there  is  Almond  Base 

In  a  way  that  you  will  consider  magical — and  delightful — 
Princess  Pat  powder  creates  the  illusion  of  a  perfect  com- 
plexion. There  is  no  "powdery"  appearance — just  beauty. 
The  almond  base — instead  of  starch — completely  avoids 
chalkiness.  In  tin-  blending  of  Princess  Pat  shades,  colors  of 
supreme  delicacy  are  used  .  .  .  the  almond  base  permits. 
There  is  never  "hidden  chalkiness"  in  Princess  Pat  shades. 
Instead,   the  perfectly  created  pearly  hues   that  are  so 

gloriously  beautiful .  .  .  and  youthful. 

"1 
Almond   Base   is  Good  for  Your  Skin 

The  a  >f  t ,  caressing  almond  baseof  Princess 
Pat  face  powder  possesses  an  additional 

advantage.  It  is  of  distinct  benefit  to  your 

skin,  keeping  it  soft,  pliant,  fine  of  texture.

Is  Lupe  Velcz  Still  In  Love 
With  Gary  Cooper? 


(Continued  from  page  26) 


is  of  paramount  importance,  flared  up. 
"  Nobody  can  dare  say  Gary  left  me.  I  did 
it  myself.    Look!    I  prove  to  you ! " 

Had  to  Find  Gary's  Letters 

HEEDLESS  of  protest,  she  hurled  the 
covers  back  and  leapt  out  of  bed.  In 
bare  feet,  filmy  lace  nightgown  feebly  abet- 
ted by  a  short,  scarlet  satin  jacket  over  her 
shoulders,  she  rushed  to  a  tall  cabinet.  "I 
prove  to  you!"  she  reiterated,  pulling  open 
drawers,  tumbling  lingerie  out  onto  the 
floor. 

"My  God!"  she  screamed  suddenly. 
"Where  are  they?  Where  are  my  letters?" 
She  raised  her  voice,  importuning  alternate- 
ly in  English  and  Spanish.  From  every 
direction,  excited  figures  came  running.  Her 
mother,  moaning  and  chattering;  a  house- 
maid, eyes  wild;  a  cook,  exclaiming,  "Well, 
where  could  you  have  put  them,  baby?"; 
the  butler,  expressing  gentlemanly  concern 
from  the  door. 

"Where  are  my  letters?"  cried  Lupe. 
And  rushed  from  cabinet  to  closet,  to  dresser, 
to  desk,  pulling  out  drawers,  dumping  their 
contents  on  the  floor.  Her  hair  careened 
about  her  face.  The  other  women  ran 
futilely  after  her.  Finally,  after  a  mighty 
dive  into  her  dressing  table,  Lupe  rose 
triumphant. 

"I've  got  them!"  she  cried,  her  terrible 
furies  vanishing  in  the  gentle,  happy  smile 
she  turned  on  the  room. 

"She's  got  them,"  the  cry  went  over  the 
house.  "She's  got  them" — it  was  repeated 
throughout  all  the  rooms.  Abruptly  the 
pandemonium  subsided.  Like  an  operetta 
chorus  when  the  number  is  finished,  the 
others  receded  from  the  room  and  Lupe, 
clutching  a  huge  pile  of  letters  tied  in  a  rib- 
bon, clambered  back  into  bed.  She  hesi- 
tated a  moment,  as  if  in  the  excitement  she 
had  momentarily  forgotten  the  purpose. 
Then,  recollecting,  drew  out  a  letter. 

What  Gary  Wrote — After  Break 

EOK,"  she  said.  "Read  that."  Re- 
monstrances were  of  no  avail.  She 
thrust  the  letter  under  my  eyes,  pointed  to 
certain  lines  and  read  them  aloud.  "Look. 
Look  at  this.  And  this,"  reading  passages 
of  letters  written  from  Europe,  heart- 
breaking and  embarrassing  for  alien  eyes  to 
look  upon.  Yes,  it  was  obvious  that  Gary — 
when  these  were  written,  which  was  after 
the  break — still  loved  Lupe  and  hoped  she 
would  marry  him.  From  all  over  Europe 
had  come  these  wistful,  pleading  letters — 
he  "prayed  that  next  time  he  saw  Rome, 
his  little  Lupe  would  be  with  him;  that  he 
could  bring  her  to  Paris  as  his  bride;  that 
they  might  honeymoon  peacefully  through 
southern  France  ..." 

"You  see  now.  He  loves  me.  And  I  loff 
him.  Never  again  shall  I  loff  anyone  so 
much.  I  loff  him  as  long  as  I  live.  If  ever 
he  needed  me  in  any  way,  I'd  go  to  him.  If 
he  were  broke,  I'd  sell  my  house,  even  my 
jewelry,  to  help  him.  If  he  were  seeck,  I'd 
go  to  him  if  it  meant  walking  tor  miles 
through  storms. 

"We  had  troubles,  yes."  Her  eyes  snap- 
ped with  anger.  "  It  make  me  so  mad  to 
see  him  have  to  work  so  hard.  It  make  me 
furious.    Poor  sweet  boy! 

"And  now  guess  what!"  she  exclaimed, 
giving  vent  to  the  inevitable  little  demons 
of  jealousy  present  in  any  feminine  heart. 
"Now  Gary  is  going  with  a  Countess.  She 
is  crazy  about  him.  She  followed  him  back 
to  America,  the  first  time  he  went  abroad. 
He  is  with  her  all  the  time.    She  is  old.    She 


is  probably  forty  and  her  arms  are  like 
this —  '  Lupe  gave  a  graphic  illustration  of 
wonderfully  fat  arms  sagging  fleshily.  "Well, 
his  mother  will  be  pleased  anyway,  because 
it  is  a  Countess." 

She  flung  herself  sideways  on  the  bed, 
her  face  doleful,  speculating  unhappily  on 
what  might  have  come  to  pass,  had  Gary's 
family  considered  her  "good  enough  for 
him."  Her  simple,  honest  little  heart  had 
received  a  wound  it  would  always  carry. 

Her  Life  Since  Their  Parting 

MORE  than  eight  months  have  passed 
since  Lupe  broke  with  Gary.  In  the 
succeeding  interval,  she  has  been  pictured 
as  being  gayer  than  ever,  she  has  seen 
Europe,  herself,  in  company  with  John 
Gilbert,  and  has  been  widely  headlined  as 
about  to  marry  Randolph  Scott.  Things 
happen  to  Lupe. 

In  fact,  so  fast  do  things  happen  to  Lupe 
that  she  is  several  degrees  beyond  the  re- 
porter's dream  of  "good  copy."  By  the 
time  a  breathless  interviewer  has  reached 
his  office  and  knocked  out  the  Great  Velez 
Scoop,  Lupe  has  already  forgotten  her  in- 
tent of  the  moment.  It  is  impossible  to 
write  "spot  news"  about  Lupe.  When  it 
appears,  it  is  just  history. 

The  day  I  interviewed  her,  in  her  huge 
bedroom — a  room  whose  decorative  scheme 
will  still  be  futuristic  many  years  from  now 
— she  happened  to  be  ill,  a  rare  experience 
in  Lupe's  life. 

"  I  had  one  of  my  spells.  A  sinking  spell. 
Suddenly,  I  feel  all  funny  like — like  an  air- 
plane in  a  tailspin,  I  guess.  I  didn't  get 
home  till  five  this  morning.  Never  have  I 
had  so  much  fun!  I  laugh — oh,  how  I 
laugh.  That  is  why  I  am  seeck  now.  I 
laugh  myself  seeck!" 

But  she  wanted  to  forget  herself.  What  did 
I.  want — cigarettes,  another  cushion,  a  stool 
for  my  feet,  a  little  cognac?  "It's  so  cold 
to-day.  Have  cognac,  yes?"  A  maid  re- 
sponded to  Lupe's  commands.  From  her 
deep  concern,  it  was  evident  that  she  was 
convinced  I  would  be  fainting  on  the  spot 
if  the  girl  didn't  hurry.  And  then  I  asked 
her  about  Randolph  Scott. 

Swears  Rumors  Aren't  True 

I  SWEAR  to  you — on  the  Bible  and  my 
mother's  life! — that  it  is  not  so!  "  Thus 
Lupe,  her  voice  shaking  with  rage,  indigna- 
tion and  her  cold,  denied  any  intention  of 
marrying  Randolph  Scott,  wrho  was  a  bit 
startled  by  the  rumors,  himself. 

Lupe's  outburst  again  brought  her  mother 
— a  very  stout  woman  with  a  broad,  smiling 
face.  She  joined  Lupe  in  a  shrill,  excited 
conversation  in  which  both  appeared  to  be 
talking  at  once.  Their  gestures  were  large, 
profoundly  excited.  Whenever  there  was, 
accidentally,  a  pause,  Lupe's  mother  re- 
lapsed into  what  seemed  a  habitual  attitude 
— hands  clasped  on  ample  bosom,  eyes 
focused  in  passionate  admiration  and  deep 
amazement  on  this  remarkable  flower  she 
had  produced  and  who  had  precipitated 
her  simple  family  into  incredible  luxury. 
When  Lupe  explained  that  she  was  having 
an  interview,  her  mother  cried  out  in  com- 
prehension and  trotted  from  the  room,  her 
wide,  kindly  face  wreathed  in  polite  smiles. 

Lupe  is  now  making  "The  Broken  Wing," 
with  Melvyn  Douglas  at  Paramount — her 
first  picture  since  her  return  from  Europe, 
and  a  picture,  incidentally,  that  was  once 
scheduled  for  Gary  Cooper.  She  had  never 
been  to  Europe  before.  How  had  she  liked 
it?

inescapably  audible,  charged  the  'phone 
with  a  stream  of  conversation  sprinkled  with 
endearments,   intimacies.     Lupe's  jaw   fell, 
her  eyes  grew  round  with  dismay.    Her  plan 
had  somehow  gone  awry — she  didn't  quite 
know  why  and  her  unaccustomed  subtletj 
had  deserted  her.    She  didn't  know  what  to

up  and  looked  at  me  in  embarrassment. 
"  Well,"  she  said  weakly,  "  I  didn't  e     i 
all  that.    I  don't  ..."  her  voice  trailed  off 
to  futility. 

Desperately  she  cast  about  for  something

many,  many  times  of  late  she's  been  cut 
to  the  quick  because  all  the  attention  she 
used  to  get  goes  to  younger  women!  He 
doesn't  know  that  today  she  looked  into 
the  mirror  by  bright  daylight,  and  rec- 
ognized with  a  terrific  thud  of  tragedy 
that  she  looked  old — old — old! 

She  shouldn'c  be  tragic!  There's  some-

Do  you  realize  that  70 %  of  a  woman's

Permanently  Destroys   Hair 


Wallace  Beery  tells  how  it   feels  to  be 
Dead     for  an  hour 


{Continued  from  page  25) 


frightened.  Nor  was  he  amused  at  the  ab- 
surdity of  the  thing.  He  felt  no  immediate 
desire  for  action — to  deny  the  story.  He 
says  the  closest  that  words  can  come  to 
describing  his  emotions  is  to  state  that  what 
he  felt  was — a  certain  calm  ihoughtfulness. 

There  is  a  popular  belief  that  the  entire 
events  of  a  lifetime  will  flash  before  the 
mind's  eye  of  a  drowning  man.  Something 
akin  to  that  happened  to  Wallace  Beery  as 
he  sat  there  after  listening  to  his  own  death 
notice.  People,  and  places  and  colors,  stored 
in  the  back  of  his  mind  since  childhood, 
flashed  into  memory  in  less  time  than  it 
takes  to  tell  about  them  .  .  .  fragments  of 
his  days  as  a  "helping  hand"  with  the  cir- 
cus .  .  .  his  brother,  Noah,  as  a  boy  .  .  .  his 
first  great  screen  hit  in  "Robin  Hood"  .  .  . 
the  day  he  fell  in  love  with  Gloria  Swanson, 
his  first  wife  .  .  .  the  day  he  met  and  loved 
Rita,  his  present  wife  .  .  .  Hollywood,  and 
its  people  in  his  life  .  .  .  the  old  gateman  at 
the  studio  .  .  .  the  newspaper  boys  he 
laughed  and  kidded  with. 

First  Calmed  His  Wife 

LIKE  a  projectionist  gone  mad,  his  mem- 
w  ory  unreeled  scene  after  scene  of 
thoughts.  Just  a  second  it  took  .  .  .  just 
a  split-second  before  he  was  around  the 
table  with  his  great,  big  hand  on  Rita's 
shoulder. 

"Now,"  he  chided  calmly,  "what's  this? 
Now,  now  .  .  ."  She  began  to  laugh  quietly- 
through  her  tears. 

She  said:  "  Like  Mark  Twain's,  the  report 
of  your  death  has  been  greatly  exaggerated." 

Wally  smiled.  He  went  over  and  stood 
before  the  radio  that  had  proclaimed  his 
death  to  the  world.  It  had  grotesquely 
enough  gone  into  a  program  of  dance 
melodies  after  the  shocking  "news"  an- 
nouncement.   He  did  not  turn  it  off. 

The  telephone  rang.  "Wally,  for  God's 
sake,  is  this  you,  Wally?"  It  was  the  voice 
of  his  close  friend,  Eddie  Mannix,  M-G-M 
production  executive. 

"Yeah,"  said  Wally,  because  Wally 
always  says  "yeah." 

For  a  moment  the  man  at  the  other  end 
of  the  wire  could  not  speak.  Finally  he 
managed  to  say  "...  the  radio  .  .  .  just 
heard  something  crazy  .  .  .  the  studio  is 
wild  .  .  .  the  newspaper  boys  are  here  .  .  . 
their  offices  are  being  swamped  with  calls. 
.  .  .  You're  all  right,  Wally?" 

"Sure,"  said  Wally.  "Tell  everybody 
everything  is  all  right.  See  you  a  little 
later  on." 

He  didn't  particularly  want  to  talk  over 
the  telephone — even  to  his  best  friend.  The 
drama  of  the  situation  still  clutched  his 
imagination.  This  is  what  would  have  hap- 
pened if  the  report  hud  been  true.  This  is 
what  would  be  going  on  if  Wallace  Beery 
had  dropped  dead  in  his  dressing-room! 

Mannix  had  said  the  newspaper  offices 
were  being  deluged  with  hundreds  of  tele- 
phone calls,  from  strangers,  from  people 
who   knew    him   only   on   the   screen. 

Two  weeks  later  when  Wally  told  me 
his  story,  he  said  that  this  one  fact  was 
rushed  home  to  him  more  vividly  than  any- 
thing else:  The  public  really  cares! 

"Somehow  or  other,"  he  said,  "I'd  never 
thought  of  anything  along  that  line  to  any 
great  extent.  Or  if  I  had,  I  had  always 
figured  that  the  folks  who  write  to  us,  and 
stand  in  large  crowds  to  see  us,  were  just 
curious.  But  in  that  hour  that  I  was 
'officially  dead,'  I  thought  of  a  great  many 
things  that  had  never  occurred  to  me  be- 
fore. The  whole  experience  has  given  me  a 
different  slant  on  a  lot  of  things. 


"I  don't  want  this  to  sound  like  bunk, 
but  somehow  I  feel  a  sense  of  obligation  to 
the  folks  who  come  to  see  my  pictures.  Say, 
don't  make  this  sound  hammy,  will  you? — 
but  somehow  I  want  each  picture  to  be 
better  than  the  last  one.  To  be  clean  and 
decent  and  fit  for  kids  to  see.  I  want  the 
characters  I  play  to  be  real — not  goody- 
goody  heroes — but  honest-to-God  real  men 
like  'The  Champ'  and  Windy  in  'Hell 
Divers'  and  the  good-hearted  bum  in  'Min 
and  Bill.' 

"And  that's  why,  so  help  me  God,  I  was 
going  to  clear  out  of  this  business  and  let 
everything  go  hang  before  I'd  play  such  a 
part  as  the  fat,  sensuous  German  sheik  in 
'Grand  Hotel.'  As  that  role  was  first  writ- 
ten, there  wasn't  one  decent  thing  about 
the  man;  he  was  rotten.  I'd  rather  quit 
than  play  such  a  character  to  throw  in  the 
teeth  of  those  people  who — well,  called  up 
and  were  sorry  about  me  when  they  heard 
the  fake  news." 

For  fake  news  it  most  certainly  was — a 
shocking  mistake  of  those  who  had  "tuned 
in"  on  the  broadcast  without  picking  up 
what  had  gone  before,  and  "who  had,  them- 
selves, spread  the  report  over  the  whole  city. 
The  announcer  had  been  telling  the  plot  of 
"The  Champ,"  which  was  playing  at  a 
local  theatre,  in  which  story  the  prize- 
fighter played  by  Wally  dies  of  heart  fail- 
ure in  his  dressing-room — and  is  discovered 
dying  by  his  small,  worshipful  son  (Jackie 
Cooper).  The  announcer  meant  the  Wally 
of  the  picture,  not  the  real  Wallace  Beery 
— but  his  tone  was  so  dramatic  and  his 
choice  of  words  so  unfortunate  that  sixty 
minutes  passed  before  the  confusion  was 
cleared  away. 

What  Life  Means  to  Him 

Til  FY  changed  that  part  in  'Grand 
Hotel'  to  suit  me,"  continued  Wally. 
"  I'm  not  kidding  you,  and  I  wasn't  kidding 
the  studio  either — I'd  rather  quit  holding 
on  to  that  confidence  and  respect  and  feel- 
ing that  people  have  for  me,  than  play  the 
rule  as  it  was  first  written.  If  my  career 
can't  further  that  feeling — then  my  career 
is  no  longer  important  to  me.  Just  as  I 
thought  to  myself,  that  hour  I  sat  home 
thinking  over  my  'death':  'If  it  was  true 
that  you  had  checked  out,  you'd  have  gone 
with  the  satisfaction  of  knowing  you'd  left 
a  decent,  respectable  memory  of  your  work. 
That's  more  than  something — it's  a  lot!' 

"I  guess  you  know  that  Rita  and  I  have 
recently  adopted  three  children.  A  distant 
relative  of  my  wife's  just  died,  leaving  three 
kids — George,  who's  nine;  William,  who's 
four;  and  the  baby,  Carol  Anne.  I  can't 
tell  you  the  happiness  they  have  brought 
into  our  lives — and  I  know  we're  going  to 
be  proud  of  'em.  Well,  I  figure  it's  just  as 
much  my  duty  to  make  them  proud  of  vie. 
They've  given  us  something  to  live  for.  If 
being  an  actor  means  I  have  to  play  roles 
that  aren't  my  style — then  I  don't  want  to 
be  an  actor.  Life  holds  too  many  wonderful 
things  besides  celebrity  and  a  pocketbook. 

"I  said  to  Rita  the  other  day:  'If  worse 
comes  to  worst,  how  would  you  like  to  go 
up  to  the  mountain  cabin  for  the  rest  of 
your  life?  You  and  the  kids  and  I  and  some 
bacon  and  beans  and  a  couple  of  good  horses. 
How  would  you  like  to  pack  your  ermine 
coat  away  in  mothballs,  and  sell  the  cars 
and  rent  the  house  in  Beverly  Hills?'  Say, 
do  you  think  for  a  minute  she  wouldn't  go? 

"You  bet  she  would!  I  learned  a  lot 
about  Rita — it  was  written  in  her  eyes — 
when  that  radio  fellow  said:  'Wallace  Beery 
is  discovered  dead  in  his  dressiyig-room  .  .  .'"

worth  millions  at  stake,  Max  Factor,  Holly-

too  proud  for  deceit,  that  she  invariably 
speaks  the  truth.  Hence,  if  she  said  to  you, 
"I  am  the  granddaughter  of  Elizabeth,  the 
Empress  of  Austria,"  you  would  believe  her 
at  once,  even  without  that  "proof"  of 
which  she  speaks  so  scornfully. 

Where  Her  Detractor  Was  Wrong 

IN  her  magazine  article,"  Elissa  con- 
tinued, "this  woman  made  several 
misstatements.  She  said  those  in  Court 
circles  smiled  at  the  idea  of  Grandmother's 
having  a  secret  daughter.  This  shall  be  dis- 
proved in  a  moment.  She  also  claimed  that 
mother's  book,  'The  Secret  of  an  Empress,' 
was  turned  down  by  an  Italian  publisher — a 
statement  that  is  absolutely  untrue.  I,  my- 
self, have  met  the  very  publisher  and  heard 
him  tell  of  the  excitement  around  his  office 
the  day  the  manuscript  was  accepted  and 
rushed  to  press,  as  well  as  of  his  consterna- 
tion when  he  discovered  that  the  book  could 
never  be  printed  in  Italy — suppressed  by 
Hapsburg  power. 

"I  was  only  seven  years  old  then,  but  I 
remember  the  meeting  distinctly,  from  my 
first  curtsey  to  the  publisher's  farewell.  He 
understood  Mother's  reason  for  writing  it — 
to  win  royal  recognition  for  her  children. 
The  book  was  eventually  published  in 
England  in  1914,  but  the  War  prevented 
any  acknowledgment  from  the  Hapsburgs 
— and  Franz-Joseph  died  before  the  War 
was  over.  Not  long  afterward,  Emperor 
Charles,  his  son,  was  overthrown,  and  died 
in  exile.    The  monarchy  was  ended. 

"This  American  woman  referred  to  my 
mother's  book  and  to  a  magazine  article,  and 
vehemently  denied  a  statement  that  never 
was  made — that  the  Emperor  Franz-Joseph 
was  alleged  to  be  my  grandfather.  I'm  sure 
that  if  she  carefully  re-read  the  article  and 
the  book,  she  would  discover  that  they 
refrain  from  any  comment  on  the  subject. 

"  I,  myself,  do  not  know  definitely  wheth- 
er or  not  the  Emperor  Franz-Joseph  was 
my  grandfather.  Those  things  are  so  difficult 
to  prove.  I  do  know,  however,  that  one  of 
the  most  glorious  things  in  my  grand- 
mother's life  was  her  friendship  for  King 
Ludwig  II  of  Bavaria.  A  few  weeks  ago, 
there  came  into  my  possession  a  sheaf  of 
letters  written  to  my  grandmother  by 
Ludwig;  they  were  beautiful  things,  highly 
romantic." 

And  after  a  moment  of  silent  reverie, 
Elissa  said  that  she  considered  the  friend- 
ship of  Elizabeth  and  Ludwig  one  of  the 
most  romantic  episodes  in  history.  "They 
held  secret  trysts,  hidden  away  from  the 
world,  on  that  divine  Isle  of  Roses  ..." 

The  Unhappy  Empress 

JUST  a  word  of  explanation  for  this 
strange  friendship  between  Elizabeth, 
the  Empress  of  Austria,  and  Ludwig,  called 
"the  mad  King  of  Bavaria" — as  related  to 
me  by  Elissa.  Both  were  of  the  Bavarian 
Wittlesbach  stock,  independent,  freedom- 
loving  people.  And  it  wasn't  long  after 
marrying  the  Emperor  Franz-Joseph  that 
Elizabeth  discovered  it  would  be  utterly 
impossible  to  exist  in  the  atmosphere  of 
formal  restraint  and  tradition  common  to 
the  House  of  Hapsburg.  When  one  after 
another  of  her  first  three  children  were 
taken  from  her  to  be  reared  by  the  stern 
Archduchess  Sophia,  she  became  disgusted, 
and  determined  that  her  next  child  should 
be  raised  away  from  Court  and  that  until 
then  she  would  seek  escape,  herself,  in  a  life 
of  lonely,  but  comparatively  pleasant 
travel. 


In  the  meantime,  Ludwig  hoped  to  for- 
get his  love  for  Elizabeth  by  becoming 
engaged  to  her  sister,  Helen.  A  remarkable 
resemblance  existed  between  the  two  sis- 
ters; but  nevertheless  Ludwig  found  it 
impossible  to  forget.  At  odd  hours  of  the 
night,  he  would  awaken  Helen — not  £0 
mention  her  long-suffering  father,  Duke 
Max — and  then,  without  waiting  for  her  to 
dress  and  come  down  to  the  salon,  he  would 
toss  a  bouquet  of  roses  on  the  piano  and 
dash  madly  out  into  the  night.  No  wonder 
Ludwig  was  called  mad!  But  it  is  obvious 
that  his  eccentricities  developed  from  a 
futile  desire  to  forget  his  all-consuming 
passion  for  Elizabeth. 

Finally,  the  Empress  and  the  "mad" 
King  found  mutual  healing  in  opening  their 
hearts  to  one  another.  They  chose  as  their 
meeting  place  the  Isle  of  Roses,  situated  in 
the  Lake  of  Starnburg  between  Feldafing 
and  Munich.  Hour  after  hour,  they  con- 
versed in  that  little  summer  house  in  the 
center  of  the  Isle,  shielded  by  thousands  of 
the  loveliest  roses  in  existence,  the  scent 
from  which  wafted  even  to  the  mainland. 

Faithful  to  the  End 

LUDWIG  went  to  the  isle  on  his  steam 
-j  yacht,  Tristan,  while  Elizabeth  in- 
variably hired  a  boat  of  her  own.  If  for  any 
reason  Elizabeth  should  arrive  at  the 
tryst  ing  place  and  Ludwig  could  not 
appear,  being  prevented  by  affairs  of  state, 
she  would  write  him  a  tender  note,  sign  it 
"The  Dove,"  and  leave  it  in  a  secret  hiding 
place.  Likewise,  if  Ludwig  arrived  at  the 
Island  only  to  find  Elizabeth  absent,  he 
also  would  leave  a  note,  signing  his,  how- 
ever, "The  Eagle."  When  it  was  impossible 
for  either  to  go  to  the  island,  Elizabeth  on 
occasion  would  suddenly  appear  in  Lud- 
wig's  study  at  Schloss  Berg — another  proof 
that  she  was  unconventional. 

When  their  meetings  grew  more  infre- 
quent, Lud wig's  eccentricities  became  ac- 
centuated. Finally  a  group  of  cabinet 
ministers  adjudged  him  insane.  With  a 
doctor  for  a  companion,  he  was  incarcerated 
in  the  Schloss  Berg.  When  he  discovered 
that  men  were  on  the  way  to  persecute  him 
further,  he  ran  from  the  castle  to  the  shore 
of  Lake  Starnburg,  within  sight  of  the  Isle 
of  Roses,  and  there  killed  the  doctor  and 
committed  suicide. 

When  Elizabeth  had  been  admitted  to 
the  room  in  the  castle  where  Ludwig's  body 
had  been  laid,  she  collapsed  to  the  floor  in  a 
deep  swoon.  So  slowly  did  she  regain  con- 
sciousness that  her  mind  was  still  clouded 
when  she  shrieked;  "Take  the  King  out  of 
the  vault!  He's  not  dead!  He  only  feigns 
death  so  he  may  be  at  peace  without  tor- 
mentors!" At  the  funeral  the  casket  of  the 
"mad"  King  was  literally  surrounded  by 
wreaths.  One  single  flower,  however,  rested 
on  his  breast,  a  spray  of  jasmine,  Eliza- 
beth's last  gift  to  Ludwig. 

Memories  of  Elissa's  Mother 

"AND  now,"  Elissa  Landi  remarks  rather 
x\  sadly,  "the  Isle  of  Roses  is  nothing 
but  a  bit  of  burnt  land  covered  with 
brush  ..."  She  then  goes  on  to  say  that 
after  the  King's  death,  the  Empress  told 
Caroline,  Elissa's  mother,  to  cherish  the 
name  of  Ludwig  forever. 

"'And  Caroline,'  she  added,  'you  have 
lost  the  dearest  friend  you  ever  had.'  Mother 
never  will  forget  that  day.  Nor  will  she 
forget  the  visits  the  Empress  made  her 
while  she  was  being  brought  up  in  Vienna 
by  a' family  called  Kaiser.  She  had  her  own 
ideas  as  to  how  Mother  should  be  raised.

I  believe  that  I  am  the  only  surviving  inti-

tourage who  saw  the  whole  affair  through.  The 
Empress  Elizabeth  of  Austria  did  indeed  se-

Sassetot,  and  Elissa's  mother  is  that  daughter.

Our  Hollywood  Neighbors 

{Continued  from  page  12) 

what  seemed  to  be  a  thoroughly  reliable 
moving  concern,  but  just  to  be  on  the 
safe  side  she  thought  a  little  extra  assur- 
ance might  not  be  amiss.  After  pointing 
out  several  heavy  pieces  of  antique  furni- 
ture, she  said — 

"Now  that  is  awfully  heavy.  Are  you 
sure  you  can  handle  it?" 

"Lady,"  replied  the  muscular  gent  with 
injured  dignity,  "we've  moved  Marie 
Dressier." 


FEBRUARY  fourth  was  a  sort  of  birth- 
day for  the  motion  picture  industry 
in  Hollywood.  Twenty-four  years  ago  on 
that  day  production  started  on  the  very 
first  fillum  to  be  produced  on  the  flicker 
coast.  It  was  a  super-super  special  entitled 
"Across  the  Divide,"  and  it  ran  all  of  one 
whole  reel.  The  studio  was  in  the  backyard 
of  a  Chinese  laundry  owned  by  Sing  Loo. 
The  sun  provided  the  only  light  at  hand, 
and  the  actors  dressed  behind  a  fence.  The 
ladies  dressed  in  the  laundry,  probably 
while  Sing  Loo  wasn't  looking. 

Most  of  the  names  in  the  cast  have  long 
since  been  forgotten.  Only  the  late  Tom 
Santschi,  to  become  famous  afterward  as 
the  hero  of  the  screen's  first  serial,  is  still 
remembered.  He,  at  least,  went  on  to 
fame  and  some  fortune.  The  other  pioneers 
of  a  great   industry  are  not  remembered. 

Sic  transit  gloria  inundi. 


"T'VE  finally  discovered  the   meaning  of 

JL  'temperament,'  "  said  the  famous  movie 
star.    "It's  disagreeing  with  the  producer." 


THE  big  problem  has  been  settled  at 
last.  George  Bancroft  will  not  wear  a 
beard  in  "Red  Harvest."  That  manly 
phiz  will  not  be  covered  with  hirsute 
shrubbery,  and  you  won't  have  to  look  at 
your  program  to  discover  the  identity  of  the 
star. 

Paramount,  not  going  in  much  now  for 
high-salaried  stars,  is  rumored  to  be  a  bit 
upset  at  the  considerable  stipend  Bancroft 
is  collecting  every  week.  They're  reported 
to  be  quite  intrigued  with  the  idea  of  Mr. 
Charles  Bickford,  also  a  big  he-man. 

Bickford,  incidentally,  is  not  interested  in 
term  contracts,  no  matter  how  big  they 
come.  He  has  plenty  of  money  of  his  own, 
and  he  has  discovered  that  no  star  has 
much  to  say  about  his  pictures  without 
constant  battling.  The  big  boy  is  coming 
back  strong  these  days.  He  will  appear 
opposite  Tallulah  Bankhead  in  her  next 
picture,  and  offers  are  pouring  in. 


ADD  to  flickertown  anecdotes:  The 
.  great  screen  lady  who  would  not 
wear  patches  and  tatters  to  the  hard-times 
party  of  the  Mayfair  Club.  She  could  not 
allow  her  public  to  see  her  in  anything  less 
than  Patou's  best.  Will  Edna  May  Oliver 
please  give  a  good  sniff  for  me? 


NOW  there's  nothing  funny  about 
pleurisy,  but  the  very  idea  of  Lupe 
Yelez  suffering  from  it  strikes  me  as  funny. 
It  just  sounds  like  one  of  those  things  that 
Lupe  would  never,  never  have.  For  one 
thing  I  always  thought  she  was  too  lively 
to  catch  anything  like  that.  At  any  rate  it 
kept  her  away  from  "The  Broken  Wing" 
company  for  four  days.  Incidentally,  a 
picture  is  pretty  dull  business  for  the  Mexi- 
can madcap  if  she  can't  flirt  with  her 
leading  man.  Fredric  March  is  the  star  in 
"The  Broken  Wing,"  and  Freddie's  reputa- 
tion would  make  that  of  Caesar's  wife  look 


like  a  spotted   boarding  house  tablecloth

The  most  elfin  of  the  freres  Marx  was  a

kiss.  The  host,  amused  at  first,  finally  tool; 
him  to  task. 

"You'll  have  to  stop  that,  Harpo,"  lie 
ted.  "If  you  must  do  those  things, 
try  to  be  more  diplomatic.  Lead  up  to  it 
gracefully."

Avoid  self-infection  by  using 

KLEENEX  disposable  TISSUES 
instead  of   handkerchiefs 


COLDS  are  costly,  both  in  health  and 
money.  Do  you  realize  how  costly? 
Do  you  realize  that  colds  are  the  starting 
point  for  a  whole  list  of  serious  and  expen- 
sive illnesses?  That  colds  cause  more  time 
lost  from  work,  more  absences  from  school, 
than  any  other  disease? 

It  is  good  sense  and  good  business  to  take 
every  precaution  the  moment  you  notice  the 
first  sign  of  a  cold  in  yourself  or  any  member 
of  your  family. 

Start  using  Kleenex 
at  once 

Stop  using  handkerchiefs  when 
the  first  sniffle  starts!  Handker- 
chiefs collect  germs — cause 
constant  sell -infection,  if  you 
use  them  over  ami  over. 

The  only  safe  handkerchief  is  one  you 
can  use  and  destroy  —  Kleenex  disposable 
tissues. 

Kleenex  costs  so  little  that  you  use  each 
ii  :ue  only  once.  Then  you  destroy  it.  be- 
fore it  lias  a  chance  tO  Self-infect  you  or  spread 
infection  through  the  family.  Kleenex  is  soil,

comfortable  —  and  relieves  you  of  all  hand- 
kerchief washing.  Children  especially  need 
Kleenex  because  they  catch  cold  so  e 
and  so  often  develop  serious  complications. 
The  value  of  Kleenex  in  beauty  care  is  well 
known.  Used  for  removing  cleansing  ct 
it  prevents  any  risk  of  leaving  bits  of  oil  and 
dirt  in  the  pores.  Mothers  find  it  saves  clothes 
when  giving  children  cod  liver  oil  or  medi- 
cines, or  when  applying  ointments.

Looking  Them  Over 

(Continued  from  page  24) 

gether,  and  Joan  and  Norma  always  seem  to 
have  so  little  to  talk  about! 


REPORTS  from  New  York  hint  that 
Jeanette  Loff  (remember  the  lovely 
Loff?)  will  soon  become  the  bride  of  a  well- 
known  Broadway  playboy.  If  this  is  true, 
Jeanette  will  probably  join  the  ranks  of 
Phyllis  Haver,  Ruth  Taylor,  Jane  Winton 
and  several  others,  who  have  turned  their 
valuable  backs  on  a  career  in  favor  of 
matrimony  in  a  Park  Avenue  salon  or  a 
Greenwich  Village  penthouse. 


BILLIE  DOVE'S  favorite  laugh  partner  is 
Charlie  Lederer,  who  authored  most  of 
"Cock  of  the  Air."  Nothing  serious  to  this 
one — Charlie  just  knows  the  best  jokes  and 
wisecracks  and  Billie,  in  spite  of  her  drowsy 
beauty,  loves  laughter. 


SARI  MARITZA  (pronounced  Shar-ee  Ma- 
reetza)  says  she  doesn't  care  what  they 
call  her  as  long  as  they  don't  make  it 
"Sorry"  Maritza.  Unfortunately  enough, 
that  is  the  most  common  pronunciation. 

Sari  is  a  cute  little  girl  who  looks  more 
like  a  cherubic  ingenue  than  the  alluring 
"exotic"  she  has  been  painted.  Her  figure 
is  not  unlike  Sylvia  Sidney's — proof  that 
curves  are  coming  back.  You'll  be  hearing 
more  about  Sari,  who  has  made  a  terrific  hit 
with  the  press.  Most  of  the  boys  and  girls 
like  her  better  than  any  of  the  recent 
importations.  Most  of  the  boys  think  she 
looks  awfully  cuddlesome. 


MONA  MARIS  and  Clarence  Brown 
have  apparently  checked  out  on  their 
romance  after  a  two-year  "engagement,"  in- 
cluding wedding  bell  rumors  and  a  diamond 
ring.  Mona  still  has  the  ring,  so  it  couldn't 
have  been  originally  intended  for  the  fourth 
finger  after  all. 

There  is  talk  that  Mona  will  probably  go 
to  New  York  in  the  early  Spring  to  try  her 
luck  on  the  stage. 

In  the  meantime,  Director  Brown's  latest 
rumor  is  Dorothy  Burgess. 

TALABIRELL,  Universal's  offering  upon 
the  altar  of  the  "exotics,"  is  unique  in 
that  she  is  not  a  follower  of  the  great  Garbo. 
Tala  thinks  Helen  Hayes  is  the  finest 
actress  on  stage  or  screen  and  if  she  could 
get  roles  like  Helen's,  she  would  let  the 
Garbo  clan  go  their  glamourous  way. 

But  Tala  is  going  to  suffer  comparison  to 
Garbo,  whether  or  not  she  wants  it.  For 
one  thing,  her  figure  is  similar  to  the  famous 
Swede's — and  she  has  the  same  manner  of 
carriage. 

SPEAKING  of  comparisons,  there  is  just 
a  little  bit  too  much  of  the  Constance 
Bennett  motif  in  Carole  Lombard's  new 
gowns  and  photographs.  Maybe  it  is  un- 
intentional, but  it  looks  as  though  Carole 
were  trying  very  hard  to  look  like  Constance 
from  her  sweeping  hairline  to  her  wide, 
generous  mouth. 

Carole  is  too  interesting  and  individual  to 
suffer  such  continued  comparison  with 
another  big  star. 

WHAT  a  treat  it  is  for  a  lucky  scribe  to 
be  allowed  a  peek  onto  the  well- 
guarded  "Grand  Hotel"  set  out  at  M-G-M. 
Edmund  Goulding  was  kind  enough  to  call 
off  the  cops  at  the  door  of  the  set  the  other 
day  and  allow  us  to  glimpse  the  making  of 
a  great  scene  from  that  picture.

\  I  rE'VE  often  wondered  why  some  of  the 
\  \  -   did   not   move   into  their  elab-

Most  of  the  little  cottages  are  as  pretty  and 
comfortable  as  a  New   \  ork  penthouse. 

But  s<i  far  as  we  know,  Ruth  Chatterton 
is  the  tirst  star  actually  to  take  up  residence 
on  a  studio  lot  during  the  filming  of  a  pic- 
ture. 

Ruth  has  moved  bag-and-baggage  into 
her  lovely  bungalow  on  the  First  National 
lot  and  is  hav  ing  a  lot  of  fun  inviting  friends 
to  motor  through  the  studio  gates  to  dine 
with  her.  The  other  night  she  gave  an 
informal  card  party.  But  la  Chatterton 
says  her  evening  entertainments  will  be  few 
and  far  between,  as  she  moved  into  the 
bungalow  primarily  to  save  her  strength, 
id  retire  early.

iHERE  IS  one  mascara 
that's  really  waterproof.  The  new

smart  or  burn.  And  instantly  your 
lashes  appear  long  and  dark,  soft 
and  smooth.  Your  eyes  take  on  a 
new  brilliance — a  new  sparkle! 

Beauty  editors  of  the  foremost 
magazines  have  voiced  their  en- 
thusiasm over  Winx  in  no  uncertain 
terms  . . .  Now  we  invite  you  to  try

MIRIAM  HOPKINS,  pet  and  pride  of 
Paramount,  earned  herself  a  little 
vacation  after  completing  her  new  picture 
with  Jack  Oakie. 

All  her  life  Miriam  has  wanted  to  visit 
San  Francisco.  It  is  the  one  interesting 
American  city  she  has  never  seen. 

So  on  the  spur  of  the  moment  Miriam,  her 
maid,  two  trunks  and  four  valises  took  the 
train  to  the  town  on  the  Bay. 

It  seems  that  San  Francisco  was  just  as 
anxious  to  see  Miriam  Hopkins.  Two  hours 
after  her  arrival  became  known,  she  had 
received  ten  baskets  of  flowers  and  a  raft  of 
telephone  calls  and  interviewers. 


IF  Virginia  Bruce  keeps  up  in  her  present 
fashion,  she  is  going  to  give  Mary  Brian 
a  run  for  her  "popular  girl"  honors.  We've 
already  mentioned  that  Jack  Oakie  finds  the 
blonde  Virginia  a  most  attractive  dinner 
partner — and  on  the  nights  when  Jack  isn't 
hanging  on  her  telephone — Billy  Bakewell 
is! 

A  year  ago,  Virginia  was  a  glorified  extra 
girl  in  Hollywood  and  none  of  the  eager 
young  men  seemed  to  know  she  existed.  But 
Virginia  went  to  New  York  and  the  Follies 
— and  now  everything  is  just  lots  of  fun  in 
Hollywood. 

Being  in  the  Follies  certainly  seems  to 
make  a  girl's  stock  go  up. 


HIS  success  in  "Dr.  Jekyll  and  Mr. 
Hyde"  has  agreed  with  Fredric 
March.  Freddy  used  to  be  a  quiet,  retiring 
young  man,  but  lately  he  has  blossomed  out 
as  a  wisecracker  with  the  best  of  them. 

For  one  thing,  he  used  to  feel  ill-at-ease 
and  nervous  at  the  prospect  of  meeting  an 
interviewer  or  newspaperman.  Now  he's 
the  buddy  of  all  the  visiting  scribes  who 
can  get  past  the  Paramount  policeman. 


HERE'S  a  funny  one  for  you: 
The  other  afternoon  Ann  Meredith's 
Beauty  Parlor  was  crowded  with  film  celeb- 
rities. In  one  booth  Ruth  Chatterton  was 
having  her  nails  manicured.  And  Joan 
Bennett  was  having  her  hair  clipped  at  the 
barber's.  Joan  Blondell  was  reading  a  maga- 
zine in  the  "dryer  room."  Carmel  Myers 
was  waiting  a  moment  for  the  hour  of  her 
appointment.  Evelyn  Brent  was  having  her 
hair  water-waved.  Evalyn  Knapp  had  just 
arrived.  Yet  in  spite  of  all  this  movie  glory, 
under  one  beauty  roof,  work  was  going  on 
pretty  much  the  same.  No  extra  excite- 
ment, if  you  know  what  I  mean. 

Suddenly,  and  without  a  previous  ap- 
pointment, Mary  Roberts  Rinehart  arrived 
and  asked  for  an  appointment  to  have  her 
hair  clipped.  As  the  famous  novelist  was 
ushered  into  a  booth,  the  entire  shop  went 
into  a  frenzy.  Even  the  famous  movie  stars 
were  not  above  attempting  to  peek  in  at 
Mrs.  Rinehart  as  they  went,  past  her  booth. 
Such  is  fame  in  Hollywood!  America's 
highest-paid  woman  writer  was  in  Holly- 
wood on  a  visit  to  her  son,  who  is  under 
contract,  as  a  scenario  writer,  to  Para- 
mount. 


SAW  Marlene  Dietrich  on  the  Paramount 
lot  the  other  morning  and  just  why 
Marlene  doesn't  enjoy  the  reputation  of 
"the  best-dressed  woman  in  Hollywood" 
we've  never  been  able  to  figure  out.  She 
was  wearing  a  stunning  black  velvet  street 
dress  with  a  dainty  lace  collar  at  the  throat. 
Her  hat  was  black — one  of  those  very  perky 
affairs  that  shadow  one  eye.  About  her 
shoulders  she  wore  two  beautiful  silver 
foxes.  On  Park  Avenue  Marlene  would 
have  been  a  riot.  In  Hollywood  she  was  a 
bit  too  conservative,  perhaps?

Depicting  the  captivating  charm  and  physical 
attractiveness  which  chic  slenderness  brings. 

Thousands  upon  thousands  of  fashionable 
women  are  increasingly  placing  their  faith  in 
a  half  teaspoonful  of  Kruschen  Salts  every 
morning  before  breakfast  to  safely  lose  excess 
fat  and  give  them  a  beguilingly  slender,  trim 
figure — glorious  health,  new  energy,  strength 
and  great  body  activity. 

Mrs.  C.  La  Follette  ofShepardsville,  Ky.  writes: 
"I  take  Kruschen  and  find  it  fine.  Reduced  24 
lbs.  in  31  days.  Ate  all  I  wanted,  3  meals  a 
day.    Feel  like  a  new  person," 

An  85c  bottle  lasts  4  weeks  and  leading  drugstores 
the  world  over  heartily  recommend  this  pleasant,  effect- 
ive treatment.  Many  folks  hasten  results  by  going  lighter 
on  potatoes,  pastries  and  fatty  meats. 

Remember  Kruschen  is  more  than  just  a  laxative  salt — ■ 
It's  a  marvelous  blend  of  6  SEPARATE  minerals  which 
help  every  gland,  nerve  and  body  organ  to  function 
properly — then  just  watch  excess  fat  gradually  dis- 
appear!

Clear,  sparkling  eyes  compel  more  admira-

easy  to  have  them!  All  you  need  do  is  adopt 
Murine,  the  time-tried  eye  clearer  and 
brightener  that's  used  by  the  loveliest  screen 
and  stage  stars. 

This  famous  lotion  dissolves  the  dust-laden 
film  of  mucus  that  makes  eyes  look  dull, 
and  by  its  gentle  astringent  action  reduces 
bloodshot  veins.  You  can  use  it  freely  as  it 
positively  contains  no  belladonna  and  other 
harmful  ingredients.  150  applications  cost 
but  60c  at  drug  and  department  stores.  Buy

ZASU  PITTS  and  Tom  Gallery  have  final- 
ly come  to  a  definite  parting  of  the  ways. 
For  years  Zasu  and  Tom  have  been  living 
apart  and  it  is  believed  that  their  greatest 
wish  was  to  avoid  actual  divorce  if  possible. 
Zasu  told  the  judge  that  Gallery  had  left 
her  November  24,  1926  and  that  he  had 
refused  to  return  to  their  home.  Upon  the 
charge  of  desertion  she  asks  the  custody  of 
their  own  child,  Ann,  aged  9,  and  an  adopted 
son,  Don  Mike  Gallery,  also  9,  who  was  the 
adopted  son  of  the  late  Barbara  La  Marr. 
Immediately  upon  filing  suit  the  screen

ALL  the  Hollywood  chatter  writers  are 
.  complaining  about  the  "happy  end- 
ings" of  several  feuds  which  have,  hereto- 
fore, kept  the  colony  buzzing  with  interest. 

Gloria  Swanson  is  married  to  Michael 
Farmer  and  Connie  Bennett  is  very  happy 
with  the  Marquis.  This  three-ring  circus, 
which  kept  every  local  reporter  on  his  toes, 
in  order  to  get  the  latest  development  for 
the  Dear  Public,  has  settled  down  into  a 
duet  of  happy  domesticity. 

With  the  marriage  of  John  Considine,  Jr. 
and  Carmen  Pantages  and  the  coming  nup- 
tials of  Joan  Bennett  and  Gene  Markey, 
this  famous  triangle  must  be  crossed  off, 
too.  John  and  Carmen  and  Joan  supplied 
much  lively  gossip  several  months  ago  with 
their  strange  three-cornered  heart  affairs.

dynamite,  has  tamed  down  to  a  contented 
lingerie  shop  owner. 

No  longer  are  the  fans  fighting  over  the 
screen  supremacy  of  Garbo  vs.  Dietrich. 
They've  decided  they  are  both  grand. 

Now,  apparently,  everybody  is  happy  and 
satisfied — except  the  gossip  writers,  who  are 
wondering  where  their  next  "sensation"  is 
coming  from.  Of  course,  there  are  always 
Lupe  and  Tallulah  .  .  . 


ANITA  PAGE  has  just  signed  a  brand-new 
.  contract  with  M-G-M. 

Dorothy  Lee  is  no  longer  with  RKO.  We 
hear  that  Mary  Astor  will  soon  complete 
her  agreement  with  the  same  studio. 

Myrna  Loy's  contract  with  M-G-M  lasted 
six  months.  Too  many  other  exotic  ladies

Marian  Nixon  is  expected  to  sign  a  long

FRIENDS   believe  that   Edgar   Wallace 
had  a  premonition  that  something  would 
n   to   him   in   America.     A   few   days 
the    famous   detective-story    writer 
left  England  for  Hollywood  for  a  few  weeks 

irio-w  riling,  he  took  oul 
three-months'  insurance  policy.  It  expired 
ten  days  after  his  sudden  death  from 
pneumonia.  He  had  completed  -ix  scenarios 
in  the  brief  time  he  was  in  Hollywood  an 
amazing  record. 


MAURICE    Costello,    once    the    mosl 
famous  matinee  idol  in  the  land  and 
one  of  the  first  motion  picture  actors,  but 
now  better  known  as  the  father  of  Dolores 
lo    Barrymore   and    Helene   Costello 
Sherman,     walked     into    a     Beverly     Hills

I  lapsed,  victim  ol  a  stroke  ol  apoplexy, 
few   hours,   Dolores  and   Helene  de- 
spaired  of   his   living— but   the   grand   old 
actor  rallied  and,  as  this  is  written,  seems  on 
the  way  to  recovery.    Hollywood  applauds, 
for    nothing  so  thrills  actors  as  a   winning

to  make  sometime. 


CHARLIE  Chaplin,  who  has  been  ski-

Acme 

Did  you  recently  hear  Clark  Gable 
on  your  radio — and  catch  what  per- 
sonality he  has,  even  when  you  can't 
see  him?  Here's  how  he  broadcasts 
at  premieres 


Read  how  he  gained 
new  flesh,  new  pep — quick! 

HE  KNOWS  what  it  is  to  lose  weight,  to 
lose  strength — to  be  threatened  with 
a  lifetime  of  ill  health.  His  days  and  his 
nights  were  one  long  nightmare  of  fatigue, 
lie  couldn't  even  climb  the  stairs  with- 
out resting  halfway — yet  today  he  runs 
up  them — two  at  a  time! 

Ask  this  lucky  fellow  where  he  got  all 
his  pep.  Ask  him  how  he  filled  out  his 
thin  figure — put  color  in  his  pale  cheeks. 
And  here's  what  he'll  say: 

Reveals  his  secret 

"For  years,  I  felt  as  if  I  were  dragging  a 
ton  of  bricks  around  with  inc.  I  couldn't 
walk  upstairs  without  rcstine..  1  was 
always  tired  and  discouraged  and  had  lost 
a  good  deal  of  weight. 

"Then  one  day  I  noticed  an  ad  on  Iron- 
ized  Yeast.  I  decided  to  give  it  a  trial. 
After  taking  the  pleasant  little  tablets  for 
several  weeks,  I  am  like  a  new  person.  I 
have  gained  11  pounds  and  have  fresh, 
healthy  color  in  my  cheeks.  I  never  had 
so  much  pep  before.  Climbing  stairs  is 
a  cinch  now.  I  gallop  up  them  in  gri  il 
style — two  steps  at  a  time."  Mr.  Lcroy 
Lcimbach,  Chief  Engineer,  School  No. 
213,  Baltimore,  Md.  This  is  only  one  of 
hundreds  of  equally  fine  reports  from 
Ironized  Yeast  users  everywhere. 

A  money-saving  tonic 

In  times  like  these,  it  means  dollars  and

to  winning  health  and  energy! 

It  takes  seven  pounds  of  specially  cul- 
tured "Jeer  yeast" — specially  imported 
from  foreign  breweries  to  make  One  pound 


of  the  yeast  concentrate  used  in  Ironized 
\  St.  Concentrated  seven  times — is  it 
any  wonder  Ironized  Yeast  brings  such 
quick,  sure  and  lasting  results!  This 
concentration  process  is  so  important  that 
the  Biological  Commission  of  the  League 
of  Xations-at  an  official  session  in  Geneva, 
Switzerland— recommended  its  adoption 
as  a  world-wide  standard. 

Ironizing  is  the  second  great  process  in 
making  Ironized  Yeast.  The  dried  yeast 
concentrate  is  treated  with  three  distinct 
kinds  of  iron.  This  strengthening  tonic 
element  helps  make  weak,  watery  Mood 
rich  and  red — enabling  it  to  better  carry 
strength  and  nourishment  to  the  tissues 
and  poisons  and  wastes  from  the  tissues! 

Triple-tested 

Not  only  is  Ironized  Yeast  manufactured 
by  trained  experts,  but  it  is  triple-tested 
for  actual  health-building  results.  These 
tests  are  made  by  our  own  scientists,  by

Hollywood's  Heroes  Are  Baffled 
by  Joan  Blondell 


{Continued  from  page  19) 


Your  First  Impression's  Wrong 

JOAN'S  very  appearance,  her  conversation 
and  her  manner,  on  the  screen  or  in  per- 
son, bring  up  still  other  points  not  cov- 
ered in  her  history,  to  add  to  the  confusion. 
The  mere  glimpse  of  her  charms  would  cause 
any  real,  two-fisted  gentleman  to  exclaim  in 
dismay:  "That  girl  virtuous?  Alas — it's  a 
downright  sin!" 

However,  it  is  Joan,  herself,  who  explains 
all  the  seeming  contradictions — not  so  much 
by  words  as  by  the  way  she  treats  you  when 
she  knows  you. 

She  is  a  girl  who  has  gone  through  Hell 
unsmirched. 

"A  modern  girl  isn't  marred  or  morally 
disintegrated  by  unpleasant  experiences,  be- 
cause she  isn't  taught  to  dread  them,"  Joan 
explains.  "A  really  old-fashioned  girl  would 
go  to  pieces  in  the  first  tight  spot,  because 
of  her  overwhelming  dread  of  what  might 
happen.  The  first  touch  of  life  destroys  her 
moral  fiber,  because  she  thinks  it  has 
branded  her." 

Joan's  life  offers  illustrations  for  the  text. 
For  instance,  there  was  that  dark  and 
stormy  night,  down  in  Austin,  Texas,  when 
a  maniac  stole  into  her  hotel  room,  with  an 
axe  in  his  hand.  Joan  first  dented  his  cra- 
nium with  a  heavy  lamp,  then  made  sure 
that  he  was  "out"  cold,  and  last  of  all, 
fainted.  The  old-fashioned  girl  would  have 
fainted  first ! 

No  one  in  Hollywood  has  heard  Joan  use 
even  the  most  casual,  conversational,  harm- 
less "cuss"  word.  Vet  she  stands  by  listen- 
ing, without  protest,  to  the  best  efforts  of 
the  movie  electricians.  No  restraint  is 
shown  before  her,  and  she  has  been  seen  to 
smile  admiringly  at  a  particularly  prolonged 
or  brilliant  effort. 

"Swearing?"  Joan  echoes  in  mild  sur- 
prise. "Oh,  yes,  swearing.  Well,  it  doesn't 
annoy  me  much.  I've  heard  it  done  by 
experts!" 

Neither  Shocking  Nor  Shocked 

IT  is  equally  true  that  Joan  doesn't  tell 
risque  stories.  She  is  perfectly  frank  and 
open  in  conversation,  but  seemingly,  there 
isn't  a  nasty  thought  in  her  head.  Yet  she 
listens,  often  with  a  knowing  smile,  while 
the  Hollywood  minstrels  sing  their  lays. 
Nor  can  one  detect  in  her  face  or  manner, 
as  she  does  so,  the  slightest  trace  of  embar- 
rassment. One  fancies,  however,  that  there 
are  few  subtleties,  few  clever  double-mean- 
ings, that  escape  this  cosmopolitan  creature, 
whose  pet  pastime,  between  pictures,  is  to 
go  off  alone  in  a  dilapidated  old  car,  dressed 
in  sweater  and  knickers,  exploring. 

Yes,  Joan  has  been  everywhere,  and  has 
seen  everything,  and  yet  has  emerged  ut- 
terly clean-minded !  Or,  as  she  herself  would 
prefer  to  put  it,  she  has  seen  so  much,  and 
been  so  many  places,  that  necessarily  she  is 
clean-minded. 

Her  frankness  is  amazing.  There  is  ab- 
solutely nothing  coy  about  her.  She  is 
logical,  natural,  and  intensely  human.  All 
the  mean  little  repressions  and  silly  bash- 
fulness  of  the  adolescent  girl,  it  seems,  Joan 
never  knew.  Perhaps  that  is  why  she  has, 
at  the  age  of  twenty-three,  a  poise,  a 
healthiness  of  mind,  a  confidence,  and  a 
moral  cleanness  that  are  the  envy  of  Holly- 
wood. 

Her  studio,  Warner  Brothers,  is  in  a  bit 
of  a  quandary  about  Joan's  solitary,  and 
apparently  serious,  love  affair.  After  her 
stage  success  in  "Penny  Arcade,"  the  or- 
ganization signed  her,  put  her  into  fifteen 
screen  roles  of  rising  importance  in  less  than 


that  many  months,  has  just  co-starred  her 
with  James  Cagney  in  "The  Crowd  Roars" 
and  now  is  starring  her  alone  in  "The 
Famous  Ferguson  Case."  High  hopes  are 
entertained  for  her  future,  but  Joan's  regard 
for  George  Barnes,  cameraman,  appears  to 
be  one  tiny  fly  in  the  ointment.  George  is 
a  nice  chap  and  all  that,  but  the  studio 
officials  wonder  what  effect  marriage  may 
have  upon  Joan's  career. 

What  She  Thinks  of  Marriage 

IT  is  safe  to  wager  that  Joan's  producers, 
however  conventional  they  may  be,  have 
been  hoping  that  she  would  not  be  too  con- 
ventional in  this  matter,  at  this  critical 
stage  of  her  career.  Being  engaged  to 
George  is  one  thing;  wedding  him  another. 
Ordinary  marriages  aren't  news,  and  pla- 
tonic  friendships  often  are;  but  this  is  re- 
versed in  the  case  of  film  stars.  Marriages 
are  the  sure-fire,  world-wide  publicity  sen- 
sation; friendships  are  too  common  to 
attract  much  attention. 

Joan  doesn't  believe  that  the  public  ob- 
jects to  the  marriages  of  its  favorites. 
Speaking  in  generalities,  not  necessarily  of 
her  own  case,  she  remarks: 

"What  difference  does  marriage  make  in 
screen  romance — when  it  doesn't  even  make 
any  difference  in  real-life  romances  these 
days? " 

That's  spoken  almost  sadly,  Joan.  Al- 
most as  an  old-fashioned  girl — with  modern 
improvements! — might  say  it. 

"I  sometimes  think  of  life  and  the  world 
as  a  huge,  round  honeycomb,"  says  Joan 
with  a  whimsical  twinkle.  "Some  of  us 
wander  around  over  it,  poking  into  its  cells 
in  our  search  for  honey;  others  stay  all 
their  lives  in  one  or  two  cells,  and  spend 
their  time  giving  the  wandering  ones  free 
advice. 

"Of  course,  it  is  those  who  go  poking 
about  who  most  frequently  encounter  the 
peevish  end  of  a  bee,  but  they  also  find  the 
most  honey.  The  ones  who  are  stung  last 
and  worst,  however,  in  my  opinion,  are  the 
stay-at-homes  who  play  safe  and  miss  half 
of  life.  Giving  advice  on  how  to  live  to 
others  is  a  sorry  substitute  for  living, 
oneself. 

"I've  wandered,  and  sipped  the  honey, 
and  haven't  always  escaped  the  stings.  But 
I've  always  found  that  the  honey  I  got  was 
worth  the  stinging  I  got." 

At  any  rate,  stings  of  experience  haven't 
saddened  Joan,  nor  in  any  other  way  bur- 
dened her.  She  isn't  afraid  of  anything — 
least  of  all,  work.  No  one  can  be  around 
her  long  without  realizing  that  this  smiling 
bit  of  feminine  temptation  is  truly  happy, 
healthy  and  carefree.  Perhaps  that  is  be- 
cause she  regrets  nothing  that  life  has  ever 
done  to  her. 

Doesn't  Regret  Her  Roaming 

"T'M  not  sorry  I  spent  my  girlhood  trav- 
JL  eling  all  over  the  world  in  variety 
shows,  spending  my  first  twelve  birthdays 
in  twelve  different  countries,"  she  explains. 
"I'm  glad,  too,  that  my  education  came  in 
weekly  snatches,  from  Seattle  to  Cape 
Town  and  Singapore  to  Rio,  and  that  at 
the  'tender'  age  of  fifteen  I  ran  off  to 
Australia  on  a  cattle-boat,  instead  of  set- 
tling down  at  a  regular  school. 

"Everything  that  has  happened  to  me 
has  been  good,  although  some  of  the  bless- 
ings came  pretty  well  disguised.  If  it 
weren't  for  gentlemanly  mashers,  for  in- 
stance— and  how  I  hate  'em! — I  might 
never  have  had  the  thrill  of  'socking'  a  man

Clara  Bow's  First  Interview 
Since  Her  Marriage 

{Coittinwil  from  page    : 

sentenced  to  prison  didn't  help.  I  was  ex- 
hausted, bewildered.  Every  time  I  heard  a 
>y  shouting  something,  it  sounded 
like  'Clara  Bow."  I  was  utterly  lost,  hi 
terror-stricken.  Rex  was  as  kind  to  me  as  a 
mother,  a  lover  and  a  big  brother  rolled  into 
one.    I   left   Paramount — and  that  was  the 

thing  I  could  have  done.    Now   I  was 
free,  and   I  ran  away  from  all  curious  eyes, 
ill  vindictive  tongues — and  just  trieel 
to  be  mysell  again.     My  morale  was  com- 
pletely shattered. 

"Later  on  when  I  felt  better,  I  would 
have  married  Rex.  But  he  wasn't  working, 
and  he  wanted  to  have  a  contract — and 
money  saved  before  we  were  mar- 
ried, lie  was  afraid  that  the  world  would 
say  he  married  me  for  my  money.  That 
amused  me — to  be  afraid  of  gossip  as  mild 
as  that  after  what  had  already  been  said 
about  me!    I  was  hurt-proof  by  now. 

"Hut  we  waited — and  Rex  saved  his 
money  and  was  working  right  along,  lie 
told  me  that  now  he  could  pay  his  share  of 
household  expenses.  I  was  sure  that  Rex 
was  different — that  he  had  interests  in  life 
thai  were  worth-while.  I  knew  that  he 
would  provide  for  my  future — and  so  1 
told  him  that  if  he  would  put  up  with  me, 
ill  and  nervous  as  I  was,  I'd  gladly  marry 
him.     And    now    I    belong   to    Rex   wholly — ■ 

er!  If  anything  ever  happened  to  our 
I  a<  li   other,   it  would   simply  finish 

me."

The  Age  of  FAT 

Need  No  Longer  Be  Feared 


•  Soon  after  30,  multitudes  of  people  gain  excess 
fat.  Many  at  earlier  ages.  A  great  reason  lies  in 
a  weakened  gland,  which  largely  controls  nutri- 
tion. Food  that  .should  create  fuel  and  energy 
goes  to  fat. 

Since  this  discovery,  doctors  the  world  over 
feed  this  gland  factor  to  the  over-fat.  Slender 
figures  all  around  you  are  due  to  this  method  now. 

In  Tablet  Form 

Marmola  prescrip- 
tion tablets  present  this 
new-day  method  in 
ideal  form.     A  famous 
laboratory  prepares 
them  to  lit  the  average 
case.  People  have  used 
them  for  24  years — mil- 
lions of  boxes  of  them. 
The  results  are  seen  in 
every  circle.    Those  slender  figures, 
now  so  common,  are  not  due  to  starv- 
ing. Every  box  contains  the  formula. 
So  users   know,   and   doctors  know, 
just  how  Marmola  acts.  You  are  tak- 
ing in  Marmola  what  the  best  physi- 
cians Use.

light  fat  in  this  modern  way.  Com- 
bat the  cause.  Take  Marmola — four 
tablets  daily — until  weight  comes 
down  to  normal.  As  the  fat  goes, 
watch  your  vim  come  back.  Then 
tell  your  friends  what  did  it.  Don't 
wait  longer — start  this  right  way  now.

some  of  the  mistakes  that  have  harmed  me 
so  greatly. 

"I've  never  put  a  lot  of  stock  in  fame  or 
adulation.  I  know  that  they're  here  for  a 
day.  Every  person  is  a  straw  in  the  wind. 
None  of  us  counts — for  long. 

"So  what  I  want  out  of  life  now  is  some- 
thing that  will  last.  First  of  all — I  want  a 
baby.  Rex  and  I  both  have  simple  tastes. 
We  don't  need  or  even  want  a  lot  of  money. 
"We  want  to  settle  down  to  a  quiet,  ordinary 
existence.  A  home,  a  child  or  two,  a  good 
husband — that's  what  every  woman  wants. 
That's  what  /  want!" 

Clara  Bow's  less  domestic  hopes  are  for 
one  good  picture.  To  that  end,  her  days  are 
now  spent  in  reading  scripts,  in  talking  to 
friends  and  producers  about  stories.  There 
is  no  truth  to  reports  that  she  has  given  up 
pictures  and  will  retire. 

This  rumor,  like  others  about  the  state  of 
Clara's  health,  has  no  doubt  arisen  from  the 
fact  that  the  newlyweds  have  been  keeping 
very  much  to  themselves — as  newlyweds 
anywhere  are  likely  to  do. 

As  his  wife's  business  manager,  Rex  Bell 
has  turned  down  important  offers  from  the 
stage,  screen  and  vaudeville,  totaling  ap- 
proximately a  million  dollars.  Money  is  not 
a  factor  to  either  of  them.  So  a  twenty- 
thousand-dollar-a-week  offer  from  a  New 
York  producer  went  by  the  boards,  and 
flattering  screen  contracts  remain  unsigned. 
They  both  feel  that  Clara's  next  picture 
should  be  a  perfect  blend  of  suitable  story, 
fine  cast  and  good  mounting.  Tentative 
plans  call  for  the  organization  of  the  Clara 
Bow  Productions,  as  soon  as  story  and 
business  arrangements  are  such  as  to  meet 
with  the  approval  of  Rex  and  Clara. 

Her  One  Big  Ambition 

THERE  will  be  one  picture — possibly 
two.  In  any  event,  only  enough  to  give 
her  a  trust  fund  of  five  hundred  thousand 
dollars,  so  that  she  can  live  as  she  wants  to 
live — for  Rex  and  for  herself. 

"And  when  I  retire,  it  will  not  be  because 
I  am  through,  but  because  I  want  to  stop. 
And  I'll  still  be  a  star — but  not  a  dimming 
star.  I  want  to  be  remembered  as  I  am 
now." 

Which  is  to  say  that  she  will  be  young — 
as  emotion-compelling  as  ever.  Because 
Clara  to-day  is  no  whit  less  exquisite  than 
when  she  was  the  toast  of  the  world.  She 
may  be  a  trifle  heavier  because  of  her 
inactivity  the  last  few  months,  but  that  is 
all.    The  flaming  charm  is  there. 

As  a  corollary  to  her  fascinating  new  en- 
thusiasms: "Rex  is  teaching  me  the  value 
of  money.  He  makes  me  sign  all  my  own 
checks — and  we  know  just  exactly  where 
our  money  goes.  I  pay  half  of  all  household 
expenses — Rex  the  other  half.  And  pretty 
soon  he's  going  to  pay  all  of  them." 

She  is  the  typical  young  bride,  delighted 
with  her  husband's  progress — dreaming  of 
his  future  achievements. 

"I've  had  glamour,"  Clara  points  out, 
"and  it  didn't  wear.  In  marriage  I've  found 
reality  and  happiness." 

As  for  Rex:  "My  object  in  life  is  to  keep 
Clara  happy.  I  couldn't  possibly  be  happy 
if  she  were  not."  And  again  he  will  tell  you: 
"I  never  had  any  worries  until  I  took  over 
Clara's  affairs,  but  even  worries  are  in  a 
sense  a  joy — because  they  are  for  Clara. 
Her  worries  are  my  worries  now,  thank 
heaven!" 

And  yet  again:  "I  married  Clara  because 
I  adore  her.  She's  not  the  red-headed  'It' 
girl  to  me,  but  a  sweet,  gorgeous  pal!" 

Clara  Bow,  the  "It"  girl,  has  come  down 
a  long  road  made  desperate  by  mistakes  and 
a  world's  cruelties.  Now  she  is  home — safe. 
Meet  Mrs.  Rex  Bell!

You  don't  have  to  tell  the  woman  who 
has  switched  to  Camels  the  benefits  of  a 
fresh  cigarette. 

She  knows  all  about  it  —  that's  the  rea- 
son she  stays  switched. 

She  has  learned  that  the  fine,  fragrant, 
sun -ripened  choice  tobaccos  in  Camels 
have  a  perfectly  preserved  delicate  mild- 
ness all  their  own. 

She  knows  by  a  grateful  throat's  testi- 


mony what  a  relief  this  smooth,  cooi, 
slow- burning  fresh  cigarette  means  to 
sensitive  membrane. 

Camels  are  fresh  in  the  Camel  Humidor 
Pack  because  they  are  made  fresh,  fresh 
with  natural  moisture  and  natural  flavors 
—  they  are  never  parched  or  toasted. 

If  you  don't  know  what  the  Reynolds 
method  of  scientifically  applying  heat  so 
as  to  avoid  parching  or  toasting  means  to 
the  smoker  —  switch  to  Camels  for  just 
one  day — then  leave  them — if  you  can.

Practically  every  bit  of  food  you  eat 
is  soft,  cooked  food— far  too  creamy 
to  give  your  gums  the  stimulation 
they  must  have.  Your  sums  have  been 
getting  lazier  and  weaker  with  every 
year.  Now  they  tend  to  bleed.  You 
have  "pink  tooth  brush." 

And  "pink  tooth  brush"  dulls  the 
teeth.  Moreover,  it  can  lead  tog 
vitis,  pyorrhea,  Vincent 's  disease  and 
other  serious  gum  troubles.  It  may 
even  endanger  the  soundness  of  your

The  ziratol,  the  toning  agent  in

What  Will 

JOAN   CRAWFORD'S 

Handwriting 

Reveal  To 

LOUISE  RICE? 

On  Page  51  of  this  issue  you 
will  discover  what  Marlene 
Dietrich  is  really  like — from 
Louise  Rice,  world-famous 
graphologist  and  author  of 
many  books  on  the  science  of 
reading  character  from  hand- 
writing. From  the  German 
.star's  handwriting  alone,  Miss 
Rice  tells  you  about  Marlene's 
thoughts  and  emotions. 
Also,  on  Page  51,  you  will 
learn  how  you  may  obtain  a 
Louise  Rice  Grapho-scope — 
and  analyze  your  own  hand- 
writing (and  character). 
And  then  watch  for  Louise 
Rice's  analysis  of  the  hand- 
writing of  Joan  Crawford — 
"the  star  who  is  tortured  by 
Hollywood  gossip."  Coming  in 
the  June  MOVIE  CLASSIC  I

Between   Ourselves 


TRIP  the  women  stars  of  their 
glamour.  Take  away  Garbo's 
mystery,  Janet  Gaynor's  wistfulness, 
Marlene  Dietrich's  slumbrous  pas- 
sion, Norma  Shearer's  poise,  and  so 
on  down  the  line.  And  who,  in  the 
end,  are  the  great  personalities  of  the 
screen — the  personalities  that  grow 
richer  as  time  whisks  by?  It  you 
should  ask  me — and  I'm  not  saying 
that  you  are — I'd  nominate  Mary 
Pickford,  Joan  Crawford  and  Marie 
Dressier. 


MARIE,  though  "full  of  years" 
and  ailing  off  and  on,  has  a 
gusty  love  of  life  that  a  Jackie  Cooper 
might  well  envy.  But  Mary  and 
Joan — particularly  Mary — are  great 
personalities  in  an  equally  rare  way. 
Where  most  stars  sit  back,  content 
with  the  fame  and  fortune  they  have 
won  and  the  carloads  of  mail  they 
receive,  Mary  and  Joan  are  restless. 
For  them,  glamour  is  not  enough. 
Their  accomplishments  to  date  are 
not  enough.  They  are  not  self-satis- 
fied. They  must  go  on  improving 
themselves,  developing  their  talents, 
seeking  new  worlds  to  conquer. 


IT  is  a  question  if  any  other  woman, 
with  the  possible  exception  ot 
Joan  Crawford,  will  ever  be  a  star  as 
long  as  Mary  Pickford  has  been. 
Yerv,  very  few  of  them  have  the 
brains  of  a  Mary  Pickford,  or  the 
modesty,  or  the  faculty  of  frank 
self-appraisement.  The  years  have 
done  nothing  to  Mary  Pickford  ex- 
cept to  make  her  a  woman  more  worth 
knowing. 

I  TALKED  with  Mary  the  other 
day  for  half  an  afternoon.  In  the 
room  was  a  piano.  I  asked  her  if  she 
played.  She  said,  "  I'm  learning  how. 
I'm  taking  lessons."  There  you  have 
the  secret  of  Maty  Pickford's  great- 
ness. She's  always  willing  to  learn! 

TALKING  with  her,  you  forget 
that  she  is  an  actress.  That  is 
because  of  her  eyes.  They  are  frank. 
Thev  tell,  even  more  eloquently 
than  speech,  of  the  happiness  of  her 
married  life.  Between  you  and  me, 
there  isn't  an  ounce  of  truth  in 
those  "divorce"  rumors — and  never 
is  likely  to  be. 


THE  New  York  Daily  News 
recently  held  its  annual  screen 
popularity  contest,  and  again,  lor  the 
second    time,    Charles    Farrell    and 


Janet  Gaynor  romped  home  the 
winners.  Clark  Gable  and  Joan  Craw- 
ford were  second.  The  latter  news  is 
quite  encouraging.  Clark  and  Joan 
are  on  their  way  to  much  bigger 
things.  Charlie  and  Janet,  lovable 
as  they  are,  are  beginning  to  repeat 
themselves. 


IF  you  are  against  censorship,  and 
all  for  the  freedom  of  the  films,  the 
way  I  am,  you  won't  miss  the  story, 
"Shall  the  Movies  Take  Orders  from 
the  Underworld?"  in  this  issue. 
Moreover,  you  will  demand  to  see 
"Scarface,"  the  picture  that  puts 
the  finger  on  gangland.  But  don't 
think  that,  by  doing  so,  you  will  be 
helping  only  Howard  Hughes  in  his 
lone  battle  with  the  censors.  You 
will  be  helping  every  producer  and 
every  writer  and  every  player  in 
1  Iollvwood. 


THE  producers  are  honest.  The 
writers  are  honest.  The  players 
are  honest.  They  all  want  to  give 
you  honest  pictures — pictures  as 
honest  as  the  newspapers  and  books 
you  read  and  the  stage  plays  that 
you  see.  The  reformers  won't  always 
permit  them  to  do  this.  How  much 
longer  are  you  and  I  going  to  stand 
for  it  ? 


IF  "Scarface"  goes  over — and  I'll 
be  disappointed  in  America  if  it 
doesn't — the  fame  of  three  of  its 
cast  will  be  made.  I'm  thinking  of 
Paul  Mum,  who  plays  the  title  sole; 
George  Raft,  who  had  just  signed  up 
to  be  Valentino's  "double"  when  the 
great  Latin  died,  and  who  now  is 
starting  on  his  own  in  talkies;  and 
Ann  Dvorak,  whom  you  have  al- 
ready seen  briefly  in  "Sky  Devils." 
Remember  these  three  names — and 
what  I  have  said.

type  of  role,  but  she  adds  that  her  fa- 
vorite actress  is  Helen  Hayes.  I'm 
interested  in  Tala  right  aw7ay.  And 
you?

Marie's  Miraculous  Change 

ABOUT  ten  years  ago,  I  watched  a  too 
heavy,  a  too  corseted,  a  too  boisterous 
actress  sell  her  antics  to  a  bored  audience, 
as  she  clowned  her  way  up  and  down  the 
Keith  stage  in  Washington,  D.  C.  She 
simply  did  not  register.  Just  another  "has 
been,"  hating  to  give  up.  The  "has  been" 
was  .Marie  Dressier. 

This  alternoon  I  saw  this  same  Marie 
Dressier  again  in  the  wonderful  dramatiza- 
tion of  "Emma."  I  endeavored  to  brush 
the  tears  away  unnoticed.  The  audience 
sobbed  softly.  It  wasn't  just  a  picture.  It 
was  real  life. 

I  do  not  know  just  what  has  wrought  this 
miraculous  change  in  Marie  Dressier,  nor 
how  pathos  and  humor,  blended  together, 
happened  to  be  written  so  strongly  in  her 
countenance,  nor  how  she  is  able  to  hold  her 
shoulders  as  if  the  weight  of  the  world  were 
resting  upon  them,  but  this  I  do  know — as 
long  as  such  characters  exist  in  moving 
pictures,  they  can  never  die.  They  are  due 
for  a  Golden  Era  heretofore  uncharted  and 
unexplored.

Beery — School-marm's  Weakness 

I'M  a  small  town  school-marm,  so  by  all 
that's  right  and  proper  I  shouldn't  even 
be  reading  a  Movie  Classic,  but  I  do — 
regularly.  I  suppose,  too,  since  I've  been 
able  to  vote  for  some  odd  years  and  still 
write  my  name  with  a  Miss,  I  should  be 
thrown  into  spasms  of  ecstacy  at  the  mere 
sight  of  Clark  Gable,  Maurice  Chevalier, 
or  any  other  of  our  screen  lovers.  Not  so. 
(Though  I  do  love  the  way  Chevalier  rolls 
his  eyes  in  that  naughty  French  way  and 
the  way  he  cocks  his  straw  hat.) 

My  hero  is  none  other  than  our  big  old 
burly,  rough  exterior,  soft  interior,  inimi- 
table Wallace  Beery.  I'd  rather  see  him  cuss 
under  his  breath  any  day  than  see  a 
thousand  Barrymores  make  love.  When 
Beery's  on  the  set,  I  have  eyes  for  no  one 
else.  And  when  I  break  down  and  confess 
that  I  wept  real,  honest-to-goodness,  briny 
tears  at  that  closing  scene  in  "The  Champ" 
— old  hard-hearted  me  who  can  flunk  a  kid 
in  English  without  a  flicker — well,  you  know 
that  he's  got  something.

Give  Thanks  for  Pichel 

CHALK  up  another  mark  for  our  new 
character  actor,  Irving  Pichel.  The 
man  who  knows  how  to  play  his  role  of  cold- 
blooded villain,  and  who  draws  his  charac- 
ters with  deft,  unerring  strokes  to  enchain 
our  imagination.  Perhaps  you  have  seen 
him  as  the  upright  Senator-father  in  "Two 
Kinds  of  Women,"  Maybe  you  saw  him  as 
the  polished  man-of-the-world  in  "The 
Cheat,"  or  the  half-wit  in  "Murder  by  the 
Clock,"  or,  as  the  straight-laced  farmer- 
husband  in  "The  Right  to  Love."  There's 
more,  but  this  will  give  you  a  measure  of 
Irving  Pichel's  versatility.  His  voice  is  a 
magnificent  instrument,  capable  of  gripping 
volume,  capable  again  of  delighting  tender- 
ness. But  not  only  with  his  voice  does  he 
interpret  his  parts,  but  gives  all  of  himself. 
He  fairly  fires  his  roles  at  you,  and  living 
them  as  he  does,  gives  them  life  and  warmth. 
Irving  Pichel — the  talkies'  answer  to  the 
fans'  plea  for  "something  different."

What's  Wrong? 

RECENTLY  I  had  promised  myself  that 
.  the  next  time  I  heard  the  lovers  in  a 
picture  address  one  another  as  "  My  Sweet," 
I  would  take  out  a  gun  and  literally  shoot 
myself,  or  take  a  first  class  jump  in  the 
nearest  lake,  but  last  night  was  the  straw 
that  broke  the  camel's  back.  I  went  to  see 
"Doctor  Jekyll  and  Mr.  Hyde,"  a  story 
supposed  to  have  been  written  years  and 
years  ago,  with  all  in  it  everything  but 
modern  and  when  the  words  "My  Sweet" 
had  never  been  thought  of,  and  there  was 
Fredric  March,  saying,  "My  Sweet." 

When  I  came  home  that  evening,  being  of 
curious  mind,  I  asked 
my  grandmother  (I 
imagined  she  was  quite 
modern  in  her  younger 
days)  if  the  words  "My 
Sweet"  were  familiar 
to  her.  She  doesn't 
know  yet  what  I 
was  talking  about. 
There  must  be  some- 
thing wrong  some 
where. 


"My  Sweet"  and 
"Darling."  Can't  you 
just  hear  them  saying 
it?

Then,  For  You,  The  Beauty  of  Mystical, 
Glowing  Princess  Pat  Duo-Tone  Rouge 

By  Patricia  Gordon 

A  new  thought  .  .  .  to  give  color  first  place  over 
features  ...  as  the  "measure  of  your  beauty?"  Yet  how 

it  is.  And  how  comforting.  For  while  your  features 
may  not  be  alterable,  glorious  color  always  is  yours  for 
the  taking  .  .  .  through  rouge! 

Ah,  yes;  but  not  the  usual  rouge.  For,  remember,  this 
new  color  thai  measures  beauty  must  be  radiant,  glow- 
ing. It  must  not  appear  to  be  rouge  at  all.  It  must 
"  color  corning  from  within  the  skin.  It  must  have  all 
the  fidelity  of  a  natural  blush,  the  same  soft,  thrilling 
modulation;  the  same  exquisite  blending  that  leave-  no 
outline.  It  inu-t  be  vivid,  sparkling,  daring,  as  much 
bo  as  you  elect,  but  absolutely  natural. 

Can  there  Possibly  be  such  Marvelous  Rouge?    Can 
there  be  such  rouge?  You've  never  used  one?  All  have  I. ecu 

at   least  somewhat  obvious  .  .  .  many  actually  "painty," 
dull,  flat,  to  be  detected  instantly.    Yes,  but  these  have 
been  .-imply  the  usual  >>  ■  /<■  >  rouges.    But  Princess  Pat  is 
lii  0-TONE.    The  only  Duo-Tom  rouge  .  .  .  and  therefore 
absolutely  different  from  any  otht  r  rouge  you  ever  knew. 

Duo-Tone,  then.  What  is  this  magical  secret?  It  means  thai 
Princi  Pal  rouge  (every  shade)  is  composed  of  two  (list met 
tones,  perfectly  blended  into  one.  There  is  a  mysterious 
undertone.  It  matches  your  skin  tone  ...  perfectly.  There  is 
cinating  overtone.  It  gives  forth  the  wondrous,  vibrant, 
glowing  color  that  seems  not  rouge  at  all,  but  actually  color 
that  is  your  very  own! 

Duo-Tone  Ends  "One  Shade"  Choice.    The  Duo-Tone 

'i   makes  an  entirely  new  art  of  choosing  rouge.    Any 
one  of   the   eight    Princess   Pal    shades  will   per- 
fectly harmonize  with  your  type,  no  matter  what  thai

Tipping  You  Off 

Little    Low-Downs    On    The    Stars 


By  J.  E.  R. 


LONDON  hears  that  Tallulah  Bankhead 
and  Joel  McCrea  are  going  to  be  wed; 
"  but  Hollywood  and  Tallulah  say  'tain't 
so .  .  .  .  Walter  YVinchell  keeps  insisting 
that  Mrs.  Clark  Gable  is  having  long  talks 
with  her  lawyer;  and  Hollywood  doubts 
that,  too.  .  .  .  Ronald  Colman  came  back 
from  England  via  Shanghai,  where,  he  re- 
ports, there  has  been  a  real  war  in  progress. 
.  .  .  No  one  seems  to  know  if  he  was  di- 
vorced this  trip,  or  not.  .  .  .  Charlie  Chap- 
lin, when  last  heard  from,  also  was  heading 
back  to  Hollywood  via  the  Orient.  \\  it  h 
him  was  Sydney  Chaplin — not  the  son,  but 
the  brother — which  proves  that  they're  pals, 
after  all.  .  .  .  Dolores  Del  Rio,  back  from  a 
location  trip  to  Hawaii,  denies  that  the 
Islands  are  un- 
safe for  white 
women.  So  there! 


vinced  they  would.  ,  .  .  Peggy  Shannon, 
once  hailed  as  "a  second  Clara  Bow"  at 
Paramount,  is  now  at  Fox — and  you'll  next 
see  her  opposite  James  Dunn.  Jimmy,  by 
the  way,  is  healthier  than  the  gossips  would 
have  you  believe.

Joan  Bennett  became  Mrs.  Gene  Markey

Mrs.  Ian  Keith  is  now  Miss  Ethel  Clayton

.  .  .  Gloria  Swan- 
son,  with  a  thrill 
in  her  voice, 
tells  the  press 
she  will  soon  be 
a  mother  again. 


The    reason    why 


you 

haven't  seen  Gene  Raymond  since  "La- 
dies of  the  Big  House"  is  that  Gene,  who 
w-as  known  on  the  stage  as  Raymond  Guion, 
has  been  trying  to  settle  his  stage  contract. 
.  .  .  Anita  Louise,  who  has  been  kept  idle 
on  contract  since  "Heaven  on  Earth,"  was 
in  the  mood  to  accept  a  bid  from  England, 
until  she  was  offered  a  role  in  the  new  Garbo 
film,  "As  You  Desire  Me."  .  .  . 


Clara  Bow,  who  has  been  turning  down 
offers  right  and  left,  has  just  bought  a  story 
called  "Souls  in  Pawn,"  by  Charles  Furth- 
man,  who  wrote  the  scenario  for  "It."  She 
may  produce  it,  herself.  .  .  .  Mae  Clarke  is 
the  latest  star  to  have  a  breakdown  from 
overwork — but  the  girl  just  wouldn't  take 
time  out  for  a  vacation.  .  .  .  Al  Jolson  has 
been  asking  his  stage  audiences  if  they'd  like 
to  see  him  in  another  picture,  and  he's  con- 


Gilbert  Roland  has  been  so  lonely  since 
Norma  Talmadge  left  for  New  York  and 
Paris,  with  the  announced  intention  of  get- 
ting a  nice,  friendly  divorce  from  Joseph 
Schenck,  that  he  has  been  calling  on  Norma's 
mother.  .  .  Pola  Negri  still  insists  that  she 
13  going  to  marry  "a  wealthy  Chicagoan" 
in  June.  But  what  we  want  to  know  is:  When 
is  she  going  to  make  another  picture?  .  .  . 
James  Cagney's  new  ambition  is  to  see 
Europe — with  the  missus,  of  course.  .  .  .  You 
who  have  had  the  "flu"  during  the  late  la- 
mented winter  can  sympathize  with  Warner 
Baxter,  Marian  Marsh,  Arline  Judge,  and 
Mitzi  Green.  .  .  .  The  estate  of  the  late 
Rudolph  Valentino,  once  estimated  at  a 
million,  is  now  counted  at  $130,000.  .  .  . 
Uncle  Sam  won't  be  getting  so  much  in- 
come tax  coin  from  Hollywood  this  year 
as  last.  And  maybe  that  will  mean  that 
you  and  I  will  pay  more  amusement 
taxes !

Our  Hollywood 

EIGH  BORS 


GOINGS-ON    AMONG    THE    PLAYERS 


By     MARQUIS 

NOW   that   option    time    is 
rolling  around  once  more, 
Greta   Garbo,   Hollywood's   official   mystery  lady,   is   re- 
ported to  be  going  coy  again  about  signing  her  name  on 
the  dotted  line.    Chat  floats  up  and  down  the  boulevards 
that  "Greta  go  home  now." 

Somehow,  I  just  can't  worry  about  Greta  signing  any 
more.  There  was  a  time  when  the  rumor  would  have  made 
my  blood  run  cold.  What,  no  more  Garbo?  Wotinell 
would  us  fan  writers  talk  about  if  she  went  back  to  Sweden  ? 
Now,  when  I  hear  it  I  just  eat  an  apple — a  nice,  big,  red 
apple,  and  forget  all  about  it. 


BUSBY 

selves  by  smoked  glasses?     The 
"specs"  are  as  conspicuous  asMa- 
hatma  Gandhi  at  a  Quaker  meeting.   Not,  of  course,  that 
Mr.  Gandhi  has  ever  been  to  a  Quaker  meeting. 


The  dark  rumors  that  she 
might  shake  the  dust  of  M-G- 
M  from  her  feet,  and  very 
profitable  pay-dirt  it  has  been, 
is  the  Garbo's  way  of  showing 
that  she  has  the  executive 
goat.  She  is  still  Garbo,  and  as 
long  as  she  has  an  exclusive 
product  to  sell,  she  will  wear 
the  pants  when  it  comes  to 
running  her  career. 

If  memory  serves  me  rightly, 
her  threats  about  not  signing 
in  the  past  have  brought  very 
nice  increases  in  salary.  She'll 
undoubtedly  get  it  again. 
She's  worth  it.  "Mata  Han" 
may  not  be  a  really  great  pic- 
ture, but  it  is  making  more 
money  than  the  Texas  oil 
fields.  No  studio  would  lose 
such  a  gold  mine  without  an 
awful  struggle.  Greta  could 
take  Leo,  the  M-G-M  lion, 
home  with  her  if  she  wanted  to. 


BEFORE  we  leave  Greta  to 
enjoy  her  contractual  ar- 
gument, or  to  take  her  sun- 
baths,  or  whatever  is  occupy- 
ing her  mind  at  the  moment,  it 
is  interesting  to  record  that  the 
Swedish  star,  with  a  woman 
friend,  attended  the  Mary 
\\  igman  dance  recital  in  Los 
Angeles.  The  event  was  one  ot 

the  swankiest  of  the  winter  season.  The  big  auditorium 
was  studded  with  ermine,  jewels,  and  Patou's  best.  Did 
Garbo  care?  You  know  she  didn't.  She  wore  that  tweed 
coat  and  old  slouch  hat,  and  had  a  swell  time  for  herself. 
If  you  didn't  notice  the  girl  in  the  informal  attire,  vou 
could  hardly  escape  trying  to  solve  the  identity  of  the 
person  behind  the  smoked  glasses.  Will  somebody  tell  me, 
if  they  aren't  too  busy,  why  people  try  to  disguise  them- 


Lilian  Bond's  idea  of  a  Spring  suit  is  a  swim  suit — 
and  are  her  Hollywood  neighbors  sorry?  She  looks 
in  healthy  trim  for  "The  Trial  of  Vivienne  Ware" 


GOOD  health  is  a  necessity  in  Hollywood,  and  if 
you  don't  believe  it,  just  spend  a  day  and  night  emot- 
ing in  front  of  the  camera.  The  waitress  who  juggles  hash 
all  day  has  a  picnic  by  comparison.  Being  of  such  primary 
importance,  some  of  the  health  recipes  are  a  lot  more  dras- 
tic than  Japan's  demands  upon 
China.  Grandma  kept  the 
kiddies  in  good  health  by  de- 
pending on  sulphur  and  mo- 
lasses and  good,  old-fashioned 
castor  oil.  (I  beg  your  pardon, 
old-fashioned,  but  scarcely 
good.)  Well,  Hollywood  is  a 
fancy  place,  and  I  suppose  you 
can  expect  fancy  prescriptions. 
Most  of  us  would  be  invalids 
for  life  before  we  would  sub- 
mit to  the  Louise  Closser  Hale 
procedure.  Mrs.  Hale  insists 
that  sleep  is  the  great  cure-all, 
and  when  she  woos  Morpheus 
(now,  don't  get  excited,  Gene- 
vieve) she  does  a  thorough  job 
of  it.  When  she  retires  she  puts 
pink  putty  in  her  ears  to  keep 
out  all  noises.  Then  she  uses  a 
narrow,  soft,  black  band  to  tie 
around  her  eyes,  to  shut  out  all 
light.  After  that  she  tries  to 
sleep.  How  she  keeps  from  be- 
ing completely  out  of  the  no- 
tion by  that  time  probably 
makes  another  story. 

The    other    prize    recipe    is 
Clive  Brook's  method  of  tak- 
ing cold  baths.     When  I  say 
cold  I  don't  mean  the  kind  of 
water  that  makes  you  and  me 
yell  when  it  comes  out  of  the 
cold  spigot.     Chve  puts  great 
hunks  of  ice  in  his  tub.      Lie 
says  it   is  great  stuff,   and,   I 
know,  you  will  be  quite  willing 
to  take  his  word  for  it.     That  is,  until  mid-July,  at  least. 
Carole  Lombard  seems  very  sensible  after  that.    She  just 
eats  spinach  every  day.    She  doesn't  really  mind  it  so  much, 
but  she  does  wish  that  it  didn't  taste  like  spinach. 

Warren  William  starts  the  day  off  by  drinking  the  juice 
of  two  lemons  in  a  glass  of  warm  water.     He'd  rather  do 
that  than  eat  spinach — or  prunes,  for  that  matter.

TO  REMOVE  CORNS 

USE  BLUE-JAY 

Ordinary  corn  pads  merely  cover  the  corn. 
They  cannot  remove  it  as  Blue-jay,  the  medi- 
cated corn  plaster,  does. 

If  yon  want  to  treat  your  corn  in  a  safe, 
dependable  way,  apply  a  Blue-jay  Corn  Plas- 
ter and  let  the  mild  medication  (note  picture 
above)  penetrate  the  corn  and  loosen  it  for 
easy  removal.  Blue-jay  not  only  removes 
corns  but  gives  instant  pain-relief,  because 
the  soft  felt  pad  prevents  shoe  friction  on  the 
tender  spot. 

Always  ask  for  this  medicated  plaster  — 
genuine  Blue-jay,  made  by  a  noted  surgical 
dressing  house.  All  druggists,  six  for  25c.

"Here  I  am.  stepping  out  of 
character  again.  And  it's  some- 
what of  an  occasion,  because 
I  don't  talk  for  publication 
often."  says  Edna  May  Oliver, 
who  makes  other  Hollywood 
comediennes  look  to  their  lau- 
rels with  her  newest  picture, 
"Ladies  of  the  Jury." 

LHer  deep  cultured  voice 
jfiBMBHOBI  nthusiasm.    Every 

sentence  is  illustrated  with  a 
gesture.  She  is  as  humorous  and  likable  as  her 
characters  on  the  screen. 

"I  don't  like  to  tell  too  much  about  myself  in  in- 
terviews. Miss  Garbo  has  the  right  idea.  A  clever 
woman.  .  .  .  An  actress  should  be  illusive  .  .  . 
mysterious.  .  .  .  Perhaps  the  public  tires  of  certain 
screen  favorites  simply  because  it  knows  too  much 
about  them — their  love  affairs  and  their  favorite 
bath  soap!" 

"But  don't  worry — I'm  not  going  to  do  a  Garbo. 
High  comedy  is  my  field.  My  hobby — making  peo- 
ple laugh!  .  .  .  I've  played  several  weepy  ladies, 
but  I  didn't  like  them." 

"More  details  about  myself?  ...  I  love  to  swim 
.  . .  and  hate  to  have  pictures  taken  ....  I've  lived  in 
New  York  for  years,  but  after  ten  days'  vacation 
there  this  winter  I  raced  back  to  Hollywood.  . . .  I'm 
afraid  the  charm  of  New  York  eludes  me!" 

"I  hate  having  dresses  made.  ...  I  love  parsnips 
.  .  .  symphony  orchestras  .  .  .  and  sniffing."

"Any  man  would  be  lucky  if  Lupe  fell  in  love  with 
him.  but  I'm  afraid  that  hasn't  happened  to  me," 
said  Randolph  Scott,  blond  young  Paramount  play- 
er, when  he  was  reported  as  being  engaged  to  la 
Velez. 

"We  have  been  out  six  or  seven  times  together 
but  I  am  too  busy  trying  to  be  a  success  to  fall  in 
love,"  he  added,  but  there  was  a  quizzical  glint  in 
his  gray-blue  eyes. 

"There  were  rumors  of  my  being  dropped  when 
months  went  by  without  my 
making  a  picture,  but  B.  P, 
Schulberg  told  me,  himself, 
that  he  has  big  plans  for  me. 
I  have  a  good  bit  in  'Sky 
Bride'  and  am  working  now 
in  the  new  George  Arliss  pic- 
ture. 

"I  haven't  appeared  before 
for  several  reasons.  Once  I 
was  slated  for  second  lead,  but 
they  found  I  was  taller  than 
the  lead  and  would  have  made 
him  —  Chester  Morris  —  look  silly."  Of  course  that 
wouldn't  do! 

Mr.  Arliss,  evidently,  didn't  mind  being  over- 
shadowed by  the  big  rangy  fellow  who  has  Holly- 
wood gossiping  more  than  it  has  since  the  days  of 
Joel  McCrea's  discovery. 

"It's  a  swell  break  at  last  and  I'm  determined  to 
make  good!"  Randolph  adds.  But  about  Lupe — 
there's  a  mystery!

THE  LOST  ^'ve  seeQ  Pictures  about  Hollywood  before  and 
groaned,  but  here  is  one  I'm  glad  I  didn't  miss. 
SQUADRON  It's  suspenseful  and  it's  bitter,  but  beneath  all 
its  melodrama  you'll  get  the  idea  that  Holly- 
wood has  a  cruel  side,  as  well  as  a  glamourous  one.  Richard  Dix, 
Joel  McCrea  and  Robert  Armstrong,  a  trio  of  ex-war  aviators  down 
on  their  luck,  find  their  way  to  Hollywood  and  become  stunt  fliers — 
and  that's  where  you  learn  how  air  pictures  are  sometimes  made. 
Eric  von  Stroheim  plays  the  part  of  a  director  who  specializes  in 
film  thrills,  even  though  they  cost  a  life  now  and  then.  The  cast  give 
the  picture  everything  they  have.  The  result  is  "a  dramatic  wallop." 


A   f  T[D  According  to  a  young   propheteer  who  has 

lately  made  Hollywood  goggle-eyed  with  her 
TO  MORROW  predictions,  Charles  Farrell  is  going  to  make 
his  biggest  hit  without  Janet  Gaynor.  "After 
Tomorrow"  isn't  it,  but  it's  a  step  in  the  right  direction.  Charlie 
loses  some  of  his  dignity  and  purity,  and  goes  human.  The  story 
again  concerns  young  love,  but  this  time  it  lays  stress  on  the  torment 
of  waiting  to  get  married.  In  fact,  it  hassome  of  the  most  skillful — 
and  delicate — sex  dialogue  I've  ever  had  the  pleasure  to  hear.  The 
only  trouble  with  the  picture  is  that  the  misfortunes  that  befall 
Charlie  and  Marian  Nixon  are  the  kind  that  make  women  weepy. 
Even  Marian  weeps.    A  little  too  much,  I  might  add. 


POLLY  OF 
THE   CIRCUS 


Marion  Davies  and  Clark  Gable  both 
changed  their  personalities  a  bit  to  fit  "Polly 
of  the  Circus."  Marion  changed  from  a 
comedienne  into  a  dramatic  actress,  and 
Clark  changed  from  a  dee-vine  he-man  into  a  he-man  divine.  She's 
a  circus  star  who's  injured,  and  he's  a  young  minister  in  whose  home 
she  recovers,  thus  becoming  the  common  enemy  of  every  woman  in 
the  parish.  There's  nothing  new  about  the  story — it  has  been  imi- 
tated too  often  since  its  first  appearance  in  silent  days.  It's  still 
sentimental.  I'm  happy  to  report  that  it's  also  sprightly.  And 
it's  novelty  to  see  Clark  making  love  wearing  his  collar  backward. 


Sky 


"Sky  Devils"  is  more  like  "Cock  of  the  Air"  than  like 
Howard  Hughes'  other  air  picture,  "Hell's  Angels" — 
DEVILS  but  even  more  like  "What  Price  Glory?",  if  you  know 
what  I  mean.  It's  he-man  comedy,  with  the  plot — 
such  as  there  is — whirling  around  the  enmity  of  two  air  corps  rookies 
(Spencer  Tracy  and  George  Cooper)  for  their  top  sergeant  (William 
Boyd).  I  didn't  think  they  could  squeeze  another  laugh  out  of  the 
familiar  theme,  but  the  boys  surprised  me;  in  fact,  they  amazed  me. 
The  comedy  moves  at  a  fast  clip,  and  there  is  some  spectacular  flying. 
But  the  big  moments  for  me  were  those  featuring  the  new  and  star- 
tling Ann  Dvorak,  who  looks  like  one  of  the  next  stars. 


ARSENE  When  a  picture  boasts  two  Barrymores,  it  should  by 
rights  be  twice  as  good  as  a  picture  with  just  one.  I 
LUPIN  wouldn't  say  that  "Arsene  Lupin"  is.  But  it  is  at 
least  twice  as  good  as  it  would  have  been  without 
them.  To  be  painfully  frank,  the  story  is  the  familiar  duel  of  wits 
between  the  smooth  crook  and  the  smooth  detective;  it  seldom  gets 
you  excited.  But  John  and  Lionel  make  up  for  the  shortcomings  of 
the  story  by  being  their  most  amusing  selves.  You  never  forget  for  a 
moment  who  they  are;  and  you  wonder  to  the  end  which  will  steal 
the  picture.  Personally,  I'd  call  it  a  tie — and  give  a  third  blue  ribbon 
to  Karen  Morley,  as  the  girl-detective  whom  John  captures. 


THE 

Wiser  Sex 


Seeing  isn't  believing,  so  far  as  "The  Wiser 
Sex"  is  concerned.  Despite  an  excellent  cast, 
it  just  doesn't  jell.  As  in  "Manslaughter," 
Claudette  Colbert  is  in  love  with  a  crusading 
district  attorney  (Melvyn  Douglas) — but  doesn't  go  to  prison  this 
time.  Douglas,  however,  is  headed  that  way,  thanks  to  some  under- 
world plotting  (by  William  Boyd  and  Libyan  Tashman) — until 
Claudette  does  a  little  detective  work.  It's  one  of  those  pictures  in 
which  the  principal  amusement  is  seeing  how  many  times  you  can 
guess  correctly  what  will  happen  next.  My  score  was  high,  I'm  sorry 
to  say,  particularly  when  Claudette  and  Lilyan  and  Melvyn  and 
William — in  about  that  order — all  did  nobly.

Both  rely  on  this  tooth  paste  to  keep  teeth  lovely 


Money  never  worries  one  woman.  She 
could  afford  to  pay  $10  a  tube  for  a  den- 
tifrice. Yet  Listenne  Tooth  Paste,  at 
256,  is  her  favorite. 

The  other  woman  does  some  pretty 
sharp  figuring  to  keep  out  of  debt.  If 
she  thought  a  costly  tooth  paste  would 
be  better  for  her  teeth,  she  would  buy 
it,  even  though  she  had  to  skimp  in 
other  directions  to  pay  for  it.  But  she, 
too,  uses  Listerine  Tooth  Paste. 

What  is  the  answer?  Simply  this: 
Women  in  every  walk  of  life  have  found 
by  actual  comparison  that  Listerine 
Tooth  Paste  achieves  superior  results. 
That,  in  every  way,  it  is  worthy  of  the 
great  name  it  bears.  Actually  more  than 
two  million  women  have  discarded 
fancy-priced  brands  in  favor  of  Listerine 
Tooth  Paste  at  25^. 

Do  not  take  our  word  for  its  merits. 
Let  the  product  speak  for  itself.  You 
alone  be  the  judge.  Compare  its  results 
and  its  quality  with  that  of  any  tooth 


paste  at  any  price.  Get  a  tube  from  your 
druggist's  and  begin  using  it.  You  will 
be  delighted  with  its  results. 

New  luster  and  brilliance 

Note  how  swiftly  and  thoroughly  it 
cleans — but  how  gently.  Only  the  safest 
of  ingredients  are  used. 

See  how  the  modern  polishing  agents 


iERINE 

TOOTH  PASTE 


it  contains  add  fresh  luster  and  brilliance 
to  teeth  that  used  to  be  dull. 

Note  how  quickly  these  agents  re- 
move ugly  tartar,  unsightly  discolora- 
tions,  disgusting  tobacco  stains. 

Firm,  healthy  gums 

After  you  have  used  this  paste  a  week, 
examine  your  gums.  They'll  appear 
healthier.  And  feel  healthier. 

And  look  for  that  wonderful  feeling 
of  exhilaration  and  mouth  cleanliness 
that  follows  its  use — the  delightfully 
refreshing  effect  you  associate  with 
Listerine  itself. 

A  common  sense  price 

Don't  forget  that  these  benefits  cost  you 
half  of  what  you  would  ordinarily  pay. 
Listerine  Tooth  Paste  costs  25^  the  large 
tube — a  product  as  good  as  the  name  it 
bears. 

Be  sensible.  Be  thrifty.  Use  Listerine 
Tooth  Paste.  Lambert  Pharmacal  Com-

Who  are  the  NEW 
Garbos  of  the  Screen  ? 

Maybe  you   think   Garbo   will   never  have  a  rival — but  the  studios  aren  t  giving  up 
the  search  for  one.      Here  are  three  exotic  new  blondes  to   prove  it — Sari  Maritza, 
Tala  Birell  and  Karen  Morley.  And,  even  though  they  are  brunettes,  don't  forget  Lil 
Dagover  and  Pola  Negri  (who  is  entirely  different  in  the  talkies)! 


WILL  there  ever  be  anyone  else  like  Garbo? 
Personally,  you  may  not  think  so — but  Holly- 
wood probably  will  never  give  up  the  hope 
that  somehow,  sometime,  somewhere  a  Garbo 
rival  will  be  found.  Beginning  with  Marlene  Dietrich,  who 


came  from,  and  what  their  claims  to  fame  are — but,  first, 
consider  what  has  happened  to  the  "Garbo  rivals"  of  193 1. 
Perhaps  you  can  remember  how  Hollywood  greeted  the 
arrival  of  such  foreign  charmers  as  Marlene  Dietrich,  from 
Germany;  Evelyn  Laye,  from  England;  Jeanne  Helbling, 
from   Pans;   Suzy  Vernon,   also  a 
Parisienne;    and    Tallulah    Bank- 
head,  the  American  girl  who  had 
become  London's  favorite  actress. 
It      was      cheerfully      ballyhooed 
(mostly  by  their  respective  studios) 
that   any,   or   all,   of  these   ladies 
would    put    serious    dents    in    the 
Garbo   armor.      Each   one   was   a 
dangerous   threat   to  her  tremen- 
dous popularity. 

They  came,  they  saw — but  out 
of  that  group  only  two  have  con- 
quered, and  not  by  being  "second 
Garbos."  Marlene  Dietrich  and 
Tallulah  Bankhead  have  survived 
the  hysteria  of  their  own  press- 
agents  and  have  won  stardom  and 
large  followmgs.  Whether  or  not 
they  have  developed  into  rivals  of 
Garbo,  any  more  than  they  are 
rivals  of  Joan  Crawford  or  Norma 


What  if  Garbo  should  do  the  unexpected  and  give  up 

the  movies — could  they  find  "another  Garbo"? They're 

already  trying! 


strenuously  objected,  every  startling  newcomer 
who  came  along  has  been  hailed  as  "another 
Garbo" — until  now  there  is  a  whole  crop  of  "new 
Garbos." 

Some  of  the  studios  behind  these  dazzling  new- 
comers favor  the  comparison;  some  fight  it.  But, 
either  way,  the  girls  themselves  can't  escape  be- 
ing likened  to  the  silent  Scandinavian — at  least, 
in  Hollywood.  The  most  outstanding  of  1932's 
new  and  unusual  sirens  are  Tala  Birell  and  Sari 
Maritza  (notice  that  even  their  names  are  un- 
usual!)— but  they  are  not  the  only  ones.  You 
are  about  to  learn  who  they  all  are,  where  they

Like  Garbo,  Lil  Dagover  is  exotic — but  is  too  individual  to  copy  her 


By     NANCY     Pryor 


rrcr.  is  a  moot  question.  Bur  at  least  their  fate  has 
been  more  flattering  than  rh.ir  of  some  of  the  other  lan- 
guorous ladies  who  were  i  •  -hts. 

Even  Evelyn  Vanished 

EVELYN  LA^  I..  the  stunning  English  woman  who  had 
been  hailed  by  Broadway  critics  as  the  greatest  beauty 
on  the  stage,  returned  to  rlu-  stage  and  her  native  country 
following  lier  one  starring  venture  with  United  Artists, 
"( )ne  ( Ilorious  Night."  Jeanne  I  lelbling  and  Suzy  \  ernon, 
imported  to  adorn  the  rosters  "I  UK'  >  and  First  National, 
ctively,  never  really  had  rlie  opportunit)  r<>  demon- 
strate their  charms  to  rlu-  American  public.  Jeanne  Helb- 
) i n li  had  been  brought  to  this  country  to  make  American 
pictures  and  remained  to  complete  only  two  fori  ign  versions 
in  Iht  native  tongue  before  her  contract  ran  out.  Suzy 
Vernon  was  also  restricted  to  pictures  in  her  native  lan- 
ge,  thus  losing  out  completely  on  the  opportunity  of 
presenting  herself  as  a  ( larbo  "rival." 

Wouldn't  you  think  that  the  fate  of  these  alluring  ladies, 
and  the  hullabaloo  that  arose  when  Dietrich  and  Bankhead 
were  called  "second  Garbos"  would  make  Hollywood 
wary?  Maybe  you'd  think  so — but,  lo,  a  year  later  the 
movie  capital  finds  itself  with  another  crop  of  "new  Gar- 
( )nly  now  the  producers  are  using  radically  different 
methods  in  publicizing  their  new  "finds" — they  are  insist- 
ing, begging  and  imploring  that  their  transplanted  exotics 
suffer  no  comparison  with  Ciarbo. 

With  tears  in  their  eyes,  the  Paramount  publicity  boys 
that  San  Maritza  be  spared  the  rumors  that  she  is 
another  Garbo  (and,  being  Paramount,  they  naturally  add 
"or  Dietrich").  "She  has  charm  and  allure  all  her  own." 
insists  Paramount.  As  the  word  "allure"  belongs  strictly 
to  I  larbo  in  the  minds  of  the  newspaper  men,  they  took 
hirches  in  their  belts  and  strolled  out  to  have  a  look  at  this 
girl  who  was  sharing  a  word  with  Greta. 

Sari  More  Like  Nancy  Carroll 

IN  place  of  a  sophisticated,  world-weary  woman,  they 
found  a  girl,  no  more  than  twenty-two  years  of  age,  who 
gave  indications  of  being  another  Nancy  Carroll,  rather 
than  another  Garbo.  She  was  as  charming,  friendly  and 
un-Continental  as  our  own  Sue  Carol  or  Anita  Page.  True, 
she  smoked  cigarettes  with  a  long  black  holder  and  had 
been  rumored  engaged  to  Charlie  Chaplin,  but  in  spite  of 


these  unusual  de-

ELI  EVE  it  or  not — but  Clara  Bow  (Mrs.  Rex

evening!  In  all  the  years  we  have  been  report- 
ing Hollywood  news  this  is  the  first  time  the 
little  red-head  has  ever  broken  into  the  social  columns 
with  anything  in  the  line  of  formal  entertainment.  Clara 
used  to  gather  a  "gang"  together  at  her  beach  house  for 
a  couple  of  hot  dogs  and  an  evening  of  poker,  but  she  had 
always  expressed  the  utmost  contempt  for  anything  more 
formal  than  a  checked  red-and-white  tablecloth  on  a  party 
table! 

But  Clara  and  Rex  had  fourteen  friends  to  their  home 
in  Beverly  Hills  just  the  other  evening.  The  table  was 
glittering  and  sparkling  with  silver  and  crystal,  and  yellow 
orchids  formed  an  exquisitely  elaborate  centerpiece. 

Clara,  the  gal  herself, 
was  stunningly  arrayed 
in  a  beautiful  formal 
gown  of  cream-colored 
satin  with  which  she 
wore  a  diamond  necklace 
and  two  sparkling  brace- 
lets. 

She's  now  within  a 
few  pounds  of  her  nor-

comeback  is  near.

Them  Over

ESTELLE  Taylor  and  Lupe  Velez  used  to  be  the  cl 
of  friends  —but  recently  things  have  been  rather  coo 
the  two  flaming  brunettes. 
Reason—  b<  lieved  to  he-- Randolph  Scott,  Lupe's  new  boy- 
frit  nd. 

When  Estelle  was  ill  in  the  hospital,  the  handsome  Scott 
1>..\  dropped  over  to  paj  his  respects,  which,  we  hear,  didn't 
nuke  such  a  hit  with  Lupe.  Well,  it'  these  little  tiffs  didn't 
happen,  Hollywood  would  be  begging  for  excitement! 


THE  folks  couldn't  believe  their  eyes  when  Mr.  and  Mrs.

BILL  Boyd  and  RKO-Pathe 
have  come  to  a  pari  ing  of  the 
ways  after  one  of  the  longest  con- 
tract engagements  on  record.  For 
eight  years  Bill  turned  oui  consistent 
money-makers  for  tins  concern  i  by 
the  way,  did  you  know  that  Boyd    i 


pictures  grossed  within  fifteen  per  cent  of  Constance  Bennett's?), 
but  toward  the  last  he  grew  discouraged  with  the  stories  and 
directors  selected  for  his  productions. 

Had  Bill  remained  with  RKO,  he  would  have  received  $5000 
weekly.  That's  a  lot  of  money  to  turn  down,  but  Boyd,  who  is  a 
great  star  on  Main  Street,  feels  he  deserves  a  better  picture  break 
than  the  home  company  was  giving  him.  He  will  free-lance  for  the 
time  being. 


ROMANCES   are  picking  up  a  little  bit  this  month.    Maybe  it's 
the  Spring  influence.    Anyway — 
When  Eddie  Sutherland  returns  from  his  directorial  duties  with 
Douglas  Fairbanks  in  the  South  Seas,  no  one  would  be  surprised 
if  Eddie  stepped  up  to  the  altar  with  Audrey  Henderson,  young 
actress.

interest  in  Alice  Glazer  (the  former  Mrs.  Barney  Glazer)  may  be

MARY  Pickford  has  a  quaint  habit  connected  with  giving 
autographed  pictures  of  herself  to  her  close  and  intimate 
friends.  When  Mary  gives  a  picture  to  someone  she  is  genuinely 
fond  of,  she  has  the  proof  destroyed  so  that  the  same  picture  will 
never  be  duplicated  to  another  friend — or  reach  publication.  It's 
a  lovely,  sincere  gesture — but  Mary's  friends  usually  pick  her  best 
pictures,  which  leaves  only  "second  bests"  for  the  newspapers  and 
magazines. 


TALLULAH  Bankhead  has  declared  war  on  interviewers!  When 
Tallulah  first  arrived  in  Hollywood,  she  saw  thirty-one  reporters 
in  one  week.  She  told  her  studio:  "I'll  see  everyone  who  wants  to 
meet  me;  I'll  be  a  good  girl  and  take  lots  of  fashion  pictures  and  new 
photographs  for  you;  in  short,  I'll  do  anything  you  say  until  I 
actually  start  work  on  my  picture.  After  that  if  you  show  up  with 
any  newspaper  people  in  tow  on  my  set,  I'll  kick  you  all  out!" 

And  maybe  you  think  Paramount  doesn't  believe  her!  Tallulah 
became  so  excited  when  she  saw  Julie  Lang  of  the  publicity  depart- 
ment coming  toward  her  with  a  newspaper  writer  that  she  promptly 
turned  and  fled — but  not  before  carrying  out  her  threat!  She  calmly 
and  grandly  kicked  Julie  as  she  sped  by. 


JUST  what  happened  between  Norma  Talmadge  and  her  former 
devoted  escort,  Gilbert  Roland,  is  not  known.  But  evidently 
they  called  off"  their  friendship  on  the  best  of  terms,  for,  just  before 
Norma  left  Hollywood  for  New  York  and  Palm  Beach  she  was  seen 
with  Roland  on  several  occasions.

Jimmy  D  u  n  n's 
Face  Reveals 
All   His  Secrets 

Do  you  know  why  Jimmy  shot  ahead  so 
fast — and  when  you  are  most  likely  to 
Find  him  in  a  serious  mood — and  how 
he  will  act  when  the  right  girl  comes 
along?  Toni  Gallant  tells  you,  by  the 
science  of  Faciology 

By    toni    Gallant 


JAMES  DUNN  was  just  the  sort  of  boy  who  inspired 
that  jingle  about  "sticks  and  snails  and  puppv  dogs' 
tails — that's  what  little  boys  are  made  of!"  More 
than  likely,  he  had  it  screamed  after  him  five  times 
a  week  by  several  severely  agitated  little  schoolgirls.  That 
is,  if  the  girls  of  his  school  days  used  doggerels.  And 
Jimmy,  the  little  gentleman,  replied:  "Go  tie  vourself  to 
a  can!"  or  "Muzzle  yourself!"  or  whatever  bywords  were 
in  favor  at  that  time,  just  to  convey  the  idea  he  didn't 
care.    Because  he  didn't — and  still  doesn't! 

And,  although  he  may  have  grown  up  in  size,  he  hasn't 
changed  greatly.  Nature  has  done  much  for  him  without 
his  being  aware  of  it.  Because  just  the  things  that  go  to 
make  the  boy  unbearable  usually  tend  to  make  him  a 
very  charming  young  man — the  boyish  sort  that  has  that 
way  of  getting  under  your  skin.  Nature  has  done  all  of 
that  for  James  Dunn,  and  made  him  as  big  a  hit,  in  his 
way  as  Clark  Gable,  lr  has  clothed  him  with  all  the 
glamour  and  charm  of  Peck's  bad  boy. 

Hi  has  a  very  exciting  and  entertaining  character  on 
the  surface.  Life  to  him  is  a  great  adventure  and  he 
enthusiastically  wants  to  see  all  it  has  to  offer.  He  picks 
up  things  with  surprising  quickness.  1  hat  is  why  he  was 
able  to  give  so  superb  a  performance  in  "  Bad  Girl"  with- 
out much  preliminary  training  in  histrionics.  He  learns 
by  watching.    You  have  to  tell  Jimmy  only  once. 

But  don't  think  from  this  that  he  never  has  a  serious 
moment.  I  Inn-  is  character  in  him  (hat  is  becoming 
stronger  all  tin-  tunc,  lie  has  many  serious  moments — 
but  mostly  when  he  is  alone.  Then,  he  is  capable  of  di  i  p 
meditation.  I  hat  is  why  his  judgment  is  invariably  good. 
He  hkes  to  think  things  out  for  himself. 

He  Doesn't  Believe  in  Promises 

JWIkS    DUNN   doesn't   expect   too  much   from    people.

Hollywood     Speaks 

its  Mind   about 

Tallulah  Bankhead 

Two  months  ago,  MOVIE  CLASSIC  presented  a  revealing  interview  with  the 
"sizzling  comet  among  the  stars" — Tallulah  Bankhead.  It  told  you,  among  other 
things,  that  she  says  what  she  thinks.  And  this  story  tells  you  what  happened 
when  other  stars,  from  Lupe  Velez  to  Clark  Gable,  spoke  their  minds  about 
Tallulah — confidentially,  you  understand 


JACKIE  COOPER:  "You  see,  it's  like  this  about  Miss 
Bankhead  'n'  me.  It  seems  Tallu — I  mean  Miss 
Bankhead — came  out  here  to  the  Coast  on  the  same 
train  with  Joan  Crawford  and  Douglas  Fairbanks, 
Jr.,  who  are  good  friends  of  mine.  An'  it  seems  Miss  Bank- 
head  tells  Joan  that  she  has  sort  of  a  crush — I  mean  that  I 
am  her  favorite  actor  or  somethin'  on  the  screen.  An' 
Joan  gives  a  dinner  party  so  Tallu — I  mean  Miss  Bank- 
head — can  meet  me.  She  was  prettv  nervous,  I  guess. 
She  says,  an'  you  know  she  talks  real  deep,  she  says:  'Can 
it  really  be  you,  at  last?' 

"She  sits  next  to  me  at  the  table,  too.  She  seemed  real 
tickled  about  it.  She's  sure 
pretty  all  right — 'n'  regular — 
picked  up  her  chicken  in  her 
fingers  when  I  did.  I  stayed 
at  the  party  until  eleven 
o'clock.  Tallu — I  mean.  Miss 
Bankhead — begged  me  to.  I 
guess  that's  how  that  story 
about  her  and  me  got  started. 
She  sent  me   a  swell   present, 


too — a  boat — a  swell  boat.    I  think  she's  swell,  too." 

Dorothy  Spensley,  who  wrote  the  interview  with  Tallulah 
in  the  March  Movie  Classic:  "She  was  in  bed  when  I  met 
her.  It  was  about  two  o'clock  in  the  afternoon — but  she 
was  in  bed,  holding  an  impromptu  reception  with  her  maid, 
her  secretary,  a  modiste  and  a  manicurist,  all  on  the  bed 
with  her.  And  you  think  it  wasn't  a  reception?  Only  a 
Continental  drawing-room  ever  held  such  laughter  and 
bon  mots,  such  a  poised  hostess,  and  such  champagne! 
When  Tallulah  speaks  in  that  low  throbbing  voice  of  hers 
and  says  the  Things  She  Says  in  the  Way  She  Says  Them, 
she  could  hold  a  reception  in  her  bathtub  and  it  would  be 
the  real  thing!  She's  quite  the  swell- 
est  dish  the  poor  old  press  has  met  in 
many  a  moon." 

What  Carole  Has  Noted 

CA ROLE  LOMBARD:  "I  know 
Miss  Bankhead  only  on  the 
screen,  but  I  think  her  truly  fascinat- 
ing. One  little  thing  I've  particularly 
noticed  is  that  her  clothes  are  so  un- 
Hollywoodish,  if  you  know  what  I 
mean." 

A  Certain  Well-Known  Columnist: 
"Sure,  Bankhead  is  a  hot  potato  and 
a  splash  of  color.  But  when  she  runs 
out  of  her  bag  of  tricks — then  what? 
The  newspaper  people  are  crazy 
about  her  because  she  says  what  she 
wants  to  when  she  wants  to.  In  a 
way,  she's  in  a  spot.  Wonder  if  any- 
body can  live  up  to  Tallulah's  reputa- 
tion for  brilliance  and  wit  in  this 
*  man's  town  ?" 

Fredric  March-  "It's  one  thing  to 
know  a  star  like  Tallulah  by  her 
publicity  reputation — and  quite

Mary  Sees  Doug  Off 

On  Long  Voyage  With 

Pretty  Leading  Lady 

Maria  Alba,  Spanish  Beauty  and  Recent   Bride,  To 

Be    "Native      Heroine     In     Fairbanks'     South    Sea 

Picture—  Tearful  Farewells  On  All  Sides 


by   Dorothy  donnell 


Though  hardly 

in      the     mood, 

Mary  and  Doug 

h  ad    to   face 

camera  s — 

and    smile 


Onlv  four  days  before  his  troupe  was 
to  sail  for  Tahiti,  Fairbanks  chose 
pretty  Maria  Alba  as  his  leading  lady 


WHEN    Douglas   Fairbanks 
decided     to     go     to     the 
South  Seas  to  make  his  next  pic- 
ture, and  Mary  decided  to  stay  in 
Hollywood    and   make   her   next 
picture,    the    old    gossip    started. 
Buz  z-b  uzz-buzz  —  separation — 
divorce — they    say — buzz-buzz.       It 
kept  up  right  to  the  moment  of  sail- 
ing, particularly  when  the  huge  crowd 
at  the  pier  saw  that  this  time  Doug 
was  taking  along  a  leading  lady — the 
very   young,   very   pretty   and    very 
excited  Maria  Alba.    Every  eye  was 
on  her. 

Mary  used  to  go  everywhere  Doug 
went,  even  on  location  trips  whenever 
possible,  until  two  or  three  years  ago. 
Then  she  startled  the  public  by  letting 
Doug  take  his  jaunts  abroad  alone. 
The  reason  was  very  simple — Mary 
not  only  doesn't  like  traveling  (and 
never  has),  but  it  actually  makes  her 
ill.  Being  a  sensible  and  devoted  wife, 
she  felt  that  she  should  not  interfere 
with  Doug's  wanderlust.  Hollywood, 
however,  preferred  to  believe  that 
Mary  stayed,  or  Doug  went,  for  a 
more  interesting  reason,  and  the  di- 
vorce rumors  resulted.  Doug  and 
Mary  knew,  as  did  Maria  Alba,  that 
there  would  probably  be  more  such 
rumors  from  this  trip  to  the  other 
side  of  the  world — but  all  three  could 
afford  to  ignore  them.  Sooner  or 
later,  the  true  story  would  be  pub- 
lished.    Here  it  is. 

As   the   S.  S.  Makura,  bound  for 


Maria  almost 
didn't  go 
when  it  came 
time  to  part 
from  her  new 
husband, 
David  Todd 


Papeite,  capital 
of  Tahiti, 
sailed  out  of 
San  Francisco 
harbor,  Maria 
Alba  drew  her 
first  breath  in 
three  frantic, 
crowded  days. 
Four  days  be- 
fore, she  had 
been  just  the 
happy  bride  of 

David  Todd,  casting  director  at  Fox 
Studios,  planning  to  give  up  the 
screen  career  that  had  brought  her 
from  Barcelona  four  years  ago  to  play 
in  Spanish  versions  of  American  pic- 
tures. Then  had  come  the  chance  to 
take  tests  for  the  role  of  the  native 
heroine  in  the  Fairbanks  picture. 
And  the  tests  had  been  more  success- 
ful than  she  had  dared  to  hope.  She 
supplanted  Lupita  Tovar,  who  had 
been  tentatively  chosen. 


Onlookers  report  that  the 
final  parting  between  the 
Todds  made  it  look  for  a 
moment  as  though  Doug 
would  have  to  sail  away 
without  a  leading  lady. 
Maria  sobbed  and  clung  to 
her  husband's  coat,  while 
Mary  and  Doug  escaped 
behind  closed  stateroom 
doors  to  say  farewell  with- 
out prying  eyes  or  pointing 
cameras.  When  Mary  reap- 
peared, she  wore  a  veil  over 
her  eyes. 

Mary  and  Maria  took  an 
affectionate    leave    of    one 
another.        No    one    heard 
everything  they  said.     Per- 
haps Mary  was  begging  to 
see    that    Doug   Wore 
his     rubbers     if    they 
struck  the  rainy  sea- 
son  in   Tahiti.      It  is 
certain  that  Mary 
called   after  Maria  to 
be  sure  to  write.  "Yes, 
yes,     I'll     write     you 
often,"     called     back 
Maria. 

And  after  all  the 
tears  and  partings, 
Maria  may  not  appear 
in  the  Fairbanks  com- 
edy in  the  end.  Doug's 
first  plan  was  to  have 
a  native  heroine  for 
his  picture.  Then,  de- 
ciding that  this  might 
be  impossible,  he  had 
sought  out  a  Holly- 
wood heroine  who  could  look  like  a 
South  Seas  beauty,  if  his  search  for  a 
native  heroine  were  in  vain.  Maria, 
they  say,  does  not  know  this.  Perhaps 
she  would  not  have  gone  if  she  had 
not  been  sure  of  the  iole.

Lupe  Velez'  Romance 

With  "Second  Cooper 

Didn't  Bloom 


// 


Randolph  Scott,  Newcomer  Who  Resembles  Gary 
Cooper,  Was  Scheduled  To  Play  Opposite  Gary's 
Old  Flame  Until  Romance  Rumors  Linked  Their  Names 


TUPE  VELEZ  and  Randolph  Scott, 
I  .,  the  tall  young  Virginian  who  is 
being  mistaken  for  Gary  Cooper, 
were  supposed  to  be  teamed  in  the 
Paramount  picture,  "The  Brok- 
en Wing."  But  before  the  pic- 
ture could  be  started,  romance 
rumors  linked  their  names — 
and  Scott  was  transferred  to 
the  cast  of  "Sky  Bride,"  in- 
stead. And  good  old  Holly- 
wood couldn't  help  getting  a 
laugh  out  of  all  this,  because  it 
remembered  the  reports  of  the 
same  studio's  disapproval  of 
the  original  Gary  and  the  hot- 
headed little  Mexican  actress. 

When    Randolph    Scott    first 
arrived  in  Hollywood  last  Fall, 
his     startling     resemblance     to 
Gary   Cooper   was   a   source  of 
interest  to  everybody.    Talk  had 
it  that  Paramount  was  grooming 
this  tall,  lanky  boy  to  take  the 
place    of   Gary,    if   the    latter's 
state   of  health   kept  him   from 
creen    activity    very 
long.     But  when  it  be- 
gan    to     be     rumored 
about     that     the     chap 
who    looked    so    much 
like     Gary    was     being

Certainly,  for  a  little  while  at  least, 
Lupe  made  no  attempt  to  squelch  the 
Illinois  though  she  did  later.  They 
tell  an  amusing  story  of  a  rime  when 
Lupe,  in  her  dressing-room,  pro- 
claiming how  "crazee"  she  was 
about  young  Scott,  instructed  her 
maul  to  call  him  on  the  'phone. 
''Hut  there  are  several  Mr.  Scotts," 


said  the  girl.  "Which 
one? "  Lupe  is  pic-

Lupe  is  now    in  the  new  Ziegfeld

if  rumors    will    link    their    names 

next? 


Lupe    and    Scott    were  seen 
together  so   much,    and    Lupe 
was  so  freely  giving  the  impres- 
sion  that   she   liked    Mr.    Scott 
that  Paramount  may  have  felt  it 
was  time  to  step  in  and  Stave  oft  a 
tepe.it  on  the  Cooper-Velez  romance. 
Anyway,    Randolph    Scott    does    not 
appear  with    Lupe  in   "  [Tie    Broken 
Wing."    and    now    Hollywood    hears 
that  their  interesting  friendship  is  as 
cold  as  an  "overdrawn  '  notice  from 
the  hank.    Hollywood  is  firmly  con- 
vinced that  a  romance  was  headed  off 
by    something     either    the    studio,    a 
secret    revival    ol    the    Velez-Coopei 
romance,  or  a  brand-new  romance  on

Rudy  Vallee's  Wife 

Goes  West  For  Health, 

Not  Divorce 


(Pi 


Here  are  Rudy  Vallee  and  Fay  Webb,  as  they  looked  to 
the  minister  on  July  6,  1931 — the  day  he  disappointed 
his  admirers  and  got  married.    They  met  while  he  was 
filming  "The  Vagabond  Lover" 


Three   Times   Since    Marriage   To    Famous 

Crooner/  Fay  Webb  Vallee  Has  Returned 

To    California   Home — Trips   Are   Merely 

Health  Vacations 

By  Helen  Scott 


EVER  since  Rudy  Vallee  married 
Fay  Webb,  daughter  of  a  Santa 
Monica  (Cal.)  city  official,  the  gos- 
sips have  been  busy  hinting  that 
they  are  on  the  verge  of  separation. 
Though  their  close  friends  have 
scoffed  at  such  insinuations,  out- 
siders have  called  attention  to  the 
fact  that,  in  the  short  span  of  their 
married  life,  Fay  has  made  three 
trips  back  to  the  home  of  her  family 
after  short  "visits"  with  her  husband 
in  New  York.  The  gossips'  guess 
was  that  the  popular  crooner  and  his 
bride  were  quarreling  and  making  up. 

But  lately  there  have  been  whispers 
of  a  more  serious,  poignant  explana- 
tion back  of  these  marital  vacations 
of  the  Vallees — a  memorable  love 
story  that  comes  straight  from  Santa 
Monica  friends  of  the  couple: 

Fay  Vallee's  health  is  a  constant 
worry  to  herself,  her  husband  and  her 
family.  A  victim  of  "low  resistance," 
she  must  constantly  be  on  her  guard 
against  contracting  any  dangerous 
illness — such  an  illness,  say,  as  at- 
tacked Lila  Lee  and  Renee  Adoree. 
She  must  have  a  great  deal  of  sun- 
shine, rest  and  outdoor  life.  When 
she  first  met  and  fell  in  love  with  the 
radio  singer,  during  the  time  he  was 
making  "The  Vagabond  Lover"  in 
Hollywood,  Fay  told  him  of  her  deli- 
cate health,  but  Rudy  refused  to  let 
that  make  any  difference.   He  wanted 


to  marry 
Fay  im- 
mediately, 
before  he  re- 
turned  to 
New  York, 
but  she 
wanted  to 
he  sure  that 
he  knew  his 
own  mind. 
She   said, 

"Let's   wait        HHHH 
a  few  weeks, 
anyway." 

Not  long  after,  she  fol- 
lowed him  to  New  York — 
and  they  were  married,  sur- 
prising millions  of  Vallee 
admirers.  Being  the  bride 
of  such  a  popular  enter- 
tainer, the  new  Mrs.  Vallee 
had  to  attend  a  constant 
round  of  parties  in  her 
honor.  Rudy's  entire  life 
is  night-life — his  radio, 
night-club  and  theatre  en- 
gagements. Fay,  anxious 
and  happy  to  be  at  the 
side  of  her  husband,  at- 
tempted to  keep  up  the 
pace  as  long  as  she  could 
stand  it,  physically — and 
then  it  was  necessary  for 
her  to  return  to  the  quiet 
of  her  California  home. 


Worried  about 
the  health  of  his 
bride  (right), 
Rudy  insisted 
that  she  go  back 
to  California  for 
a  "good,  long 
rest"  and  joined 
her  there — thus 
ending  rumors 
that  they  were 
on  the  verge  of 
divorce 


Three  times  Fay  has  had 
to  return  to  the  home  of  her 
parents  in  order  to  regain 
the  strength  that  has  been 
expended  in  living  up  to  the 
busy  and  exciting  role  of

Millionaire  Cables 
Proposal  — Virginia 
Cherrill  Says  "Yes 

Chaplin's  Leading  Lady  In     City  Lights"  Sails 

For  Wedding  In  South  Seas — Bridegroom  One 

Of  Americas  Wealthiest  Men 

By  jane  Matthews 


VIRGINIA  CHERRILL,  who 
crashed  into  movie  prominence 
opposite  Charlie  Chaplin  in  "City 
Lights,"  is  the  latest  screen  beauty 
to  win  a  millionaire-  and,  appropri- 
ately enough,  the  setting  for  the 
wedding  is  the  Society  Islands. 
Along  with  the  Douglas  Fair- 
banks troupe  headed  for 
the  South  Seas  to  film 
"Tropic  Nights,"  she  sailed 
to  meet  the  Vincent  Astor 
yacht  at  Tahiti  and  to  be- 
come the  bride  of 
William  Rhine- 
lander  Stewart, 
New  York  socialite. 

Besides  belong- 
ing to  the  Four 
Hundred,  Mr. 
Stewart  is  one  of 
the  wealthiest  men 
in  America.  Mis 
mother,  upon  her 
death  a  few  years 
left  many  mil- 
lions to  be  divided 
between  her  two 
children — William 
and  his  sister,  Ani- 
ta, Duchess  d  e 
Braganza,  wife  of 
the  pretender  to 
the  throne  of  Por- 
tugal. 

Several  years  ago, 

1 1  \\  a  r  t  married 
I. aura  Middle  of 
the  prominent  Phil- 
ad  el  phi  a  family, 
and  their  wedding 
was  an  internation- 
al social  event.  Al- 
most from  the  he- 
ginning,  however,  their  union  was  an 
unhappy  one,  and  two  years  ago  they 
were  divorced,  on  the  grounds  of 
"incompatibility."    Her  marriage  to 


Stewart  is  also  Virginia 
Cherrill's  second  ven- 
ture into  matrimony. 
While  in  her  early  teens, 
she  wed  Irving  Adler, 
Chicago  attorney.  1  heir 
marriage  went  a-ghm- 
menng  when  \  lr- 
ginia  went  to  the 
Coast  to  visit  her 
Chicago  chum.  Sue  Carol,  and 
stayed  to  enter  the  movies. 
While  playing  opposite  Chap- 
lin, her  name  was  ro- 
mantically coupled  with 
his,  as  is  usual  with 
Chaplin  and  his  leading 
ladies.  Later,  there  was 
talk  of  an  "engagement" 
to  Buster  West,  come- 
dian. But  Virginia's 
biggest  romance  was  with 
Tommy  Lee,  son  of  a 
wealthy  West  Coast  fam- 
ily. Wedding  bells  were 
confidently  expected. hut 
about  six  months  ago 
they  had  a  misunder- 
standing and  \  irginia 
went  away  for  a  visit  to 
New  York.  It  was  there 
that  she  met  William 
Rhinelander     Stewart 

and  their  close 
friends  say  it 
was  .1  cast  "l

blonde   girl    finally    consented    lo    join 

the   party,   tin    papers   were    full   of 
the    news    that    Stewari    and    Miss 


William  Rhine* 
lander  Me  wart 
proposed  wed* 
ding  on  Astor 
yacht 


Friends  say  it  was  a  case  of  "love  at  first  sight"  with  both 

Virginia  Cherrill  and  her  millionaire  suitor.    And  if  she 

hadn't   quarreled   with   her   "fiance,"  she   might   ne>  er 

have  met  Stewart! 


Cherrill  would  be  married  aboard  the 
Astor  yacht,  the  ceremony  to  be 
performed  by  \  incent  Astor.  him- 
self, in  his  capacity  of.  captain. 

The  peculiar  part  about  this  story 
is  that  Virginia  hardly  had  time  to 
reach  Tahiti  before  reports  appeared 
in  the  papers  that  the  Astor  yacht 
was  back  in  American  waters.  The 
reports,  however,  did  not  state  that 
Mr.  Stewart  was  still  aboard.  The 
inference  was  that  he  was  still  cruis- 
ing somewhere  in  the  South  Seas. 
waiting  for  his  bride. 

If  the  Astor  yacht  is  back  in  Amer- 
ican waters,  should  we  believe  an 
earlier  report  that  Mrs.  Astor  ob- 
jected  to  having  the  wedding  on 
board  the  yacht,  because  of  the  pub- 
licity that  would  result? 

It  is  not  exactlj  uncommon  for 
pretn  movie  girls  to  many  wealthy 
men.  Constance  1  almadge  married 
the  enormously  rich  Pow-nsend  Net- 
cher  of  Chicago;  the  same  city 
furnished  an  equally  wealths  and 
charming  young  husband,  Edward 
Hillman,  Jr.,  for  Marian  Nixon; 
Constance  Bennett  was  briefly  the 
wife  of  the  socially  prominent  young 
millionaire.      Phil      Plant.  Phyllis

Why  Did  Colleen  Moore 
And  Al  Scott  Attempt 
1*         Secret  Wedding? 

Former  Screen   Favorite  Tries  To   Dodge  Publicity  In 

Marrying  Young  New  York  Broker — Both   Had  Been 

Divorced,  and  Romance  Had  Been  Denied 


By   Evelyn   Derr 


Above,  Colleen  Moore  registers  that 
honeymoon  smile  at  Miami  Beach, 
at  the  side  of  her  new  husband, 
Albert  Scott.  Right,  Colleen  and  her 
former  husband,  director  John  Mc- 
Cormick,  on  a  yachting  trip  when 
their  marriage  was  one  of  Holly- 
wood's "happiest."  Below,  Colleen 
as  you  may  soon  see  her  on  the  screen 


w 


HEN 
Colleen 
Moore  and  Al 
Scott  motored 
from  Palm  Beach, 
Florida,  to  Fort 
Pierce,  Florida, 
early  one  recent 
morning  and  were 
married,  they  did 
everything  in 
their  power  to 
keep  the  news 
from  reporters. 
The  "secret" 
lasted  just  two 
hours  before  the 
Palm  Beach  news- 
hawks got  wind  of 
what    had    taken 

place  and  proclaimed  their  findings 
to  newspaper  syndicates.  But  why 
did  Colleen  attempt  a  secret  mar- 
riage? 

All  her  friends  expected  Colleen  and 
the  young  New  York  broker  to  be 
married  as  soon  as  her  divorce  from 
director  John  McCormick  became 
final  (on  May  13,  193 1).  Yet  even 
when  the  rumors  of  their  engage- 
ment were  flying  the  thickest,  Colleen 
denied    the    romance    and    said    she 


doubted  if  she 
would  ever  marry 
again!  Colleen  is 
too  level-headed 
to  have  wanted  a 
secret  marriage 
merely  because  it 
has  become  a  pop- 
ular fad  among  pic- 
ture people.  There 
must  have  been 
other  reasons, 
thmksHollywood. 
Her  first  mar- 
riage having  end- 
ed in  divorce  after 
an  auspicious  beginning,  might  not 
the  little  Irish  girl  have  wanted  to 
escape  publicity  as  much  as  possible 
when  marrying  a  second  time?  Also 
— not  only  was  Colleen,  herself,  a 
divorcee,  but  her  thirty-year-old 
bridegroom,  whose  full  name  is 
Albert  Parker  Scott,  has  been  di- 
vorced. He  married  Elizabeth  Esh- 
baugh,  daughter  of  a  wealthy  New 
York  stock  broker,  in  1930  and  the 
couple   parted   in    September  of  the 


same  year  by  the  divorce  route. 
Several  months  later  he  went  to 
Los  Angeles  to  visit  and  it  was  there 
that  he  met  Colleen  Moore.  Friends 
say  that  they  were  immediately 
attracted  to  each  other.  They  had 
a  great  deal  in  common,  also — 
both  bearing  the  scars  of  recent 
marital  break-ups.  From  the 
beginning,  Scott  was  Colleen's 
devoted  escort  and  financial 
adviser.  They  say  that  it  is 
through  his  influence  that  Col- 
leen has  not  invested  her  own 
money  in  making  a  "comeback" 
picture  and  that  he  has  encouraged 
ner  to  stick  to  stage  engagements 
until  she  has  acquired  the  necessary 
experience  for  talking  picture  tech- 
nique. She  has  just  been  appearing 
in  "Church  Mouse"  on  the  Los 
Angeles  stage. 

Her  career  is  another  reason  why 
Colleen  may  have  wished  to  keep  her 
Florida  marriage  a  secret.  Except  in 
rare  cases,  Hollywood  still  clings  to 
the  belief  that  the  public  is  more 
interested  in  unmarried  actresses. 
(Look  at  Garbo!)  And  Colleen  is 
decidedly  not  retired  from  her  career. 
She  is  as  eager  to  make  a  hit  on  the 
talking  screen  as  she  was,  in  the  old 
days,  to  reach  the  pinnacle  of  silent- 
screen  fame.  The  general  knowledge 
of  her  marriage  to  John  McCormick 
did  not  deter  her  then.  And  with 
Colleen's  fighting  spirit,  the  knowl- 
edge of  her  marriage  to  Al  Scott  will 
probably  in  no  way  detract  from  her 
"comeback"  as  a  talkie  star. 

Since  their  divorce,  Colleen's  ex- 
husband,  John  McCormick,  has  mar- 
ried again — and  the  marriage  has 
gone  on  the  rocks.  Previous  to  this 
second  marriage,  McCormick  was  ru- 
mored to  have  asked  Colleen  to  re- 
marry him.  But  by  that  time  she  had 
met  Albert  Scott.

Pickford's  Memories 
Of  First  Wife  Hasten 
End  Of  Third  Marriage 

Actor's  Friends  Say  He  Cannot  Forget  Tragic  Olive  Thomas 
— GiveThis  As  Real  Reason  For  Pickford-Mulhern  Divorce 


BY    DOROTHy     CALHOUN 


TACK    PICKFORD,    at    thirty-six, 

|  has  lost  his  third  actress-wife. 
'  With  tears  in  her  eyes,  Mary  Mul- 
hern  has  just  divorced  the  once- 
famous  younger  member  of  the 
House  of  Pickford,  whom  she  mar- 
ried on  August  12,  1930.  She  asked 
her  freedom  on  the  familiar  grounds 
of  "mental  cruelty,"  alleging  con- 
stant fault-finding.  But  those  who 
know  the  inside  story  claim  that 
Mary  did  not  mention  the  real 
tragedy  of  their  marriage — a  tragedy 
that  started  with  Jack's  first  marriage. 

Old-timers  in  Hollywood  still  re- 
member the  sensation  that  Jack 
created  when  he  brought  his  first 
wife,  Olive  Thomas,  to  the  Coast — 
and  to  fame  in  the  movies.  1  he  movie 
colony  had  heard  that  she  was  the 
toast  of  Broadway,  but  no  one  was 
prepared  for  the  exquisite  beauty  of 
the  "follies"  girl  he  had  married. 

Jack  was  then  nineteen,  and  one  of 
the  most  winning  personalities  on  the 
screen.  His  was  a  desperate  case  ot 
young  love  and  it  lasted  without  a  let- 
down for  five  years.  And  no  one  who 
was  at  the  farewell  party  for  Jack 
v. hen  he  went  away  to  war  will  forget 
the  desperate  sobbing  of  Olive 
I  liomas  that  broke  up  the  party. 
\\  hen,  a  few  years  later,  the  gay, 
young,  tempestuous  marriage  came  to 
a  tragic  end  in  a  Fans  hotel  room, 
Jack  Pickford  suffered  a  blow  from 
which  he  never  recovered. 

All  his  troubles,  say  his  friends, 
date  from  the  death  of  lovely  Olive 
I  liomas  from  poison,  taken  by  mis-

lie  rntd  to  pick  up  the  broken 
strands  of  his  life.  He  tried  to  go  on 
with  his  screen  career.  In  1922,  he 
even  married  again — this  time  win- 
ning another  great  Broadway  favorite, 


Marilyn  Miller.  I  his  marriage,  how- 
ever, was  doomed  from  the  start — by 
the  fact  that  he  was  on  one  Coast  and 
she  on  the  other,  if  for  no  other 
reason.  They  parted — friends.  He 
left  the  screen.  Only  occasionally  did 
the  public  hear  of  him.

Ruth  Chatterton  Helps  Husband 
Buy  Play— Forbes  Asks  Her 

To  Direct  It 

Couple  Outbid  Two  Movie  Companies  To  Get  English  Stage  Hit, 
Which  Will  Star  Ralph— Ruth  His  Partner,  Not  His  "Backer" 


Janet  burden 


A  FEW  months  ago, 
Hollywood  was  say- 
ing that  Ruth  Chatterton 
and  her  husband,  Ralph 
Forbes,  were  on  the  verge 
of  divorce.  Now  Holly- 
wood is  saying  that  Ruth 
has  gone  to  considerable 
expense  and  effort  to 
stimulate  interest  in  the 
"waning  career"  of  her 
husband  by  purchasing  a 
play,  which  she  will  direct 
and  which  will  star  Ralph ! 

"Forbes  is  slipping,"  the 
chatterers  will  tell  you, 
"and  Chatterton  is  trying 
to  bring  him  back!" 

It's  a  good  story — but  it 
just  doesn't  happen  to  be 
true,  any  more  than  were 
those  divorce  rumors  of 
last     December.  Ruth 

Chatterton  has  bought  a 
play,  called  "Counsel's 
Opinion,"  and  will  direct 
it.  The  play  will  star  Ralph 
Forbes,  supported  by  Rose 
Hobart.  It  is  not  true  that  Miss 
Chatterton  refuses  to  sell  the  movie 
rights  of  the  play  unless  Forbes  is  sold 
with  them.  According  to  the  two  who 
should  know  best  about  it,  here  is  the 
true  story  of  the  venture: 

Several  months  ago,  Ralph  Forbes 
became  interested  in  this  English 
stage  hit  He  thought  it  would  be 
equally  successful  in  America,  as  it 
offered  opportunities  for  both  stage 
and  film  production.  It  looked  like 
a  good  investment — and  Forbes,  by 
no  means  "broke,"  started  negotia- 
tions to  buy  the  story,  purely  as  a 
business  venture.  (Ralph  Forbes 
made  #75,000  last  year,  and  if  that  is 
"broke,"  then  most  of  us  are  in  the 
poorhouse.      And    as    for    his    being 


Hollywood   heard   that 
alone    had    bought    the 
that  she  and  Ralph  are 
ing   above.      But   Holly 
was  wrong — again 


Ruth

Lippman 


"through"  on  the  screen,  he 
is  supporting  Tallulah  Bank- 
head  in  "Thunder  Below.") 
But  just  as  Forbes  was 
about  to  close  the  deal  on 
"Counsel's  Opinion,"  two 
major  movie  companies 
started  bidding  for  it.  The 
price^finally  became  so  steep 
that  he  put  the  proposition 
before  Ruth  Chatterton  and 
suggested  that  they  buy  it  in 
partnership,  each  taking  a 
half-interest.  After  she  read 
the  play.  Miss  Chatterton 
was  equally  "sold"  on  it  and 
between  them  they  topped 
the  offers  made  by  the  film 
companies. 

The  production  of  the  play 
— which  may  be  renamed 
"Let  Us  Divorce" — is  purely 
a  business 
venture,  in 
which  they  are 
equally  inter- 
ested. As  the 
leading  role 
fits  Forbes  to 
perfection,  he 
would  be  an  ex- 
tremely foolish 
business  man 
not  to  play  it. 
And,  like  any 
other  producer, 
Ralph  is  merely 
anxious  for  the 
success  of 
what  has 
turned  out  to 
be  a  big  invest- 
ment and  he  is  perfectly  willing  to  sell 
the  story  to  a  film  producer. 

"I  asked  Ruth  to  direct  the  play," 
explains  Forbes,  "because  I  consider 
ler  the  finest  stage  director  in 
America  to-day.  It  is  too  bad  that 
her  association  with  this  venture 
resulted  in  such  absurd  gossip."

Here's  the  answer  to  that  question:  Is  he  just 
a  good  actor,  or  is  he  really  Spanish?  And 
to  that  other  question:  "Why  is  he  the  only 
screen  star  ever  invited  to  California  s  most 
exclusive  parties?"  He's  a  gay  caballero  you 
ought  to  know  better! 


By  J.  Eugene  chrisman 


ELISSA  LANDI  may  be  granddaughter  of  an 
Austrian  Empress,  Ivan  Lebedeff  may  be  a 
Russian  Count,  Mary  Pickford  and  Douglas 
'  Fairbanks  and  Charlie  Chaplin  may  pal 
around  with  the  English  nobility,  and  Constance 
Bennett  may  bear  one  of  the  proudest  titles  in  all 
France — but  did  you  know  that  there  is  only  one 
screen  star  who  is  ever  admitted  to  the  aristocracy 
of  old  California,  itself?  And  that  this  star  is  none 
other  than  Leo  Carrillo,  Hollywood's  gayest  caba- 
llero and  the  star  who  has  the  most  colorful  back- 
ground of  them  all,  perhaps? 

When  the  Del  Yalles,  the  Bandinis,  the  Vallejos  and  the 
Dominguez'  and  other  proud  scions  of  California's  First 
Families  gather  to  hold  fiesta,  only  Carrillo,  of  all  the 
elite  of  filmdom,  is  invited.  (And  maybe  this  doesn't 
burn  up  some  of  the  other  stars!)  But  I  ask  you  to  remem- 
ber that  his  name  is  pronounced  Car-ree-yo,  not  Car- 
rill-o,  and  that  he  is  the  great-great-grandson  of  one  of 
California's  first  provincial  governors  and  descendant  of 
Juan  Leon  Carrillo,  who  landed  with  the  conquistadores 
of  Cortez  to  sack  the  treasure  troves  of  the  Aztecs. 

"My  ancestors?"  Don  Leo  lifts  an  eloquent  eyebrow. 
"Yes,  but  do  not  blame  me.  I  am  proud  of  them,  si,  but 
after  all  it  is  what  one  does  with  one's  own  life  that 
counts." 

A  strange  and  fascinating  personality,  this  son  of  old 
Spanish  California.  In  spite  of  his  proud  ancestry,  he  is, 
above  all,  human  and  close  to  the  people.  He  is  equally 
at  home  with  governors  and  with  gangsters,  numbering 
several  of  each  among  his  intimate  friends.  The  Mexican 
peons  whom  he  often  invites  to  his  home  are  treated  with 
the  same  gracious,  old-world  courtesy  he  accords  the 
wealthy  and  the  famous. 

As  Young  As  They  Come 

MY  FIRST  glimpse  of  him  was  at  the  preview  of  bis 
picture,  "Homicide  Squad,"  held  in  Glendale.  Un- 
able to  find  a  seat,  he  had  joined  a  group  of  ragged 
urchins  who  squatted  in  the  aisles,  and  was  enjoying  him- 
self with  all  the  gusto  of  a  youngster  at  a  circus.    They 


Lonftworth 


didn't  know  who  he  was,  but  he  got  along  with  them  like 
a  pal.  There  is  something  infectious  about  his  exuber- 
ance.   Maybe  you  have  caught  it,  too. 

He  is  an  author  and  an  artist,  as  well  as  an  actor — so 
he  has  three  outlets  for  this  exuberance;  and  he's  about 
to  adopt  a  young  boy,  to  have  still  another  outlet.  His 
romantic  history  of  early  California  is  considered  a  classic. 
Besides  Fnglish  and  Spanish,  he  speaks  Italian,  Chinese 
and  Japanese  fluently,  and  he  attributes  the  success  of 
his  screen  characterizations  to  his  intimate  contact  with 
people  of  all  classes,  races  and  creeds.  Jack  London  was 
his  friend,  and  he  was  with  O.  Henry  just  before  the  great 
short-story  writer  died.  Like  them,  he  is  a  keen  student 
of  human  nature. 

The  name  of  Carrillo  is  one  that  is  stamped  indelibly 
upon  the  history  of  California.  Don  Leo  is  related  by 
either  blood  or  marriage  to  the  majority  of  those  proud 
families  whose  cattle  roamed  the  hills  in  uncounted  thou- 
sands and  who  measured  their  land  holdings  by  the  square 
mile  in  the  days  before  the  gringo  came,  llis  great-great- 
grandfather, Don  Carlos  Antonio  Carrillo,  was  one  of  the 
first  governors  of  this  vast  Mexican  province,  in  1837-38, 
and  was  married  to  Don  Leo's  great-great-grandmother 
m  old  Carmel  Mission  by  1' ra  Junipero  Serra,  founder  of 
the  missions  in  the  late  Eighteenth  Century.  Their  mar- 
riage was  made  possible  by  special  dispensation  ol  King 
(  'alios,  the    I  hird,  ot   Spain.

PICTURE 


GANGDOM   has  challenged  the  movies!    Lifting 
its  ugly  head,  the  world  of  racketeering  has  put 
the  ringer  on  the  picture  business.     The  pro- 
ducers are  to  be  told  what  films  they  can  or 
cannot  make,  or  else — 

These  statements  are  no  figments  of  a  press-agent's 
imagination.  The  situation  is  here!  It  exists  in  the  mys- 
terious campaign  to  ban  "Scarface,"  Howard  Hughes' 
masterly  expose  of  gangdom.  Other  producers  have  made 
gang  pictures  before — and  since — "Scarface"  was  made, 
and  no  one  bothered  them.  Why,  then,  this  insidious  but 
determined  effort  to  cut  or  ban  entirely  this  terrific  in- 
dictment of  gang  rule  in  America?  Who  is  afraid  of  its 
effect  upon  the  public? 

Let  us  tell  you  what  happened.  Here,  for  the  first  time, 
is  the  story  of  Howard  Hughes'  fight  to  get  "Scarface" 
on  the  screen.  It  is  a  dramatic  fight,  and  a  fine  one,  but  it 
is  not  won  yet.    You  still  have  your  part  to  do. 

Hughes  is  intellectually  honest  with  his  pictures.     He 
never  wabbles  or  turns  saccharine.     He  does  not  com- 
promise.      When    he    decided    to 
make  "Scarface,"  he  didn't  even 
bother  to  camouflage  the  fact  that

What  Scared  the  Gangsters 

THE  St.  Valentine's  Day  massacre  of  seven  Chicago 
gangsters  is  one  of  those  incidents.  The  killing  of 
"Big  Jim"  Colosimo  in  his  cafe  is  another.  The  murder  of 
Tony  Lombardi  in  his  flower  shop,  after  which  Capone 
rose  to  power  not  only  in  Chicago,  but  in  all  America,  is 
still  another  incident.  The  shooting  of  Jack  ("Legs") 
Diamond  while  he  was  in  a  hospital  is  woven  into  the 
story,  and  the  finale  is  taken  from  the  bombardment,  by 
several  hundred  New  York  police, 
of  the  stronghold  of  Francis  (Two 


Gun")  Crowley.

fighting  mad.  It  is,  perhaps,  the  most  daring  story 
inside  story  of  the  greatest  expose  of  gangdom 
effort  ever  made  to  keep  a  picture  from  the 
see    Scarface.      But  will  you  see  it,  or  won  t  you? 


Strong   stuff,   this — stuff  that   hits 
close  to  home,  stuff  that  didn't  have 
to  originate  in  any  fiction-writer's 
imagination. 

W  ord  of  "Scarface"  got  out  to 
gangland.      Shortly   before   the 
picture   was   finished,    Howard 
Hawks,  the  director,  received 
several    telephone   calls   from 
Chicago  gangsters  who  were

they  had  been  told 
to  see  the  picture,  as 
the  "B  i  g  Bo  y" 
wanted  to  know 
what  they  were  do-

Hawks'  reply  was 
brief.  "If  you  want 
to  see   'Scarface,' 


Every  incident  in  "Scarface"  is  based  on  incidents  that 
have  happened  in  real-life  gangdom.    This  is  the  faith-

ward,   a    number    of    Chicago 
gangsters     were     run     out     of 
Southern   California   by  the  po- 
lce.      Before   they   left,    however, 
both   Hawks 
and   Hughes 
had    been 
threatened. 

But  then, 
mysteriously, 
opposition 
to  the  release 
of  "Scarface"

Some  Things 

Ann  Harding 

Has  Never  Told 

Till  Now 


ANN    HARDING    lives    on    the 

/\        highest    hill   in  Hollywood. 

/ — \     From   the   beautiful   white 
JL      Jl.   house  that  she  and  her  hus- 
band built  out  of  their  own  minds, 
she  can   see  all   the    movie   colony 
spread  out  below  and  it  looks  like 
a   colony   of  insects.     She   is    not 
happy  in  this    magnificent   house 
with    all    the    things    sup- 
posed to  make  for  hap- 
piness.    She  is  "jit- 
tery"   with   Holly- 
wood.    She  is  dis- 
gusted     with 
"moom    pictures." 

High    above    Cahu- 
enga    Pass,    these    great 
windows,  out  of  which  she 
is  always  looking  and  which 
dwart  the  Hollywood  world 
into   something   acutely 
small,  have  given  her  a  new 
perspective  in  harmony  with 
an  old  desire.    For  Ann  Hard- 
ing has  a  secret:     She  wants 
to  write. 

She   wants    to   write    so    in- 
tensely that  the  desire  has  be- 
come   a   sort   of  hunger,   which 
looks  out  ot  her  delicate  pale  face 
and    makes   her   pale   blue   eyes 
dreamy  as  she  stands  before  the 
huge  windows  —  windows  that 
make     transparent     and     pretty 
aimless  the  doings 
of  the  insect  world 
below. 

"I     shall    prob- 
ably never  be  able 
to  do  it,"  she  con- 
fessed.   "That's 
why  I  don't  feel  I 
ought  to  talk  about  my  try 
ing  to  write.      But  ever 
since   I've   lived   up 
here  and  have  look- 
ed out  these  win- 
dows ..." 


Did  you  know  that  she  is  jittery 
with  Hollywood — that  she  wants  to 
leave  the  screen — that  she  longs  to 
write  and  so  back  to  the  stage? 
And  do  you  know  why  she  has 
these  desires?  She  tells  you  in  this 
exclusive  interview! 


Tends  to  Her  Knitting 

HE    interrupted  herself  with   a  smile — the 
one  that  on  the  screen  deflates  the  ego  of 
some  vapid  suitor;  she  glided   from  the 
window  with   the  widely-spaced  steps 
that  are  typical  of  her.   Ann  Harding 
can  turn  off  her  dreams  like  turn- 
ing off  an  electric  switch  and  be 
practical  on  the  instant.    She  is 
above  all  things  practical.    She 
was  practical  now.    She  took  up 
a  pink  bundle  of  yarn  and  sat 
down    before    the    fire — to    knit. 
Imagine,   if  you   will,    any   other 
screen  star  knitting — even  before 
an  interviewer. 
"It's  one  of  those  things  to  wear 
over   the    shoulders   when    I    have 
breakfast    in    bed.      The    mornings 
have  been  so  cold." 

"Hello,  Mother!" 
A  little  figure  had  come  hopping  into 
the  room — a  little  figure  with  two  long 
curls  the  color  of  Ann  Harding's  own 
pale    golden    hair.       It    was    Jane, 
three-and-a-half-year-old     edition 
of  her  mother,  a  quickly-moving, 
tautly  nervous  child — and  a  much- 
guarded  child  since  the  Lindbergh 
kidnaping.     Escaped  now  from 
her   nurse,    she   was    dancing 
around  us,  improvising  the 
dialogue   of  an   imaginary 
play-scene. 

The  child  danced  away 
laughing,     to     be     recap- 
tured by  the  stolid  nurse. 
A  Jap  boy,  noiseless,  as 
if  on  castors,  rolled  away 
with    the    remains   of  our 
tea.    We  lighted  cigarettes. 
Small  flames  were  eating 
at  the  heap  of  logs  in  the 
great  fireplace.  Outside 
the  windows,  the  clouds 
were  boiling  down  above 
Cahuenga  Pass.     It  was 
cold  in  Hollywood. 

Ann  Harding  has  been 
feeling  the  coldness  and 
inconsistency  of  Holly- 
wood— a  condition  with- 
out  relation  to  the 
{Continued  on  page  64) 


According  to  rumor,  sensi- 
tive Ann  is  slated  to  do 
"sexy"  roles.  Can  this  be 
behind  her  desire  to  leave 
the  screen?

Who  knows  what  Marlene  is  really

famous  for  her  studies  of  character 
from  handwritins! — and  tells  you  here 
what  she  finds  in  Marlene  s  sisnature. 
The  German  star,  herself,  could  hardly 
tell  you  more! 


MARLENE  DIETRICH'S  signature— repro- 
duced herewith—  gives  the  graphologist  an 
enormous  surprise.  For  what  have  all  the 
publicity  men  featured  in  their  blurbs  about 
the  German  sensation?  You  all  know  as  well  as  I  do  — 
LE<  IS,  and  nor  much  of  anything  else.  But  ask  her  direc- 
tor and  her  business  manager,  and  1  am  sure  that  they  will 
tell  you  thai  they  have  found  her  to  have  a  head  for 
business  and  a  good  understanding  as  well. 

No,  I  didn't  mean  that  last  characteristic  as  a  joke, 
although  you  may  think  that  1  was  guilty  of  a  pun,  which 
is  a  serious  crime  in  this  country.  1  mean  that  she  has 
the  ability  to  think  quickly  and  to  the  point  on  any  subject 

that    seems    to    her

worth  while.  Also, 
that  she  has  a  sudden 
feeling  or  intuition 
that  is  often  of  great 
assistance    to    her    m 


outguessing  the  ''other  fellow,  when  trying  to  carry 
out  her  plans.  See  if  your  handwriting  shows  the  lirrle 
breaks  in  the  connecting  strokes  of  the  small  letters  that 
Marlene  lias  in  her  words.  If  so.  you  also  have  intuition 
and  should  use  it  to  the  best  advantage. 

Her  handwriting  reveals  Marlene  Dietrich  as  a  person 
who  has  enormous  pride,  as  shown  by  the  inflated  letter 
formations  and  high  capitals;  and  there  is  a  dislike  of  fuss; 
conventionality  in  every  stroke  of  her  writing.  Look  at  the 
reproduction  of  her  signature  and  notice  the  sweep  and 
swirl  of  the  connecting  stroke  between  her  first  and  last 
name,  which  is  just  like  a  high-flung  gesture  of  defiance. 

Also,  nonce  how  few  ol  her  letter-formations  follow  the 
accepted  rules  of  writing,  as  she  forms  her  letters  according 
to  her  own  ideas  and  not  those  ol  others.  I  herefore,  she 
will  always  be  happier  and  more  successful  it  she  is  allowed 
to  work  our  her  own  destiny  as  far  as  possible,  without 
too  much  interference,  either  from  her  family  or  from  her 
business  associates.

By    Gladys    Hall 


THEY  say  that  Warren  William  looks 
like  John  Barrymore,  talks  like  John 
Barrymore,  is  like  John  Barrymore — with 
a  dash  of  Adolphe  Menjou  thrown  in. 
They  say  that  he  is  dangerous.  He  is  called  a 
Romantic  Menace.  With  that  smile  and  those 
eyes,  he  looks  as  if  he  might  have  a  Past.  As  a  gal  once 
observed  to  me,  longingly  if  inelegantly,  "That  Warren 
William — he  has  what  it  takes !" 

You've  seen  him  fairly  recently  with  Lil  Dagover  in 
"The  Woman  from  Monte  Carlo."  You've  also  seen  him 
with  Bebe  Daniels  in  "The  Honor  of  the  Family."  You've 
watched  him  playing  opposite  Marian  Marsh  in  "Under 
Eighteen."  His  most  recent  effort  has  been  "The  Mouth- 
piece," which  was,  at  once,  his  seventh  picture  and  his 
stardom. 

How  did  he  get  this  way?  What  is  his  past?  Did  he 
grow  up  in  some  Continental  city,  exploring  life  and  love, 
wise  in  the  ways  of  women  and  the  wiles  of  the  world? 
^  ou'll  be  surprised! 

Warren  was  born,  of  solid  German  parents,  in  the  very 
small  town  of  Atkins,  Minnesota — in  such  a  town,  among 
such  people,  as  Sinclair  Lewis  wrote  about  in  "Main 
Street."  His  father  published  a  couple  of  small-town 
newspapers  and  always  wished  that  he  had  been  an  actor. 
In  those  days,  Warren  told  me,  it  wasn't  respectable  to  be 
an  actor.    He  added,  "It  probably  isn't  now — " 

When  Warren  was  a  youngster,  he  thought  he'd  like  to 
become  an  engineer.  But  as  he  could  never  add  two  and 
two  together  and  make  them  come  out  four,  he  decided 
that  he  lacked  the  proper  qualifications.  At  times  it 
appealed  to  him  to  be  a  newspaper  publisher  like  Dad. 


Would  you  think, 
to  look  at  Warren 
William,  who 
reaches  stardom  in 
"T  he  Mouth- 
piece," that  he 
grew  up  in  an 
American  small 
town? 


It  would  be  fun  to  say  what  he  really 
thought  about  neighbors  who  got  snooty 
when  their  windows  were  broken  or  a 
can  was  tied  to  their  old  cat's  tail.  He 
was  that  kind  of  small  boy. 

He  never  paid  any  attention  to  small 
girls,  except  his  two  sisters,  and  there  he  couldn't  help 
himself.  Girls  were  nuisances,  cry-babies,  pests.  He  had, 
really,  only  one  passion,  and  it  might  not  be  going  too  far 
to  say  that  he  has  only  one  passion  now — the  same  one. 
He  longed  for  the  sea.  As  a  boy  his  most  absorbing  game 
was  to  play  in  water — puddles  left  by  the  rains,  brooks, 
the  lakes  that  dot  his  native  state.  Blue  water  with  a 
white  sail  on  it  was  bluer  and  fairer  to  Warren  than  any 
girl's  blue  eyes  topped  by  a  white  hair  ribbon  .  .  . 

He  never  once  thought  of  becoming  an  actor.  He  didn't 
know  any  actors.  He  never  even  thought  about  actors. 
There  had  never  been  a  theatrical  personage  in  the  family. 
They  were  all  musical,  the  William  family. 

In  high  school,  Warren  took  small  parts  in  the  school 
plays,  but  no  one  ever  paid  much  attention  to  his  desultory 
and  usually  minor  performances.  No  one  ever  said, 
"Here  is  another  Booth!"  Least  of  all,  himself.  He  took 
it  all  as  a  part  of  the  school  work  and  got  through  the 
performances  as  he  got  through  the  Latin  grammar. 

He  graduated  from  high  school  without  an  idea  of  what 
he  wanted  to  be.  One  of  his  sisters  said  to  him,  at  random, 
"Why  don't  you  be  an  actor,  Warren?"  And  that  casual 
sentence  decided  him. 

He  couldn't  think  of  any  good  reason  why  he  should  not 
be  an  actor.    So  he  packed  his  bags,  took  a  train  for  New

Hollywood  Called  It  Madness, 
But  Columbo  Called  It  Luck 

Russ   Columbo   used   to   do   the   vocal   work  for  screen  heroes  who  were  supposed 

to  be  singing — but  he  never  got  a  break,  himself.      And  when  a  famous  song-writer 

"discovered"    him    and    predicted    he    would    be    a    radio    sensation,    Hollywood 

laughed.      Now  the  producers  are  asking  Russ  to  give  THEM  a  break! 


RUSS  c  o  - 
LUMB  O, 
believe  it  or 
^  not  (and 
Mr.  Ripley  has  docu- 
ments on  file  to  prove 
it),  is  the  twelfth  child 
of  a  twelfth  child  of  a 
twelfth  child.The  mag- 
ic of  the  number  twelve 
has  spun  itself  into 
the  entire  fabric  of  his 
life.  And  with  music 
and  Latin  heroes  com- 
ing back  to  the  screen, 
it's  a  bet  that  in  the 
next  twelve  months, 
he'll  be  back  in  Hol- 
lywood— where  he  got 
his  start.  He  has 
proved  that  he  can  get 
along  without  Holly- 
wood, but  can  the 
movies  get  along  with- 
out the  Columbo  that 
America  has  discov- 
ered? 

It  was  almost  twelve 
weeks  to  the  hour  from 
the  night  lie  was 
"  found  "  in  an  obscure 
Hollywood  night-club 
by  Con  Conrad,  the 
song-writer,  until  the 
afternoon  last  October 
when  he  was  called 
into  the  offices  of  the 
National  Broadcasting 

Company  in  New  York  and  signed  to  a  radio  contract. 
Twelve  short,  but  eventful  weeks  that  brought  him  from 
the  oblivion  of  an  off-stage  voice  in  the  movies  to  the 
pinnacle  of  popularity  with  millions  of  radio  followers 
throughout  America! 

And  again  the  number  twelve!  The  lucky  stars  that 
found  him  in  Hollywood  and  led  him  away  from  an 
income  of  fifty  dollars  a  week  (some  weeks)  are  com- 
manding for  him  twelve  hundred  dollars  a  day  at  present. 

Russ  was  born  in  San  Francisco  on  a  rainy  day  in  1908. 
An  electrical  storm  had  devastated  the  city's  telephone 
system,  and  Russ's  father  still  swears  to  the  story  that  it 
took  twelve  attempts  to  get  word  to 
the  family  physician  that  his  pres- 
ence was  an  immediate  necessity.  By        PAUL

His  Real  Name 
HE  nervous  and 
distraught  parent 
was  so  elated  that  his 
twelfth  child  was  a  son 
that  he  decided  to 
give  the  infant  an  im- 
posing name — and  so 
the  future  Romeo  was 
christened  Ruggerio 
Eugenio  di  Rodolpho 
Columbo.  The  family, 
incidentally,  traces  its 
lineage  back  to  the 
great  Italian  discov- 
erer, for  whom  is 
claimed  the  relation- 
ship of  a  great-to-the- 
nth -degree-grand- 
father. Expediency 
soon  cut  the  long  name 
down  to  "Russ,"  al- 
though his  mother  and 
father  to  this  day  call 
him  "Ruggerio  Euge- 
nio." It  is  a  matter  of 
ritual  and  superstition 
with  them. 

When  Russ  was  five, 
his  family  moved  to 
Philadelphia,  where 
his  father  engaged  in 
the  private  banking 
business.  The  bank 
was  a  small  one  in  the 
Italian  quarters  of  the 
city.  In  a  tenement 
house  next-door  to  the 
bank  lived  one  Antonio  Laveri,  a  teacher  of  music,  who 
had  been  in  this  country  but  a  few  years.  In  Rome, 
Laveri  had  been  a  famous  voice  and  music  teacher  and  it 
was  to  his  garret  quarters  that  Columbo,  Sr.,  took  his  son 
for  a  musical  education. 

In  short  order  Russ  was  playing  a  guitar  that  was  almost 

as  large  as  himself,  and  before  the  first  twelve  months  of 

his  instruction  had  been  completed,  the  lad  was  singing  the 

Italian  operas  with  a  display  of  talent  that  was  unique  for 

one  of  his  immature  years.     Financial  reverses  and  the 

death  of  two  of  his  brothers  compelled  the  Columbo  family 

to  return  Westward,   and  this  time  they  settled  in    the 

growing     village     of    Hollywood.

Who  Arc  the  NEW  Garbos 
of  the  Screen? 


{Continued  from  page  21) 


in  London,  two  years  after  her  debut,  was 
starred  in  three  English  pictures.  She  also 
made  pictures  in  Germany,  which  may  ac- 
count for  the  rumor  that  she  had  "under- 
studied" Marlene  Dietrich  in  that  country. 
This  is  not  true.  Sari  has  never  done  stage 
work  and  was  better  known  as  a  film  star  in 
Europe  than  Marlene. 

Sari  (whose  name  is  pronounced  Shar-ee 
Mar-eet-za)  says  she  does  not  want  to  do 
mysterious,  exotic  roles  in  American  pic- 
tures. She  believes  her  forte  to  be  light 
comedy,  and  her  first  Paramount  picture,  in 
which  she  will  be  featured,  not  starred,  is 
likely  to  be  "The  Girl  in  the  Headlines." 
This  will  offer  little  Maritza  something  of  a 
Nancy  Carroll  role — the  innocent  little  girl 
who  is  mistaken  for  a  "lady  with  a  past." 
She  should  be  plenty  interesting — even 
though  Sari  is  a  cinch  not  to  cause  Garbo  a 
single  haunted  night. 

The  One  Who's  Most  Like  Garbo 

AT  Universal,  they  are  equally  anxious  to 
L  preserve  Tala  Birell  from  the  hatchets 
of  those  who  insist  there  can  be  only  one 
Garbo.  According  to  Tala,  herself,  nothing 
will  make  her  so  miserable  as  to  be  compared 
to  Garbo.  But  in  spite  of  all  that  Universal 
or  Tala  can  do,  she  is  bound  to  evoke  com- 
parisons. 

She  is  more  of  an  authentic  exotic  than 
Sari  Maritza.  She  is  calm  and  quiet — which 
necessarily  spells  mystery  to  Hollywood. 
She  is  blonde,  tall,  willowy,  unusual  looking. 
She  lives  quietly  with  her  sister  and  has 
never  attended  a  Hollywood  party — from 
natural  choice.  But  such  isolation  is  so  defi- 
nitely stamped  a  part  of  the  Garbo  legend 
that  it  will  be  difficult  for  Tala  to  deny  that, 
in  this  at  least,  she  is  like  Garbo. 

•At  first  glance,  she  is  not  beautiful — but 
her  face  is  singularly  fascinating.  Her  move- 
ments have  an  awkward  grace.  Her  figure  is 
commonly  termed  "boyish."  (Incidentally, 
she  is  the  first  of  all  the  foreign  charmers  to 
have  the  Garbo  figure.)  She  seems  shy  and 
anxious  to  be  agreeable  and  liked — one  of 
the  few  ways  in  which  she  differs  from 
Garbo. 

She  was  born  Natalie  Bierl  in  Bucharest, 
Roumania,  in  1908.  Her  family  was  in  pros- 
perous circumstances  during  the  early  years 
of  her  life  and  Natalie,  or  Tala,  enjoyed  the 
finest  schooling  available.  Financial  disaster 
overtook  her  father  when  Tala  was  about 
ten  and,  from-then  on,  things  were  very  hard 
for  the  little  family.  Her  mother  who,  before 
her  marriage  to  Mr.  Bierl,  was  the  Baroness 
Sahaydahowska  of  Poland,  accepted  any 
kind  of  work  that  would  mean  bread  and  a 
roof  over  the  head  of  Tala  and  her  sister.  To 
this  day,  Tala's  chief  ambition  is  to  make  so 
much  money  in  pictures  that  her  mother  can 
live  in  luxury  for  the  rest  of  her  life. 

She  became  interested  in  the  stage  at  the 
age  of  fifteen,  and  through  her  vocal  teacher 
she  managed  to  get  an  engagement  in  "Ma- 
dame Pompadour."  Max  Reinhardt  saw  her 
in  this  small  role  and  signed  her  immediately 
for  the  lead  in  "Es  Liegt  in  der  Luft"  in 
Berlin.  Her  success  was  instantaneous  and 
she  alternated  European  stage  productions 
with  European  films. 


How  Talented  Tala  Is 

ALMOST  a  year  ago  she  was  engaged  by 
t  Universal  to  come  to  America  to  make 
the  German  version  of  the  picture  "Boudoir 
Diplomat,"  and  so  intrigued  were  the 
Laemmles  that  she  was  given  a  long-term 
contract.  For  seven  months  Carl  Laemmle, 
Jr.,  searched  for  a  suitable  screen  story  for 
her,  while  Tala  perfected  her  English.  After 
many  plays  and  scenarios  had  been  read,  it 
was  decided  that  Tala  should  make  her  star- 
ring debut  before  the  American  public  in 
"Mountains  in  Flame."  In  this,  she  plays  a 
peasant  girl;  but  in  "Nana,"  her  second  pic- 
ture, she  will  play  a  worldly  courtesan. 

Tala  Birell  can't  escape  it — she  is  going  to 
be  compared  to  Garbo — but  with  a  little  fair 
play  from  the  public,  she  should  be  an  inter- 
esting addition  to  the  field  of  exotics. 

Lil  Dagover,  First  National's  contribu- 
tion to  the  ranks  of  the  exotics,  is  a  more 
familiar  figure  to  the  American  public,  as  her 
first  starring  picture,  "The  Woman  from 
Monte  Carlo,"  has  been  released  for  several 
months.  It  is  the  opinion  of  a  great  many 
critics  that  Dagover  was  innocently  a  pawn 
in  a  great  studio's  move  to  manufacture  an 
alluring  star  to  compete  with  Garbo. 

Her  first  picture  did  not  live  up  to  any 
such  expectation.  Dagover  seemed  unnatu- 
rally repressed  and  her  close-ups  throughout 
the  film  seemed  studiedly  similar  to  Greta's. 
As  another  Garbo  she  did  not  quite  fill  the 
bill.  Yet  a  great  many  people  believe  that 
Dagover's  second  film  venture  in  America 
will  prove  more  successful.  Even  the  studio 
who  sponsored  her  is  looking  for  a  story 
more  animated  and  more  adapted  to  her  in- 
dividual talents. 

Pola  a  Brunette  Rival? 

RKO  heads  its  imported-glamour  list  with 
the  name  of  Pola  Negri,  who's  bru- 
nette, not  blonde  like  Garbo.  Strictly  speak- 
ing, Pola  is  not  a  "new"  exotic.  In  the  days 
of  silent  pictures,  she  was  a  scarlet  flame  of 
interest  in  the  movie  world.  But  her  studio 
feels  that  in  the  new,  talking  Pola  a  different 
and  fascinating  figure  will  take  her  place 
upon  the  screen.  "You  have  never  seen 
Negri  until  you  hear  her"  is  their  boast.  And 
so,  because  Pola  offers  a  new  angle  on  an  old 
movie  flame,  she  is  included  in  this  list  of 
experimental  exotics.  Particularly  since  she 
has  a  voice  almost  as  deep  as  Garbo's. 

In  "The  Woman  Between"  and  "Friends 
and  Lovers,"  RKO  was  suspected  of  trying 
to  build  Lily  Damita  into  "another  Garbo," 
but  Lily  just  couldn't  be  anyone  but  her 
own  spontaneous,  gay  self.  Pola,  however, 
likes  tragic  roles. 

Humorously  enough,  M-G-M  finds  itself 
holding  a  contract  with  a  girl,  who,  by  no 
conscious  effort  on  the  studio's  part,  threat- 
ens to  develop  into  Garbo  competition — 
Karen  Morley.  The  moviegoers,  themselves, 
have  made  an  exotic  of  this  American  college 
girl  who  talks  with  such  a  deep,  husky 
"Garbo"  voice.  Karen,  too,  is  blonde  and 
tall  and  built  along  the  slender  lines  that 
Garbo  has  made  famous. 

It  would.be  amusing  if  the  real,  honest-to- 
goodness  Garbo  "menace"  were  developed 
right  under  the  nose  of  the  home  studio ! 


Did  You  Knoiv  That  .  .   . 

Paul  Muni,  who  plays  the  title  role  of  "Scarface"  (see  page  42),  never  wants  to  be  a  star — as  stars 
can  so  seldom  do  a  variety  of  roles  ?

Hollywood  Speaks  Its  Mind 
About  Tallulah  Bankhead 


{Continued  from  page  26) 


another  to  know  her  through  every-day 
working  hours.  We  made  a  picture  together 
in  the  East,  'My  Sin,'  and  while  it  wasn't  a 
world-beater  as  a  picture — it  proved  one 
thing  very  definitely.  Tallulah  is  one  swell 
scout  to  work  with.  She's  never  tempera- 
mental— except  with  important  people. 
The  'props'  and  the  cameramen  swear  by 
her." 

A  Certain  Exclusive  Photographer:  "What 
eyes!  What  poise!  What  a  mouth!  What 
champagne!    What  a  woman!" 

Marie  Dressier:  "I  haven't  met  her,  my 
dear,  but  do  tell  me  about  her.  Is  she  as 
original  and  interesting  as  I  hear  she  is? 
Tell  me  at  once  all  the  witty  and  daring 
things  she  says.  I  assure  you  I  am  not  too 
young  to  hear." 

"She's  What  the  Public  Wants" 

ERNST  LUBITSCH,  director:  "She  has 
color — she  is  different.  So  far  the 
camera  has  not  seen  her  best  work.  Her 
stories  must  be  selected  with  the  same  care 
as  are  Garbo's  and  Dietrich's  to  do  Miss 
Bankhead  justice.  But  as  a  personality  she 
is  what  the  public  wants  right  now — a 
smart,  sophisticated  woman." 

Eileen  Percy,  former  screen  star  and  now  a 
social  columnist:  "  I  haven't  seen  her  around 
much.  Not  at  parties,  anyway.  But  she 
must  be  a  real  movie  fan  from  all  I've  seen 
and  heard.  I've  seen  her  at  a  couple  of 
previews,  myself.  She  sits  off  quietly  in  a 
dark  corner,  usually  trying  to  get  an  un- 
interrupted puff  on  a  cigarette  before  an 
usher  catches  her.  She  doesn't  have  much 
luck!  Those  ushers  are  really  firemen  in 
disguise — if  you  were  to  ask  Tallulah." 

We  were  all  set  to  ask  Marlene  Dietrich 
her  reaction  to  the  startling  woman  who  will 
divide  Paramount  queening  honors  with 
her,  when  someone  tipped  us  off  that 
Tallulah  and  Marlene  weren't  supposed  to 
be  so  friendly.  The  story  goes  that  they  met 
at  a  big  formal  tea.  Just  because  the  girls 
didn't  drawl  over  one  another  in  a  general 
breakdown  of  gushing  flattery,  the  hint  got 
around  that  things  weren't  so  pink  between 
them.  Just  a  hint,  you  understand,  but 
somehow  we  didn't  stop  Alarlene  to  ask  her 
about  Tallulah. 

William  Haines:  "She's  renting  my 
Hollywood  house,  and  all  I  can  say  is  that 
she  is  one  grand  tenant.  I've  met  her  only 
once  in  one  of  those  landlord-tenant  sessions 
to  see  that  everything  about  the  house  was 
all  right.  They  tell  me  she  likes  my  house  so 
well  she  doesn't  like  to  go  out  to  parties,  but 
wants  her  friends  to  come  to  her.  I'm  glad 
she  likes  the  place — it's  flattering.  She 
strikes  me  as  a  person  of  rare  good  taste." 

Why  Dot  Wants  to  Know  Her 

DOROTHY  MACKAILL:  "If  she  put 
dear  old  London  on  its  ear  the  way 
I've  read  she  did,  she  must  be  glorious.  I'd 
like  to  know  her." 

"Sunshine"  Duncan,  hostess  at  the  Em- 
bassy Club:  "You  could  have  knocked  me 
over  with  a  feather  the  first  day  she  came  up 
here.  I  don't  know  what  I  had  expected 
from  Tallulah  Bankhead — but,  anyway,  she 
wasn't  it.  She  came  in  late  with  her  man- 
ager and  took  an  inconspicuous  table  off  in  a 


corner.  I  suppose  I  expected  the  sensa- 
tional Tallulah  to  talk  in  a  hoarse  voice  that 
could  be  heard  all  over  the  room — but  she 
was  the  quietest  and  most  inconspicuous 
luncher  we've  had  in  many  a  day.  She  wore 
a  plain  suit  and  a  little  hat  pulled  down  over 
her  head.  And  she  ate  a  real  honest-to- 
goodness  non-diet  meal.  I  don't  believe  her 
figure  is  as  thin  as  most  of  our  Hollywood 
stars,  bur  she  seems  to  enjoy  herself  a  little 
more — at  least,  at  lunch  time." 

Joan  Crawford:  "Douglas  has  known 
Tallulah  for  years  and  years.  We  came  out 
on  the  train  with  her.  She's  one  grand 
traveling  companion.  We  all  laughed  until 
we  ached.  Of  course,  Hollywood  is  terribly 
on  tiptoe  about  Tallulah — and  the  funny 
part  of  it  is  Tallulah  is  just  as  interested 
about  Hollywood.  She  wanted  to  know  all 
there  was  to  know  about  Greta  Garbo  and 
Jackie  Cooper.  Her  two  screen  favorites 
reveal  as  much  as  anything  the  extremes  in 
Tallulah's  make-up.  Greta  and  Jackie  are 
her  favorite  stars." 

One  of  Gable's  Regrets 

CLARK  GABLE-  "Of  course,  I  would 
enjoy  playing  opposite  her — though  it 
isn't  very  likely  that  anything  like  that 
could  happen,  due  to  contracts  and  things. 
But  the  time  will  never  come  that  I  wouldn't 
enjoy  making  a  picture  with  a  star  as  inter- 
esting as  Miss  Bankhead.  I've  seen  one  of 
her  pictures." 

LupeVelez:  "Me?  I  thought  Lupe  would 
bust  when  she  read  that  thees  Miss  Bank- 
head  say  Garee  Cooper  ees  too  meek  as  a 
loffer.  She  mus'  have  sense  of  humor  like 
Lupe's." 

Josef  von  Sternberg,  director:  "Her  screen 
stories  have  not  been  particularly  good  so 
far.  It  is  difficult  to  judge  her  as  an 
actress." 

Mary  Brian:  "  I've  seen  her  several  times 
about  Hollywood — at  lunch  or  at  the 
theatre — and  I  think  her  fascinating,  really. 
She  seems  to  be  one  of  those  persons  that 
other  women  just  love  to  look  at.  Her 
clothes  are  awfully  smart  and  in  such  good 
taste.  Personally,  I  know  that  when  Miss 
Bankhead  is  around  I  hate  to  take  my  eyes 
off  her  lest  she  should  do  something  start- 
ling when  I'm  not  looking.  But  so  far  she 
has  been  the  quietest  and  most  dignified 
person  present." 

Ina  Claire:  "There's  no  one  quite  like 
Tallulah.  You  never  know  what  she  is  going 
to  say  or  do.  I  had  tea  with  her  soon  after 
she  arrived  in  Hollywood.  She  was  reading 
a  play  when  I  arrived.  'Here,  Ina,'  she  said, 
'  here  is  a  play  written  for  me.  I  can  never 
do  a  play  written  for  me.  You  would  be 
grand  in  it.' " 

Louella  Parsons,  famous  movie  columnist: 
"The  Hollywood  writers  should  certainly 
be  grateful  for  Tallulah.  She  will  furnish 
them  a  world  of  color.  And  Hollywood  does 
need  color.  Imagine  the  hostess  at  a  tea 
party  calmly  lying  down  on  the  divan  and 
taking  a  nap  in  the  midst  of  the  festivities! 
Tallulah  did  just  that — not  because  she 
wanted  to  show  off  or  be  different — but  be- 
cause Tallulah  always  does  just  wdiat  she 
wants  to  do  when  she  wants  to  do  it.  Per- 
sonally, I'm  for  Tallulah — and  color!" 


Did  You  Know  That  .   .  . 

Tallulah  Bankhead  denied  she  was  engaged  to  Joel  McCrea  by  saying:  "Ridiculous!  I've  met  the 
man  only  once!"  ?

How  do  Dancers 
Manage? 

The  professional  engagements  of  a  dancer 
make  no  allowance  for  the  trying  time 
of  a  woman's  monthly  sickness.  Menstru- 
ating must  not  interfere  with  her  easy, 
effortless  performance. 

There  was  a  time  when  a  stage  career 
was  closed  to  any  woman  whose  periods 
were  too  severe.  But  this  handicap  has 
now  been  removed.  Women  of  the  stage 
(and  a  million  others)  use  Midol. 

What  is  Midol?  It  isn't  some  sinister 
drug.  It  isn't  even  a  narcotic.  In  fact, 
is  as  harmless  as  the  aspirin  you  take  for 
a  headache.  But  one  little  tablet  stops  all 
discomfort  five  to  seven  minutes  after 
it  is  swallowed!  And  if  you  anticipate 
your  time  and  take  Midol  just  before, 
you  won't  have  even  that  first  twinge  of 
periodic  pain. 

So,  the  time  of  month  doesn't  bother 
the  dancer  who  has  learned  to  rely  on 
Midol.  She  is  always  in  line,  on  time,  on 
her  toes  and  smiling.  This  merciful 
medicine  protects  her  from  the  possibility 
of  such  pain  for  hours  at  a  stretch.  It 
brings  complete  comfort,  and  it  does  not 
interfere  with  the  natural,  normal  men- 
strual process.  So,  it's  folly  for  any  woman 
to  suffer  at  any  stage  of  her  monthly 
period.  Any  drugstore  has  the  slim  little 
box  that  tucks  in  your  purse.  Just  ask 
for  Midol. 


Shall  The  Movies  Take  Orders 
From    The  Underworld? 


{Continued  from  page  43) 


"gangsters."  In  fact,  such  hoodlums  are 
only  small  pawns  in  a  great  game.  When 
they  "rub  someone  out,"  they  are  merely 
acting  on  orders  from  higher-ups.  Racke- 
teering and  gangdom  couldn't  exist  for  a 
minute  if  police  and  other  officials  were  all 
honest.  The  fact  that  it  does  exist  un- 
hindered means  that  gangster  money  has 
been  "split"  in  bribes.  Protection  is  sold — 
by  someone  in  political  power.  And  in  this 
case  the  crooked  politician  is  just  as  much  a 
racketeer  and  gangster  as  Capone,  the  late 
"Legs"  Diamond  or  the  late  Vincent  Coll. 
(By  the  way,  the  shooting  of  innocent  chil- 
dren, for  which  Coll  was  tried,  is  also 
mentioned  in  this  picture.) 

No  wonder  the  underworld  didn't  want 
"Scarface"  shown  to  an  already  outraged 
citizenry  just  at  the  time  when  Judge  Sea- 
bury  was  "putting  on  the  heat"! 

When  the  word  went  out  that  "Scarface" 
was  to  be  stopped,  gangdom  immediately 
decided  its  strongest  weapon  was — CEN- 
SORSHIP. In  every  state  where  it  exists, 
censorship  is  a  political  matter.  Censors 
are  politicians,  appointed  by  politicians, 
doing  the  bidding  of  politicians.  And  it  has 
been  proved — not  only  in  New  York,  but  in 
other  cities — that  gangdom  can  often  get  to 
politicians. 

The  word  was  mysteriously  passed  along 
to  United  Artists,  which  was  to  release  the 
picture,  and  to  the  office  of  Will  H.  Hays, 
head  of  the  Motion  Picture  Producers  and 
Distributors  of  America,  Inc.,  that  "Scar- 
face" must  not  be  shown  in  its  original 
form.  The  career  of  Al  Capone  was  too 
touchy  a  matter  to  tamper  with. 

What  Capone,  Himself,  Said 

IF  you  think  it  is  a  far-fetched  idea  that 
gangdom  was  worried,  you  have  only  to 
refer  to  two  interviews  given  out  by  Al 
Capone  in  person — one  to  the  International 
News  Service,  and  one  to  Cornelius  Yander- 
bilt,  Jr.,  which  was  published  in  Liberty. 

"I  think  these  gangster  pictures  should 
be  stopped,"  said  Capone.  "They  are  bad 
for  the  kiddies." 

Now  here  comes  the  strangest  situation  of 
all,  and  one  which  is  probably  the  blackest 
mark  against  censorship. 

At  the  time  he  was  in  Hollywood  for  the 
Academy  banquet,  promising  in  a  speech 
directed  to  Vice-President  Charles  Curtis 
that  "motion  pictures  will  carry  the  flag," 
Mr.  Hays  asked  Howard  Hughes  to  show 
him  a  print  of  "Scarface,"  as  there  had 
been  agitation  about  it. 

After  seeing  it,  Mr.  Hays  advised  Hughes 
that  the  picture  must  be  "changed"  and 
"toned  down."  The  title  "Scarface"  must 
absolutely  be  dropped. 

In  vain  did  Hughes  point  out  that  every 
gangster  picture  for  a  year  had  been  passed, 
including  some  sentimental  and  sloppy  ones, 
making  gangsters  romantic  figures.  "The 
Doorway  To  Hell,"  "The  Secret  Six,"  "A 
Free  Soul,"  "Little  Caesar,"  "The  Public 
Enemy,"  "The  Star  Witness,"  "The 
Finger  Points,"  "The  Vice  Squad" — you 
could  name  a  score  more — all  were  passed. 

That  "Scarface"  was  so  much  more  hon- 
est and  forceful,  than  any  of  them  seemed  to 
make  no  difference.  It  was  contended  that 
showing  "Scarface"  might  cause  censor- 
ship and  political  trouble,  and  opposition 
from  women's  clubs.  Information  had  been 
received  that  "Scarface"  in  its  present 
form  would  not  be  passed  by  the  New  York 
censors.  Why?  The  only  explanation  seems 
to  be  that  "the  word"  had  gone  out.  The 
public  mind  must  not  be  inflamed  against 


gangsters    and    corrupt    government     any 
further,  at  this  crucial  political  time. 

A  Challenge  to  You 

THE  foreword  that  appeared  on  the  film 
was  a  direct  challenge  to  the  public 
It  read: 

"  This  picture  is  an  indictment  of  gang 
rule  in  America  and  of  the  callous  indiffer- 
ence of  the  government  to  this  constantly  in- 
creasing menace  to  our  safety  and  our  liberty. 

"Every  incident  in  this  picture  is  the  re- 
production of  an  actual  occurrence,  and  the 
purpose  of  this  picture  is  to  demand  of  the 
government:  '  What  are  you  going  to  do 
about  it?' 

"  The  government  is  your  government. 
What  are  YOU  going  to  do  about  it?" 

This,  of  course,  might  be  an  uncomfort- 
able question  to  have  the  voters  answer. 

Mr.  Hays  insisted  that  various  shooting 
scenes  should  be  eliminated  from  the  pic- 
ture, and  wanted  a  new  foreword,  advocat- 
ing a  law  against  carrying  guns — a  weak 
gesture  at  best,  compared  to  the  above 
strong  appeal.  The  picture  was  to  be  chang- 
ed, its  teeth  were  to  be  pulled — it  was  to  be 
a  compromise  that  it  might  get  by  the 
censors.  The  censors,  who  operate  in  only  a 
few  states,  would  not  be  fought. 

Hughes  had  already  spent  six  hundred 
thousand  dollars  in  making  the  picture,  and 
he  wanted  to  get  it  back,  with  a  profit.  To 
get  the  picture  widely  released,  he  spent 
nearly  a  hundred  thousand  dollars  more  in 
making  the  changes  recommended.  He  hated 
to  spend  the  extra  money,  but  much  more 
unwillingly,  he  made  the  changes. 

A  foreword  advocating  anti-gun  legisla- 
tion was  substituted.  Many  of  the  strongest 
scenes  were  eliminated,  including  the  St. 
Valentine's  Day  massacre,  and  the  end  in 
which  Scarface,  trapped  in  his  fortified 
apartment,  is  finally  blasted  out  by  tear  gas 
bombs  to  meet  a  violent  end. 

How  Scarface  Was  To  End 

ANEW  ending  was  insisted  upon —  one 
in  which  Scarface  was  to  be  politely 
but  firmly  arrested,  tried  in  a  long  trial, 
found  guilty,  sentenced,  and  then  majes- 
tically taken  off  to  be  hanged. 

Hughes  objected  to  this  on  the  ground 
that  no  gangster  of  note  has  been  hanged, 
and  very  few  imprisoned — Al  Capone  was 
put  in  jail  because  he  failed  to  make  an  in- 
come tax  return  on  his  racketeering  millions. 
The  upshot  of  it  all  was  that  Hughes  made 
the  new  ending.  He  injected  scenes  in 
which  officials  made  speeches  on  law  and 
order. 

It  was  suggested  that  the  title  "Scar- 
face," be  changed  to  some  lofty  and  highly 
inspirational  title — one  that  would  camou- 
flage the  fact  that  this  was  a  gangster  pic- 
ture, thus  getting  it  by  the  censors. 

After  many  conferences,  it  was  agreed  to 
use  the  title,  "The  Shame  of  a  Nation." 
Hughes  couldn't  stomach  this,  and,  being 
honest  and  not  liking  to  wiggle  around  cor- 
ners, wanted  to  keep  some  semblance  of  the 
"Scarface"  title.  He  suggested  "The 
Scar."  Then  the  opposing  faction  objected, 
and  the  title  became  "The  Scar  on  the 
Nation." 

Col.  Jason  Joy,  a  member  of  the  Hays 
organization  in  Hollywood,  went  East,  at 
Hughes'  expense,  with  a  print  of  the  amend- 
ed picture.  Police  Commissioner  Mul- 
rooney  of  New  York  wrote  a  strong  in- 
dorsement of  the  picture,  which  was  in- 
corporated in  the  film.

For   her   Hollywood   dermatologist   has   given 
her  the  secret  of  lasting  complexion  beauty 


A  new  movie  star  is  rising  .  .  .  Sally  Blanc. 
Thinking  of  licr  future.  Sally  asked  the  most 
prominent  dermatologist  in  Holly- 

"What   should    I   use  on  my  skin   to   keep   it 
What  do  you  tell  the  stars  to  do  to 
getting  old-lookn 

Here  is  the  advice  this  eminent  physician  gives 
to  the  stars.  Surely  this  is  the  beauty  care  you 
want  to  give  VOIR  skin:— 

day  ...  2  or  .'  times  a  day  .  .  .  use 
\\  oodbury's  Cold  Cream  to  smooth  and  soften 
your  skin.  It  replaces  the  moisture  dried  out  by 
wind,  sun  and  dry-heated  rooms,  gives  the  skin 
resilience  to  revise  wrinkles.  Most  skins  shrivel 
into  lines  because  they  are  dry.  Woodbury's 
I  ream  keeps  the  skin  full  and  firm  and 
supple. 

"An  J.  also,  you  should  use  Woodbury  "s  Facial 
Cream,  as  a  foundation  for  powder,  and  as  a 
protective  cream  before  going  outdoors.  It  pre- 
vents dust  and  powder  from  entering  the  pores, 
and  shields  your  skin  from  the  drying  effects 
of  wind  and  sun." 


1'  old  are  you:  20?  Then  use  Woodbury's 
Creams  to  preserve  the  soft  freshness  of  your 
skin.  30?  40?  Then  begin  at  once  to  use  Wood- 
bury's Creams,  to  put  back  into  your  skin  the 
rich  oils  which  keep  it  from  shrivelling  into  lines. 

Buy  Woodbury's  Coi.d  Cream  and  Woodbury's

Some  Things  Ann  Harding 
Has  Never  fold   Fill  Now 


(Continued  from  page  44) 


weather.  She  has  felt  it  because  she  is,  in 
spite  of  her  huge  practical  streak,  an  artist, 
with  an  artist's  sensitivity. 

"Too  much  goes  into  your  performance 
in  pictures  that  you're  not  responsible  for," 
she  explained.  "Rhythm,  timing,  spacing 
— the  things  that  make  up  a  good  stage 
performance — they  are  all  done  for  you  by 
other  people,  cutters,  sound  engineers,  a 
host  of  others,  f  think  that  anything  even 
bordering  on  the  creative  has  to  be  the 
product  of  one  brain."  She  flashed  a  smile 
that  mocked  the  serious  words  and  added: 
"That's  why  I'm  jittery  with  it  all." 

About  Her  Writing 

SHE  is  jittery  with  the  Hollywood  fac- 
tory system  and  perhaps  that,  also,  has 
something  to  do  with  her  new  twist  of 
ambition — her  urge  to  express  herself  in  a 
medium  that  is  unhampered — her  desire  to 
write. 

Ann  Harding  is  not  presumptuous 
enough  to  talk  about  her  first  efforts  at 
writing  fiction.  She  does  not  think  they  are 
good  enough  to  talk  about.  But  she  ad- 
mitted that  she  has  always  wanted  to 
write.  She  is  writing  for  the  first  time  now 
because  it  is  the  first  time  she  has  had  the 
time.  She  is  working  hard  at  the  self- 
imposed  job — harder  than  the  average  cub 
reporter  on  a  newspaper.  Writing  a  lot, 
tearing  up  a  lot  that  she  has  written.  There 
have  been  so  many  stories  in  her  life — so 
many  interesting  things  have  happened  to 
her  and  others  she  knows.  But  it  is  not 
always  easy  to  turn  the  vivid  recollections 
of  the  past  into  smooth,  easy  prose — and 
nothing  less  will  satisfy  this  amateur  crafts- 
man. 

Ann  has  a  guide  in  her  work,  a  young 
woman  who  was  formerly  with  a  New  York 
publishing  house.  She  is  also  Ann's  secre- 
tary. She  reads  her  work  and  criticizes  it. 
Nobody  else — not  even  Harry  C.  Bannister, 
the  actor-husband  who  is  so  near  to  her  in 
everything  else — ever  sees  a  line  of  what 
may  be  announced  some  day  as  a  first 
novel  by  Ann  Harding. 

As  a  child,  she  felt  this  urge  to  write;  it 
was  her  first  conscious  form  of  self-expres- 
sion. Then  she  was  sidetracked  into  the 
theatre — an  amazing  story.  A  story  of  how- 
Dorothy  Gatley,  working  as  a  stenog- 
rapher for  the  Metropolitan  Life  Insurance 
Company,  fed  up  on  her  job,  crashed  the 
gate  of  the  Provincetown  Players  in  Green- 
wich Village.  From  then  on  Dorothy  Gat- 
ley, stenographer,  was  Ann  Harding,  a 
Broadway  star.  Beginning  with  "Tar- 
nished," through  "The  Trial  of  Mary 
Dugan,"  she  shot  from  one  triumph  to  an- 
other till  she  had  gained  an  eminence  in  her 
craft  that  made  her  eligible  for  a  fat  con- 
tract in  the  movies. 

And  the  movies  have  disillusioned  her, 
sickened  her,  made  her  regret  she  ever 
entered  them.  Now  she  has  to  reconstruct 
her  world — the  world  she  knew  as  a  stage 
artist,  the  world  the  movies  have  de- 
stroyed for  her. 

Guesses  She's  Temperamental 
"T  CONSIDER  myself  through  with 
±  'moom  pictures'  even  now,"  she  told 
me  with  a  smile,  the  frankly  cheerful  smile 
that  makes  her  such  good  company  on  the 
screen.  "  I'm  temperamental,  Mr.  Ryan.  I 
thought  they  were  paying  me  for  something 
more  than  just  a  face  to  photograph  and  a 
voice  to  register.  But  if  that's  all  they  will 
take,  that's  all  I  can  give  them.  That's 
being  temperamental,  I  guess,  isn't  it?" 


"Sounds  like  good  sense  to  me." 

"Not  in  the  'moom  pictures'."  She 
leaned  forward  earnestly.  "Won't  you 
please  absolve  me  from  blame  for  the  pic- 
tures in  which  I  appear?  I  have  no  voice  in 
the  selection  of  stories.  And  when  it  comes 
to  the  making,  the  same  holds  true." 

Then  she  confessed  to  an  unusual  thing. 
This  high-salaried  star,  who  admits  she 
likes  to  take  breakfast  in  bed,  begged  her 
producers  to  let  her  make  two  pictures  a 
year  instead  of  four  and  make  them  twice  as 
good  and  take  half,  instead  of  her  full 
salary.  They  merely  laughed.  They 
refused  her  a  voice  in  the  treatment  of 
"  Prestige,"  she  said,  and — "just  locked  me 
up  and  brought  me  out  when  they  were 
ready  to  shoot." 

She  wanted  badly  to  make  "The  Road  to 
Rome,"  the  successful  stage  satire  that  the 
studio  had  purchased  at  a  cost  of  thirty-five 
thousand  dollars.  No.  For  some  inscrutable 
reason  this  part,  cut  exactly  to  the  Harding 
measure,  was  refused  her.  They  doubted 
that  they  would  make  "The  Road  to 
Rome."  She  believes  the  studio  officials 
thought  it  was  over  the  heads  of  the 
public. 

"But  I  think  public  taste  is  definitely 
underrated,"  she  defended.  "I  think  'Hol- 
iday' proved  this.  Here  was  a  picture 
of  subtlety,  abstract  ideas,  sophisticated 
conversation — something  of  much  higher 
calibre  than  is  usually  turned  out,  and  it 
was  a  success." 

But  it  was  Ann  Harding  who  fought  for 
the  version  of  this  successful  movie  that 
finally  reached  the  screen — the  version  that 
preserved  the  feeling  of  the  stage  play. 

She's  Through  Fighting  Now 

rHE  difficulty   in   pictures,   when  you 

X  have  a  fine  thing,  is  its  translation.  A 
fine  thing  has  to  be  well  done  or  it's  worse 
than  something  not  so  good.  I  learned  my 
lesson  in  'Prestige.'  I  worked  like  a  dog, 
digging,  digging,  trying  to  do  better  work 
because  the  vehicle  was  weak,  trying  to  lift 
it.  But  I  found  that  material  can  be  so 
impossible  to  do  anything  with  that  the 
harder  you  work  the  worse  you  make  it." 

So  she  is  done  with  fighting.  She  will  do 
the  best  she  can,  the  best  they  will  let  her 
do,  and  not  kick.  Oh  yes,  she  had  made  a 
lot  of  money  in  pictures — and  she  could 
make  a  lot  more.  This  house  that  she 
dreamed  out  with  her  husband,  Harry 
Bannister — it  was  made  possible  with  pic- 
ture money.  Their  own  miniature  theatre, 
the  servants,  the  foreign  nurses  for  little 
Jane — these  were  all  made  possible  by  Hol- 
lywood gold.  But  Ann  is  willing  to  give 
them  up.  More  than  willing-eager.  She  wants 
to  write.  She  is  writing.  That  is  her  side- 
line. She  is  still  an  actress  and  hopes  to  go 
on  till  she  is  playing  old  women  on  the  stage. 

"But  I  am  looking  forward  now" — her 
face  with  the  pointed  chin  showed  the  eager- 
ness of  a  child — "  I  am  looking  forward,  not 
to  the  next  thing  in  pictures,  but  the  next 
thing  after  pictures.  I  want  to  go  back  to 
the  theatre.  You  can't  get  away  from  the 
theatre.     It  does  things  to  audiences! 

"I'd  like  to  go  back  to  the  Provincetown 
Theatre  as  it  w-as  in  Greenwich  Village. 
Lots  of  dirt  and  lots  of  coffee  drunk  during 
the  arguments  in  the  little  room  upstairs — 
but  lots  of  fun  and — something  accom- 
plished. I  would  be  happy  to  go  back  to 
play  in  Jasper  Deeter's  Hedgerow  Theatre, 
a  little  place  in  what  used  to  be  an  old  mill. 
Anything  but  the  commercial —

inatv.lv,  most  modern  married  women 
are  beginning  to  demand  the  facts.  They  con- 
sider it  their  right  to  know  the  safeguards 
that  protect  feminine  charm. 

"It  is  important  that  a  personal  anriseptic 
should  have  real  germicidal  value,  while  still 
serving  as  a  soothing  lubricant  to  delicate 
tissue.  Many  of  the  so-called  feminine  hy- 
giene solutions  fall  short  in  one  or  the  other  of 
these  respects.  Either  they  irritate  and  harden 
tender  membranes,  or  they  become  ineffective 
in  contact  with  organic  matter. 

"In  my  long  professional  practice,  I  have 
found  "I.ysol"  disinfectant  most  effective  for 
feminine  hygiene.  "I.ysol"  does  not  lose  its 
germicidal  action  in  the  presence  of  organic 
matter.  With  its  low  surface  tension,  it 
searches  out  and  destroys  undesirable  bac- 
teria lurking  in  hidden  crevices  which  other 
antiseptics  fail  to  reach.  It  is  always  uniform

Some  Things  Ann  Harding 
Has  Never  Told  Till  Now 

{Continued  from  page  64) 

"But  wouldn't  it  be  commercial  now — as 
soon  as  Ann  Harding's  name  went  up  in 
lights?" 

"I'd  wear  a  wig  if  necessary — change  my 
name!"  Her  eyes  expanded — amazingly. 
Practical  Ann  Harding  was  the  artist  now, 
explaining  her  second  great  ambition,  tell- 
ing her  plans  to  take  out  a  company  and 
tour  the  provinces  with  Susan  Glaspell's 
"Inheritors"  and  "Holiday"  by  Philip 
Barry.  "They're  starving  for  flesh-and- 
blood  actors,"  she  went  on.  "I  know  it. 
The  audiences  all  over  the  country,  in  the 
lesser  cities,  country  towns,  everywhere — 
they'll  welcome  the  stage  back  again. 

"No  ermine!"  she  exclaimed,  with  a 
wide,  glowing  gesture.  "No  foils,  no  Paris 
gowns.  No  movie  spotlight.  No  X-ray 
publicity.  Dignity,  harmony — the  pleasure 
of  doing  a  job  you  like  quietly  and  the  best 
you  can.    That's  what  I  hope  to  do." 

"When?" 

"Let's  see.  Oh,  it's  pretty  far  off,"  she 
sighed.  "Till  May  first,  1933 — if  they 
don't  take  up  my  option  .  .  .  And  it's  so 
much  money  I  don't  think  they  will. 
They'll  come  to  me  and  say,  '  In  view  of  the 
so  and  so  and  so  and  so,  you'll  have  to  take 
a  cut,  Miss  Harding  ..." 

Suddenly  she  was  on  her  feet,  waving  a 
gleeful  farewell  to  an  imaginary  movie 
magnate. 

"Good-bye!  You  play  in  your  yard — I'm 
going  to  have  fun!" 

So  Ann  Harding  really  has  two  secrets. 
And  strangely  enough,  for  so  practical  a 
creature,  they  are  both  on  the  anti-practical 
side.

looking  much  thinner  and  very  smart, 
walked  into  the  Embassy  Club  the  other 
noon  with  a  handsome  gentleman  in  tow. 
What  most  amused  the  nearby  lunchers  was 
the  close  resemblance  of  this  unknown  escort 
to  her  former  husband. 

Lawrence  Tibbett  has  just  recently  mar- 
ried a  woman  who  is  startlingly  like  his  first 
wife. 

The  Tibbetts  know  their  "type." 

ETHEL  Clayton  filed  suit  for  divorce 
against  Ian  Keith  and  politely  charged 
"cruelty" — always  a  very  nice,  vague  com- 
plaint. 

But  Ian  upset  the  apple-cart  by  being 
very  frank  with  the  newspaper  boys  who 
interviewed  him  in  his  dressing-room  be- 
tween acts  of  the  stage  play,  "Grand  Hotel." 

"What  really  fretted  Ethel,"  said  Ian 
graphically,  "was  my  continual,  confounded 
drinking!" 

JUST  out  of  curiosity,  Will  Rogers  decided 
to  drop  into  the  city  jail  and  visit  Al 
Capone  during  his  (Will's)  recent  stop- 
over in  Chicago.  Will  wanted  to  keep  his 
visit  a  secret,  but  like  all  good  celebrity- 
secrets  it  landed  on  the  front  page  of  the 
newspapers  all  over  the  country. 

A  great  many  small-town  newspapers  re- 
sented Will's  visit  to  the  notorious  gangster 
and  wrote  stinging  editorials  about  a  man 
of  Will's  public  influence  even  "dropping 
in"  on  Uncle  Sam's  largest  income-dodger.

at  the  picture.  The  word  had  gone  out  that 
-  not  to  be  passed  in  the  face  of  Judge 
Seabury's  expose  of  corruption.  Col.  Joy 
returned  to  Hollywood  with  the  print  of  the 
picture  and  it  was  further  suggested  that 
some  more  of  its  teeth  be  pulled  and  as  a 
result,  it  was  further  "toned  down." 

In  mid-February  it  was  finally  shown  to 
one  uf  the  New  York  censors,  and  lie

with  all  the  censor-appeasing  changes. 

A-  it  happened,  this  was  a  break  for  the 
picture-goers  of  the  rest  of  the  country! 

Howard  Hughes  got  fighting  mad.  He 
ordered  the  picture  restored  to  its  original 
state,  and  the  original  title,  "Scarface," 
returned.  He  announced  to  the  world  that, 
despite  all  gangland  opposition,  he  was  go-

THIS  girl's  husband  looks  at  her  with 
dismay.  He  thinks  she's  a  sad  cari-

her  fresh  good  looks.  And  what's  be-

Date  broken  because  of  bad 

skin!   Photo  specially  posed 

by  Miss  Alice  Way 


So  ashamed  of  her 
Poor  Complexion 

she  locked  herself  in  her  room ! 


A  few  weeks  later  she  had  a 
lovely  skin— a  better  figure! 

NOTJSE!  She'd  powdered  and  powdered 
but  still  those  hateful  blemishes 
showed — marred  her  charm.  She  couldn't 
keep  that  date.  Couldn't,  couldn't — no 
matter  how  much  Mother  scolded! 

Broken-hearted  over  her  complexion. 
Hiding  away  in  her  room  —  ashamed, 
afraid  to  face  people.  That's  Virginia 
when  her  story  starts  —  but  she's  a 
"changed  creature"  when  it  ends! 

She  confesses . . . 

"My  complexion  has  always  been  dull 
and  muddy  and  sometimes  it  broke  out. 
Recently  I  have  been  in  a  badly  rundown 
state,  thin,  stomach  often  upset  and  feel- 
ing low  generally.  My  skin  got  worse 
than  ever.  I  was  so  ashamed  of  it  that 
one  night  when  I  had  a  date  I  actually 
locked  myself  in  my  room. 

"Lucky  for  me,  a  friend  advised 
Ironized  Yeast.  It  purified  my  blood  so 
that  my  pimples  vanished.  It  gave  me 
an  appetite  and  I  was  able  to  take  care 
of  all  I  ate.  I  gained  six  pounds  in  three 
weeks."  Miss  Virginia  McPherson, 
6726  Honore  St.,  Chicago,  111.  This  is  only 
one  of  hundreds  of  equally  fine  reports 
from  Ironized  Yeast  users  everywhere. 

Many  quick  results 

A  radiant  complexion  is  only  one  of  the 
many  benefits  Ironized  Yeast  brings. 
This  wonderful  tonic  acts  on  the  entire 
system— helpsend  constipation,  nervous- 
ness, that  "always  tired"  feeling — at  the 
same  time  it  builds  firm,  healthy  flesh  ! 

In  IronizedYeast  you  get  rich,  specially 
cultured,  specially  imported  "beer  yeast" 


— concentrated  seven  times!  Thus  seven 
pounds  of  "beer  yeast"  are  used  to  make 
one  pound  of  the  yeast  concentrate  used 
in  Ironized  Yeast.  The  Biological  Com- 
mission of  the  League  of  Nations  regards 
this  concentration  process  as  so  vitally 
important  that — at  an  official  session  in 
Geneva,  Switzerland  —  it  recommended 
its  adoption  as  a  world-wide  standard. 

Ironized  Yeast  is  put  through  still 
another  scientific  process.  It  is  ironized 
— treated  with  three  distinct  types  of 
energizing,  blood -enriching  iron.  The 
result  is  a  pleasant,  easy-to-take  tonic 
tablet — almost  unrivalled  in  its  amazing 
body-building  results.  A  tonic  which 
helps  strengthen  the  nerves,  thestomach, 
the  intestines — adds  strong  tissue,  too! 

Tested  three  times 

Not  only  is  Ironized  Yeast  manufactured 
by  trained  experts,  but  it  is  triple-tested 
for  actual  health-building  results.  These 
tests  are  made  by  our  own  scientists,  by 
an  eminent  physician  and  by  a  professor 
of  Bio-Chemistry  in  a  famous  college. 

GUARANTEED:  Thousands  once  thin 
and  sickly  now  enjoy  radiant  health  and 
an  attractive  figure — thanks  to  Ironized 
Yeast.  If  the  very  first  package  does  not 
help  you,  too,  its  cost  will  be  gladly 
refunded.  AVOID  IMITATIONS.  Be 
sure  you  get  the  genuine  Ironized  Yeast. 
Look  for  the"  I.Y."  on  each  tablet.  At  all 
druggists.  Ironized  Yeast  Co., Atlanta.Ga.

Leo  Carrillo — an  Hombre 
After  Your  Own  Heart 

{Continued  from  page  41) 

powerful  Bandini  family,  sprung  from  Juan 
Jose  Bandini,  an  Italian  adventurer  who 
landed  near  San  Diego  in  the  early  Eight- 
eenth Century.  The  Rancho  Juahome,  a 
part  of  their  holdings,  was  the  locale  of 
Peter  B.  Kyne's  story,  "The  Pride  of 
Palomar."  It  was  here  also  that  Colonel 
Couts  of  Stockton's  forces  met  and  married 
the  Bandini  girl  who,  with  her  own  hands, 
fashioned  the  first  American  flag  ever  to  fly 
in  California. 

'A  simple  people,  those  old  pioneer  dons," 
smiles  Don  Leo,  "and  they  were  like 
children  in  the  hands  of  the  shrewd  gringos. 
They  did  not  understand  finance.  When 
debts  or  taxes  came  due,  they  snipped  off  a 
few  thousand  acres  of  land  to  pay,  as  you 
and  I  snip  coupons.  Once  my  family  owned 
millions  of  acres — and  where  is  it  now? 
Don  Carlos  Antonio  once  traded  the  island 
of  Santa  Rosa  for  eighteen  hundred  head  of 
wild  cattle,  and  we  sold  the  Coronado 
Peninsula,  now  worth  millions,  for  one 
thousand  dollars,  in  gold!  The  vast  acres, 
and  the  great  haciendas  are  gone  but,  at 
least,  by  my  efforts  to  please  Senor  Gringo 
on  the  screen  and  stage,  we  have  a  little 
slice  which  was  once  ours — El  Ranchito  de 
Los  Ailisos  ('The  Little  Ranch  of  the 
Sycamores')." 

"The  Little  Ranch  of  The  Sycamores" 
lies  in  beautiful  Santa  Monica  canyon. 
Upon  it  Don  Leo  plans  to  build  a  hacienda 
amid  the  trees  and  flowers  that  are  native 
to  the  soil.  There  he  romped  as  a  boy  while 
his  father  served  as  Santa  Monica's  first 
mayor;  on  a  great  sycamore  tree  can  be 
traced  the  initials  he  whittled  there,  many 
years  ago.  From  the  site  of  his  hacienda, 
he  can  look  out  upon  the  thousands  of  rich 
acres  that  once  belonged  to  the  ancestors 
whose  clay  has  mingled  with  the  earth 
upon  which  the  gringo  has  built  his  apart- 
ments and  his  estates.  There  also,  Don  Leo 
has  a  great  barbecue  pit  and  as  each  of  his 
pictures  is  completed,  the  entire  company, 
from  featured  players  to  scene-shifters  is 
invited  to  make  fiesta  with  him. 

His  Own  Early  History 

DON  LEO  was  born  on  Alleso  Street 
near  the  Los  Angeles  plaza.  His 
father  and  mother  were  married  in  the 
"Little  Church  of  the  Angels,"  where  so 
many  famous  marriages  of  Los  Angeles' 
younger  days  were  performed.  Finishing 
school,  he  worked  as  a  laborer  for  the  South- 
ern Pacific  to  save  the  money  necessary'  for 
the  art  education  that  was  the  goal  of  his 
ambitions  at  that  time.  Later,  going  to 
San  Francisco,  he  secured  a  berth  on  the 
Examiner  as  a  roving  cartoonist  and  re- 
porter. His  beat  was  the  infamous  "Bar- 
bary  Coast,"  where  he  rubbed  elbows  with 
the  outcasts  of  the  Seven  Seas  and  formed 
the  human  contacts  that  are  the  basis  of 
his  inimitable  screen  characterizations. 
With  him  on  the  Examiner  at  that  time, 
worked  Harrison  Fisher  (now  a  famous 
magazine  cover  artist)  "Bud"  Fisher 
(creator  of  Mutt  and  Jeff),  "Tad"  (the  late 
sports  cartoonist),  Merle  Johnson  (car- 
toonist-father of  Judith  Wood,  who  was 
born  Helen  Johnson),  and  Ashton  Stevens, 
famous  drama  critic.  It  was  through 
Stevens  that  he  later  became  an  intimate 
of  O.  Henry. 

Carrillo's  clowning  among  his  cronies 
brought  him  an  offer  of  an  Orpheum  en- 
gagement, and  young  Leo  embarked  on  a 
stage  career.  By  slow  degrees  he  worked 
his  way  into  New  York  and  eventually  to  a 
leading  place  on  Broadway.  "Hell  Bound," 
his  first  feature  picture,  was  a  sensation.  In 
this,  he  introduced  a  type  of  gangster  new  to 


68 


screen  audiences.  "True  to  life?"  lit-  I 
eloquent  eyebrow.  "And  why  not?  The  char- 
taken  directly  from  .1  very  dear 

of     mine,     'Big     Jim'     Colo*;: 
Chicago." 

In  "Lasca  of  The  Rio  Grande,"  "Homi- 

uad"  and  as  the  swaggering   Toslado 

rl  of  the  Rio.''  he  further  enham 

popularity.    In  "The  Broken  Wing," 

mpleted,  he  gives  a  performance  that 

will    make    him   one   of   the   screen's    finest 

character  actors.     A  far  cry  from  his  first 

1  ork  vaudeville  ■  it,  when  he 

ly  wrote  home  that  he  was  so  popular 

that    the    manager    made   him    give    three 

shows  every  day! 

Meet  His  Guardian 

A  PICTURE    of     Don     Leo    without    his 
ent  and  devoted  Chinese  servant, 
would   be   incomplete.     I 
than  a  servant.    It  is  he  who  se< 
Leo  does  not  have  two  spoons  of  sugar  in 
when  the  doctor  says  but  one.     In 
every  one  of    Don    Leo's   pictures,  Ling   is 
given  a  small  part.    Once  on  the  set.  1  >on 
Leo    introduced    the   old    Chinaman    to    a 
juished  lady  visitor. 
_."  said  Don  Leo  proudly,  "has  been 
with  me  twenty  years." 

"Humph!"  growled  Ling,  turning  away, 

"too  d long  too!" 

A  strange  combination  of  Latin  romanti- 
cism and  Yankee  practicality,  Don  Leo 
retains  the  courtly  grace  for  which  the  true 
is  famous,  but  can  drive  a  bargain 
with  the  shrewdness  of  a  gringo  profiteer. 
Near  the  borders  of  "El  Ranchito  de  los 
Allisos"  he  led  me  to  a  small,  white-walled 
plot  marked  by  three  simple  headstones. 

"Here  lies  the  tragedy  of  my  race,"  he 

said  simply.    "On  this  plot,  long  before  the 

came,  these  people  built  their  home 

of    adobe.      Around    them    on    these    hills 

grazed  their  thousands  of  cattle  and  the  land 

was  theirs  as  far  as  the  eye  could  reach. 

You  can  yet  see  where  the  w-alls  of  their 

stood.  In  this  corner  is  the  grave  of 

-t  owner  of  those  vast  acres.    It  is  in 

exactly  the  spot  where  sat  the  bed  upon 

which  he  was  born.     He  and  the  house  he 

built  have  both  returned  to  the  earth  from 

which    they   sprang    while   the   gringo    has 

built  a  great  city  around  them.   There  is  the 

romance  and  the  tragedy  of  old  California." 

The  old  California  that  could  produce  a 

Leo  Carrillo — a  gay  caballero,  an  adventurer 

in  the  field  of  dramatics!

Save  ELASTICITY 

— it  makes  stockings  fit 


Those    dowdy    little    wrinkles    at    the 
ankle  and  he  el. .  .seams  that  ride  around 

.  .  .  do  you  know  why  they  happen? 

When  your  stockings  are  new, 
they  fit  smoothly  and  hug  the  leg 
closely  because  the  silk  threads  are 
elastic.  They  give,  then  spring  back 
into  shape. 

But  when  elasticity  is  lost — then 
the  stockings  wrinkle  and  bag  where 
they  should  fit  most  snugly!  Ceams

are  apt  to  ride  around  and  if  you 
fasten  garters  more  tightly  to  try  to 
keep  them  in  place— then  the  lifeless 
threads  break.  Another  run  starts! 

Don't  take  chances  that  may  ruin 
stockings!  Lux  is  especially  made  to 
preserve  the  elasticity  that  makes 
stockings  keep  their  flattering^,  and 
makes  even  sheer  ones  wear. 


Jimmy  Dunn's  Face 
Reveals  His  Secret 

(Continued  from  page  25) 

way  of  thinking,  the  future  doesn't  take  care 
of  the  present,  and  tomorrow  is  something 
else  again.  That  is  why  he  will  take  a  long 
chance  for  a  big  thing. 

He  is  really  a  tolerant,  understanding 
young  man  beneath  the  surface.  Aroused, 
he  is  apt  to  be  very  quarrelsome.  And  when 
thoroughly  angry  he  has  the  strength  of 
three  men.  He  also  hasn't  the  best  of  self- 
control  on  occasion.  His  lips  bear  witness 
to  that.  But,  if  possible,  he  prefers  to  ignore 
unpleasant  things. 

According  to  the  shape  of  his  eyes,  he  is 
fond  of  "kidding."  What  a  plague  he  must 
have  been  to  the  little  girls  of  his  school 
days!  He  is  the  type  that  gets  a  big  "bang" 
out  of  shocking  people.  Not  malicious,  he 
thoroughly  enjoys  telling  tall  tales  to  watch 
the  results.  It  is  because  he  craves  change 
and  excitement. 

He  possesses  a  short  nose,  denoting  in- 
quisitiveness  and  excitability.  And  how  he 
loves  children,  dogs  and  cats  and  all  pets! 
He  might  push  them  around  and  bully  them 
slightly  when  you  are  looking,  but  without 
an  audience  he  has  a  great  time.  He  is  so 
boyish  himself,  he's  a  bit  ashamed  of  being 
too  "softy." 

Hard  to  Fool  Him  Twice 

HE  has  real  native  cleverness,  not  the 
schooled  variety.  It  comes,  instead, 
from  experience  in  life.  Beneath  that  charm- 
ing Irish  exterior  there  is  a  sober,  practical 
mind.  Bitten  once,  he  is  never  bitten  again. 
He  doesn't  forget  hurts  easily.  Anything 
that  seriously  affects  his  life  is  very  vital  to 
him.  That  is  more  of  the  James  Dunn  be- 
neath the  surface. 

Religion  with  him  is  not  necessarily  dem- 
onstrative, but  he  has  a  real  respect  for 
tradition  and  the  deep-rooted  conventions. 
So  natural  are  these  feelings  with  him  that 
he  probably  doesn't  know  they  exist.  His 
ears  confirm  this  type  of  mind.  He  is  not 
the  sort  to  go  in  for  "odd  ideas."  He  will 
stick  by  the  conventional  code.  He  has 
much  originality,  but  it  is  all  confined  to 
mannerisms,  gestures,  mode  of  speech  and 
whimsies.  His  inner  nature  is  based  on  a 
solid,  clean  foundation. 

But  don't  think  from  this  that  he  is  prud- 
ish. Rather,  let  us  say  that  he  tends  more 
to  the  risque.  But  there  is  nothing  foreign 
or  perverted  about  his  sense  of  humor.  It's 
straight  from  the  shoulder.  Rather  than 
naughty,  he  is  what  is  known  as  "downright 
mischievous." 

Indeed,  this  rising  young  star  enjoys  his 
prankish  moods — and  with  those  who  don't 
understand  him  he  is  apt  to  be  misjudged. 
Bubbling  over  with  animal  spirits  he  takes 
keen  delight  in  carrying  out  a  joke  on  some- 
one— though  never  in  a  mean,  malicious  way. 
His  humor  can  be  labeled  under  the  head 
of  "good,  clean  fun." 

James  Dunn  has  many  possibilities.  All 
of  his  facial  features  indicate  his  care  for  a 
good  performance  and  a  love  for  his  public. 
He  also  knows  the  value  of  hard  work.  Just 
like  anybody  else,  he  might  prefer  to  let 
things  slide  by — he  really  would,  you  know 
— but  he  has  been  schooled  by  experience 
and  he  is  far  too  shrewd  in  his  gamin-like 
way  to  let  his  chances  go  by.  He  knows  that 
only  merit  lasts.  Therefore  he  would  gladly 
give  a  dollar's  worth  of  performance  for  every 
fifty  cents  paid,  because  it's  his  best  invest- 
ment. 

But  he  hasn't  begun  to  make  the  most  of 
himself.  Frankly  speaking,  he  has  had 
enough  quiet  communion  with  his  inner 
thoughts  to  realize  his  possibilities.  He  is 
a  young  man  in  the  making — mischievous, 
fun-loving,  serious — is  Mrs.  Dunn's  bad 
boy,  Jimmy.

James  Dunn — Profile  View 

Profile.  Mixed  type.  Thinks  a  good 
deal  faster  than  he  speaks.  His 
thoughts  generally  are  far  past  his 
speech,  therefore  he  never  fully  ex- 
plains what  he  is  really  thinking. 

Forehead.  Strongly  perceptive. 
Learns   by    watching.     Never   forgets 
the  smallest  injury,  but  doesn't  let  you 
know  visibly. 

Brows.    Resolute. 

Nose.  Good  reasoning  ability.  Very 
careful  about  things  when  they  affect 
his  life.    Thoughtful  when  alone. 

Back  of  Head.  Hasn't  much  faith  in 
promises.  Doesn  t  expect  people  to 
live  up  to  their  highest  principles. 
Considers  them  pretty  back-sliding 
when  it  comes  to  helping.  Wants 
results  quickly — here  and  now.  To- 
morrow will  take  care  of  itself. 

Front  -ear  to  nose.  Has  an  intense 
interest  in  almost  everything  and 
anything.  Learns  that  way.  Has  very 
good  judgment  because  he  is  capable 
of  such  good  observation. 

Jaw.  Aggressive.  Impulsive.  Lov- 
ing. Not  very  animal.  Perverse  in 
temperament.  Likes  change  and  ac- 
tion. 

Entire  lower  profile.  Is  strongly  re- 
ligious by  nature  but  not  necessarily  a 
demonstrative  churchgoer.  Hates  to 
admit  his  real  feelings,  anyhow,  and 
would  rather  tell  you  an  entirely 
different  story  from  what  he  knows  to 
be  the  truth.  Has  an  intense  love  of 
life  and  people.

To  wash  dirty 


Nobody!  Why

KLEENEX 

disposable  tissues 
INSTEAD! 

New  handkerchief  tissue  actu- 
ally costs  less  than  laundering 

CAN  you  imagine  any  more  unpleasant 
task  than  washing  dirty  handkerchiefs? 
No— and  there  isn't  any. 

Why  do  it?  Lots  of  other  women  freed 
themselves  from  this  disagreeable  job,  the 
instant  they  heard  ot  Kleenex. 

Kleenex  is  a  soft,  gentle  tissue  the  size  of 
a  handkerchief.  Its  cost  is  very  little.  In  fact, 
you  can  use  a  number  of  individual  Kleenex 
tissues  for  less  than  it  costs  to  have  one  hand- 
kerchief laundered  commercially!  Thus, 
Kleenex  is  actually  an  economy. 

Much  more  healthful 

If  a  soiled  handkerchief  is  unpleasant  to 
wash,  think  how  dangerous  it  is  to  use! 
Soiled,  germ-laden . . . any  doctor  would  tell 
you  to  keep  it  from  your  face. 

Nor  should  a  dirtyhandkerchiefbestowed 
away  in  clothing  or  laundrybags.lt  is  fit  only 
to  be  destroyed... and  that  is  just  what  hap- 
pens, when  you  use  Kleenex.  You  use  a  tis- 
sue once,  then  destroy.  Germs  are  destroyed. 
Each  time.you  selecta  fresh, clean,sal'e  tissue. 

For  removing  face  creams 

Use  Kleenex  for  removing  face  creams,  as 
authorities  advise.  Its  great  absorbency 
assures  thorough  cleansing  of  the  pores. 

Mothers  find  Kleenex  useful  in  the  nursery. 
Motorists  like  to  keep  a  package  in  the  car. 

Kleenex  comes  in  many  lovely  tints  as  well 
as  white,  in  Cellophane-wrapped  packages  to 
keep  tissues  absolutely  fresh  and  clean.  The 
package  permits  easy  removal  of  tissues  with 
one  hand.  At  all  drug,  dry  goods  and  depart- 
ment stores.

THE    BATHWAY    TO    A 
SOFT,   SMOOTH    SKIN 


The  Life  Story  of  a 

Dangerous  Man 

(Continued  from  page  52) 

York,  where  all  good  actors  go  when  they 
die  (if  not  always  when  they  live),  looked 
the  town  over,  entered  a  dramatic  academy 
and  began  to  be  a  Hamlet.  But  before  he 
could  put  on  greasepaint  professional^', 
America  entered  the  War. 

Then  Romance  Came  Along 

HE  enlisted,  with  the  thought  that  to 
get  Over  There  he  would  at  last  travel 
on  the  sea.  But  just  before  sailing  he  met  a 
girl  who,  he  knew,  was  The  Girl.  He  had 
been  "in  love"  once  or  twice  before,  for  a 
day  or  so1 — just  often  enough  to  recognize 
the  symptoms  and  to  know  that,  this  time, 
the  fever  was  chronic.  He  said  simply, 
"When  I  come  back — "They  both  knew 
that  it  was  "//  I  come  back — "and  parted. 

Warren  and  his  conipany  (an  engineering 
outfit,  by  the  way)  were  moving  through 
France  in  the  direction  of  the  Front  when, 
one  morning,  they  were  startled  by  cries  of 
"L'Armistice!"  Warren  was  young  enough 
then  to  be  disappointed.  He  wanted  to 
see  some  action.  Now,  he  says,  he  under- 
stands why  his  grandfather  left  Germany 
because  of  the  compulsory  military  training. 

When  he  came  back,  She  was  waiting  for 
him.  There  had  been  no  "Mademoiselle 
from  Armentieres"  for  him.  They  were 
married.  That  was  nine  years  ago.  The 
Dangerous  Man  is  still  married  to  the  same 
wife  and  still  in  love  with  her.  He  likes  to 
talk  about  her.  He  says  she  should  have 
been  an  actress,  that  she  should  be  a  screen 
actress,  that  she  has  what  it  takes.  They 
have  no  children  and  do  not  seem  to  feel  a 
vacancy  in  their  lives. 

After  they  were  married,  they  lived  about 
in  apartments  in  New  York.  They  bought 
some  furniture,  but  never  a  home.  Warren 
began  to  be  an  actor  by  touring  in  a  road 
company  of  "I  Love  You."  He  played  the 
part  originally  done  by  Richard  Dix. 
Shortly  thereafter  came  the  chance  to  play 
in  Rachel  Crothers'  "Expressing  Willie" 
and  Warren  found  that  he  had  succeeded 
in  expressing  himself  to  the  hearty  applause 
of  Broadway  and  the  critics. 

His  First  "Discoverer" 

IT  was  Alexander  Woollcott  who  first 
made  the  Barrymore  comparison.  War- 
ren was  then  playing  in  "The  Blue  Peter" 
and  Woollcott  wrote,  "He  has  a  Barrymore 
accent  in  his  speech  and  a  Barrymore  tone 
to  his  voice  and  he  looks  the  very  image  of 
the  young  John  Drew  who  played  Petruchio." 

Warren's  Dad  read  the  criticism  and  was 
massively  impressed.  He  wired  his  only  son 
that  he  had  better  give  up  all  thoughts  of 
engineering  and  newspaper  publishing  and 
stay  in  the  theatre  along  with  the  Drews 
and  the  Barrymores.  Warren  had  no  in- 
tention of  leaving  the  theatre,  whether  he 
stayed  along  with  the  Barrymores  or  be- 
came a  fifth  Marx  Brother. 

He  stayed  and  he  went  on  to  such  suc- 
cesses as  "Twelve  Miles  Out,"  "Let  Us  Be 
Gay"  and  was  the  hero  of  George  Abbott's 
"Those  We  Love."  He  didn't — alas  for  hot 
copy — become  involved  in  any  scandals. 
He  acquired  only  one  "mistress"  and  she 
was  a  schooner.  He  still  keeps  her  and  one 
of  these  days  he's  going  to  go  places — on  all 
seven  Seas. 

He  began  to  make  some  talkie  tests,  just 
to  see  what  might  happen.  He  had  been 
the  hero  in  one  of  Pearl  White's  serials  in 
silents.  He  took  test  after  test,  for  company 
after  company,  beginning  with  the  biggest 
and  most  important  and  gradually  descend- 
ing the  scale.  He  could  have  made  his 
living  making  tests,  he  told  me.  Nothing 
ever  happened.    No  one  reacted.    He  finally

What  He  Wants  from  Movies 

Hints  one  thing  out  of  it  .ill  and  one 
thing  only — money.     He  doesn't   E 

r  his  name  in  electric

of  his  fan  mail  and  takes  care  of  it  for  him.

tributes  give  him  a  sense  of  the  immensity 

of  the  thing.     He   feels   lordly.     As    King 

■   must  feel  when  some  distant  H.indu 

es  him  hoi 

He  hates  possessions.   They  tie  you  down, 

and    he   is  a   vagabond   at    heart. 

js  of  any  kind  strangle  him.  He 
doesn't  care  where  he  lives.  Any  spot  on 
>uld  be  all  right  with  him.  He 
can't  understand  people  who  wrangle  heat- 
iout  the  respective  merits  of  life  in 
Hollywood  and  New  York.  What  does  it 
matter  where  you  live? 

He   likes   to   play   tennis,   and   docs.     He 

doesn't  read  very  much.     He  and  his  wife 

go  to  a   lew   movies  in   the  evenings.     He 

lly  admires  Douglas  Fairbanks,  Jr., 

laurice  Chevalier,  Edward 

ibinson   and — yes — John    Barn-more. 

He   likes  to   see   Loretta   Young,    Barbara 

Stanwyck    and    Miriam    Hopkins.      He    is 

appalled  at  the  way  some  screen  stars  look 

off  the  screen,  compared  to  the  way  they 

look  on.     He  was  naive  and  believed  that 

they  were  all  as  good-looking  as  they  filmed. 

It  annoys  him  when  people  tuck  an  "s"  on 

his  name. 

Not  Saying  He  Won't  Change 

HE  is  pretty  well  content  with  life  and 
doesn't  ask  too  much  of  it.  But  if  he 
were  God  for  a  day,  he'd  change  a  few 
things — the  hours  for  movie  actors,  prin- 
cipally. He  would  also,  of  course,  abolish 
the  prohibition  laws.  He  is  slightly  social- 
istic. It  nauseates  him  when  he  sees  one 
family  driven  to  the  edge  of  suicide  to  pay 
their  rent,  and  another  family  living  on 
yachts  and  in  mansions  and  limousines. 

J I i~  grandfather  was  a  Spiritualist.  An 
uncle  once  got  a  message  from  Grandfather. 
Warren  believes  that  there  may  be  such 
things  .  .  . 

lie  doesn't  know  how  great  fame,  if  it 
should  come  to  him,  would  affect  him. 
He  doesn't  collect  press  clippings  about 
himself.  He  doesn't  think  that  he  has 
changed  since  he  came  to  Hollywood,  but 
that  doesn't  mean  that  he  wouldn't,  lie 
thinks  the  sort  of  thing  that  has  happened 
to  <  lark  Gable  must  be  a  dreadful  thing  to 
stand  up  under  with  your  head  steady  and 
your  feet  on  the  ground. 

He  laughs  about  being  railed  "danger- 
ous. I  [e  says  that  all  men  are  dangerous — 
at  times.  And  tame  tome  ats  al  other  times. 
It  all  depends  upon  how  they  are  fed.  And 
he  doesn't  mean  with  food  alone. 

He  is  six  feet  tall.  He  has  brilliant, 
piercing  blue  eyes — the  eyes  of  a  man  of  the 
sea,  you  might  say.  His  hair  is  thinning  a 
bit.  He  has  a  sophisticated,  thin-lipped 
mouth,  lie  looks  perpetually  amused  and  a 
little  bit  tired  of  it  all. 

Some  day,  when  he  has  that  money,  he 
will  take  his  mistress,  the  schooner,  and  sail 
the  Seven  Seas  he  /.ill  -ail  troni  port  to 
port,  from  one  horizon  to  another.  This  is 
the  chief  urge  of  that  Dangerous  .Man, 
Warren  William.

Marlene  Dietrich  will  have 

only  one  great  love,  her 

Handwriting  shows 

(Continued  from  page  ji) 
gance,  shown  by  the  letter  "a"  in  her  first 
name  (which  is  open  at  the  top)  and  the 
wide  spaces  between  her  words.  If  you  want 
to  get  something  from  her,  let  her  feel  sorry 
for  you  first,  and  she  will  be  apt  to  work 
with  all  her  might  to  help  you  with  your 
problems. 

But  be  careful  not  to  give  her  a  "sob- 
story"  without  any  truth  in  it,  or  else  have 
a  shell-proof  dugout  near  at  hand  when  the 
fireworks  start.  She  may  be  fooled  once,  but 
never  twice,  and  it  is  a  dangerous  proposi- 
tion to  try  to  impose  on  her  kindness.  For 
she  is  no  milk-and-water  miss,  who  will  say 
nothing  and  turn  the  other  cheek.  Look  at 
the  long  ending  strokes  of  her  words  and 
the  downward  ending  stroke  of  the  capital 
"M"  in  "Marlene,"  and  then  think  twice 
before  incurring  her  wrath. 

The  unevenness  of  her  letters  and  the 
heavy  pressure  with  which  she  writes  show 
that  she  can  be  temperamental,  as  well  as 
kind.  Her  nature  is  not  of  the  regulation 
type.  It  is  a  fortunate  thing  for  her  that 
she  is  able  to  let  out  some  of  these  over- 
emotional  feelings — rather  than  to  keep 
them  bottled  up  until  an  inevitable  explo- 
sion might  wreck  her  life.  In  my  work,  I 
find  too  many  inhibitions  and  repressions 
caused  by  self-consciousness  and  fear  of  what 
people  may  think.  I  do  not  find  this  in 
Marlene  Dietrich's  character,  although  there 
is  some  reserve  at  times,  which  makes  her 
inscrutable  and  hard  to  understand.  This 
will  give  her  charm — especially  for  the  male 
sex. 

Why  She  Wants  Success 

NOTICE  the  plain  capitals  that  she  uses 
— so  free  from  over-ornamentation  and 
vulgarity.  This  is  a  proof  that  she  comes 
naturally  by  the  poise  and  self-possession 
that  we  see  in  her  work  in  the  movies,  in 
which  she  has  had  such  success.  This  shows 
her  ability  to  think  clearly  and  plan  ahead 
so  that  she  can  keep  her  balance  even  when 
she  has  work  to  do.  She  has  many  of  the 
constructive,  as  well  as  the  artistic  qualities, 
in  her  nature  and  can  put  aside  her  emo- 
tions and  temperamental  qualities  when  sin- 
cerely interested  in  anything.  There  is  a 
driving  force  that  makes  her  almost  ruthless 
in  her  willingness  to  give  up  practically  any- 
thing in  order  to  satisfy  her  ambitions. 

Yet  this  love  of  success  does  not  spring 
purely  from  a  fondness  for  material  rewards, 
such  as  money  and  fame — although  there  is 
a  material  side  to  her  complex  nature.  It 
does  not  even  arise  from  a  desire  to  get  her 
own  way,  in  spite  of  the  fact  that  she  is 
stubborn  and  dislikes  interference  with  her 
plans.  It  comes  more  from  an  urge  for 
achievement  that  will  satisfy  her  own  sense 
of  what  is  right. 

In  choosing  the  director  of  her  pictures, 
her  studio  should  always  select  someone  she 
can  respect  and  admire  for  his  cleverness  and 
power.  LInder  such  direction  she  should  be 
easily  managed  and  do  excellent  work.  For, 
with  her  instinctive  feeling  for  what  is  right 
and  fine,  whether  she  has  had  any  special 
cultural  training  or  not,  she  will  dislike  and 
despise  mediocrity  and  pretension  and  will 
probably  sulk  and  do  poor  work  under  a 
person  of  inferior  mentality. 

While  she  can  work  hard  when  necessary, 
she  will  also  want  comfort  and  luxury  and 
enjoy  being  lazy,  "even  as  you  and  I."  Just 
as  a  beautiful  tigress  can  stretch  out  in  the 
sun  and  relax  and  purr  like  a  good-natured 
house  cat,  Marlene  will  enjoy  being  waited 
on  and  petted  and  made  much  of.  This 
quality,  while  it  may  be  irritating  to  those 
who  want  her  to  do  something,  is  in  reality 


a  very  go<.wl  thing  for  her.  both  ph) 
and   mentally.     I

However,   like   most   of  the  constructive 

she  will  have  only  om  ;>.  and

impletely.    And  Heaven  help  hi

I   have  spoken.    She  might  have  doz<

never  heal. 

Before  putting  this  character  study 
take  one  i  I   the  reproduction  of 

Marlene  Dietrich's  handwriting  and  see  if 
llize  this  woman  from  what 
I  have  told  you  of  her  character.    Just   a 
mixture  of  a  very  human  wife  and  mother — 
like  yourself  or  Mrs.  Jones,  your  next-door 
neighbor — but  with  something  that  drives 
to  accomplishment  in  spite  of  ob- 
tppointments. 
While   she    has   faults   and    is   tempera- 
mental, she  has  endurance  and  determina- 
tion and  can  be  urged  on  to  even  greater 
effort  by  encouragement.    She  may  not  al- 
be  wise  in  her  judgment — perhaps  be- 
of  her  impatiem  ■  ike  of  petti- 

ness of  any  kind — but  she  is  sincere,  and 
capable  of  great  things  when  she  finds  the 
right  outlet  for  her  energies.  With  the  right 
pictures,  she  will  go  on  to  ever  greater 
triumphs  in  her  profession. 


Shampooing 


this  way  .  .  .  gives  your  hair 

New  Beauty 

Results  are  amazing!   Your  hair  looks  utterly  different  from  hair 
ivashed  with  ordinary  soap.  Costs  only  a  few  cents  to  use. 


FlORTUNATELY,  beautiful  hair  isno 
longer  a  matter  of  luck. 
Its  life,  its  lustre  ...  its  alluring 
loveliness  .  .  .  depend,  almost  entirely,  up- 
on the  way  you  shampoo  it. 

A  filmy  coating  of  dust  and  dirt  is  con- 
stantly forming  on  the  hair.  If  allowed  to 
remain,  it  hides  the  life  and  lustre  and  the 
hair  then  becomes  dull  and  unattractive. 

Onlv  thorough  shampooing  will  .  .  .  re- 
move this  DINGY  COATING  and  1  i  the 
kle  and  rich,  natural  COLOR  TONES 
of  the  hair  show. 

While  your  hair  must  have  frequent 
and  regular  washing  to  keep  this  coat- 
ing removed,  the  careless  practice  of  rub- 
bing a  cake  of  soap  over  your  hair  .  .  . 
(something  hairdressers  NEVER  DO)  .  . . 
invariably  leaves  small  particles  of  undis- 
solved soap  on  the  hair,  which  dulls  and 
mars  its  beauty. 

Besides — the  hair  cannot 
stand  the  harsh  effect  of  free 
alkali,  common  in  ordinary 
soaps.  The  free  alkali  soon 
dries  the  scalp,  makes  the  hair 
brittle  and  ruins  it. 

That  is  why  thousands  of 
women,  everywhere,  who 
\  alue  beautiful  hair  .  .  .  use 
Mulsified  Cocoanut  Oil 
Shampoo. 

This  clear,  pure  and  entirely 

greascless   product   no 
cleanses  the  hair  thoroughly, 


but  is  so  mild  and  so  pure  that  it  cannot 
possibly  injure.  It  does  not  dry  the  scalp, 
or  make  the  hair  brittle,  no  matter  how 
often  you  use  it. 

Two  or  three  tcaspoonfuls  of  Mulsified 
are  sufficient  for  a  quick  and  truly  pro- 
fessional shampoo  at  home — and  it  (  OS!  S 
ONLY  A  FEW  CENTS  TO  USE.  It 
makes  an  abundance  of  .  .  .  soft,  rich, 
creamy  lather  .  .  .  with  cither  hard  or  sofl 
water,  which  cleanses  thoroughly  and 
rinses  out  easily,  removing  with  it  every 
particle  of  dust,  dirt  and  dandruff.

"Another     Dietrich"?       That's     the     title 
they've  hung  on    newcomer  Sari  Maritza. 
But  did   you   ever  see  Marlene  in  a  bath- 
ing suit  and  playful.' 


MULSIFIED 


COCOANUT  OIL 
SHAMPOO 


Dietrich  Speaks  Out  for  Herself 


Lady  of  Many  Moods,  was  in  a  brand-new 
mood.  If  such  a  Yankee  word  may  be  ap- 
plied to  such  an  aloof  foreign  charmer,  she 
was  peppy. 

In  short,  she  looked  as  if  she  had  risen 
early,  put  her  blonde  head  out  of  her 
Beverly  Hills  window,  inhaled  deeply  of  the 
Spring  morning,  sung  a  guttural  ditty  or 
two  in  her  bath,  and  arrayed  herself  in  her 
gayest  Spring  raiment  before  coming  to  the 
studio  to  keep  her  appointment. 

"You  look  like  Spring  flowers,  or  some- 
thing," I  remarked,  because  she  really  did. 

"I  feel  goot,"  smiled  Marlene,  as  she  held 
open  the  screen  door  of  her  dressing-room. 

Like  other  interviewers,  I  have  been 
warned  that  certain  subjects  are  tabu  with 
Dietrich — such  subjects  as  Hollywood's 
gossip  about  her,  and  the  "influence"  of 
Director  Josef  von  Sternberg  on  her  career. 
At  first,  I  remembered  the  warning.  We 
skipped  over  the  neutral  subjects  of  current 
pictures — Marlene's  and  other  stars';  of  the 
great  news  value  connected  with  the  release 
of  "Shanghai  Express";  of  the  unusually 
enthusiastic  reception  accorded  "Dishon- 
ored" by  London  audiences.  Marlene,  it 
developed,  had  seen  a  number  of  movies 
lately.  She  thought  the  new  releases  were 
surprisingly  "goot,"  taken  as  a  whole.  From 
there  we  drifted  to  the  influences  that  go  to 
make  up  a  "goot"  picture — the  director,  the 
story,  the  acting,  the  camera  work,  the  cut- 
ting, and  so  on. 

Marlene  Laughs  at  This  Rumor 

ND  then,  suddenly,  I  found  myself  ask- 
ing a  bombshell  question — a  question 


A' 


{Continued  from  page  zp) 

that  surprised  me — a  question  that  could 
have  been  dared  only  because  of  Marlene's 
consistent  good  humor.  "What  do  you 
think  of  all  this  Hollywood  talk  of  Mr.  von 
Sternberg's  influence  in  your  own  pictures — 
the  talk  that  he  feels  and  speaks  and  thinks 
for  you,  as  the  Hollywood  gossips  are  so 
determined  to  make  out?" 

For  a  moment,  you  could  have  heard  a 
pin  drop — at  least,  I  could!  But  when  I 
dared  to  look  at  her  again,  her  smile  had 
not  faded — it  had  widened  into  a  very 
humorous  sort  of  old-fashioned  grin!  She 
nodded  her  head  a  couple  of  times,  as  if 
such  talk  were  familiar  to  her. 

"Thot's  funny,  very  funny,"  she  said. 
"Just  last  evening  Mr.  von  Sternberg  and 
I  were  reading  a  magazine  with  an  article 
that  told  of  how  I  was  a  Trilby  to  my  direc- 
tor's Svengali." 

Marlene  gave  a  short  laugh — probably  in 
demonstration  of  how  she  and  her  director 
had  laughed  over  the  article. 

"I  am  sure  the  writer  would  have  been 
disappointed  to  see  how  we  laughed,"  she 
continued.  "  I  think  that  maybe  he  thought 
such  a  story  would  make  Mr.  von  Sternberg 
very  angry.  But  that  is  because  most 
people  do  not  understand  Mr.  von  Stern- 
berg. They  believe  he  has  no  sense  of 
humor.  If  they  could  only  have  seen  him 
laugh  at  that  story!  He  said:  '  It  is  too  bad 
it  is  not  true.  Think  of  all  the  fun  I  could 
have,  hypnotizing  you!' 

"As  for  me — I  am  truly  sorry  I  do  not 
know  such  a  person  as  my  director  is  sup- 
posed to  be.  Think  how  interesting  it  would 
be  to  know  a  man  who  could  so  completely 


control  another  person's  destiny!  How  nice 
it  would  be  to  have  such  a  man  as  a  friend. 
One  would   never  weary  for  entertainment. 

Her  Opinion  of  Von  Sternberg 

IS  it  not  silly  that  writers  say  Mr.  von 
Sternberg  has  such  a  weird,  uncanny 
effect  on  me?  It  is  very  true  that  he  is  a 
tremendous  influence  in  the  direction  of  his 
pictures — but  surely  the  critics  and  writers 
must  have  noticed  this  same  influence  in 
the  performance  of  other  players.  It  is  not 
only  Dietrich  who  responds  to  his  direction 
so  completely — every  actor  who  has  worked 
with  him  will  tell  you  that  he  goes  through 
a  new  directorial  experience  when  he  works 
in  a  von  Sternberg  production. 

"Notice  the  difference  in  other  players 
besides  myself  when  they  are  working  in 
one  of  his  pictures  as  compared  to  their 
work  with  other  directors.  Yet  they  (the 
writers)  do  not  say  Mr.  von  Sternberg  hyp- 
notizes them.  I  believe  he  brings  every 
actor  he  directs  to  his  heights!"  (Several 
months  ago  Marlene  had  told  me  that  if  von 
Sternberg  ever  made  a  picture  with  Joan 
Crawford,  the  public  would  be  surprised  at 
the  power  and  sweep  of   her  personality.) 

"But,"  she  added  with  a  little  shrug, 
dismissing  the  entire  subject,  "I  do  not  pay 
much  attention  to  such  stories  any  more. 
At  first — yes.  They  used  to  upset  me.  But 
now  I  do  not  even  bother  to  deny  most  of 
them.    Only  one  really  upset  me " 

She  had  risen  now  and  was  moving  about 
her  dressing-room.  She  found  a  cigarette 
tray  for  me  and  placed  it  at  my  elbow. 
She  did   it   almost   subconsciously — a   hint 


There's  more  Chicle  in  it 

that's  what  makes  it  better 

It's  the  amount  and  the  quality  of  the  CHICLE  used  that 
makes  such  a  big  difference  in  chewing  gums — Beech-Nut 
Gum  contains  a  larger  proportion  of  the  world's  finest 
chicle  than  any  other  gum  on  the  market.  That  explains 
its  greater  chewing  quality  and  smoothness.  That's  why 
Beech-Nut  Gum  stays  fresh  and  smooth-flavored  far  longer 
than  any  ordinary  gum — that's  what  makes  all  the  differ- 
ence between  a  good  gum  and  the  finest  gum  you  can  buy.

times  difficult.    Just  this  morning  I 

ike  a  walk  with  her."  (She  quickly 
corrected  herself  to  "take  a  walk".) 
quickly  put  on  an  old  coat  and  wit: 
hat  or  any  make-up,  I  started  out  with 
Maria  for  a  walk  toward  the  hills.  Hut  we 
had  not  reached  the  sidewalk  when  some 
who  must  have  been  waiting  nearby 
'  up  with  us  and  asked  il  I  were  not 
Marlene  Dietrich.  We  walked  on  a  little- 
farther  and  they  followed  us.  I  tried  to  be 
nice;  I  thought  if  I  smiled  and  talked  to 
them  a  little  while  they  would  go  away — 
(.lit  soon  I  found  they  intended  to  walk 
with  us.    So  1   brought   Maria  home. 

"Soon  I  am  taking  her  back  to  Germany 
to  be  entered  in  school.  I  want  her  to  be 
brought  up  in  the  schools  of  my  country. 
are  still  a  great  deal  more  conservative 
over  there.  Children  do  not  learn  the  things 
of  the  grown-up  world  so  quickly.  Here — I 
am  a  little  frightened. 

"The  other  day  Maria  had  a  birthday. 
I  had  invited  several  of  her  little  neighbor- 
hood playmates,  nice  children  ol  nice  fami- 
lies, to  share  her  birthday  cake.  There  were 
some  candles  on  the  cake  and  the  children 
suggested  that  Maria  try  to  blow  them  out. 
In  Germany  we  do  not  know  this  but  she 
seemed  eager  to  try.  She  blew  them  all  out 
but  two — and  one  little  child,  even  younger 
than  Maria,  spoke  up  and  said:  ' Th.it 
means  you  will  hie  married  and  db 
twice!'  My  poor  baby — she  looked  at  me, 
not  knowing  what  the  other  child  meant. 

What  Hurts  Marlene  Most 
ATER  on,  the   children    suggested    to 


u 


Maria  that  they  play  Marriage  and 
Divorce.  You  do  not  know  how  this 
frightened  me — like  something  sticking  in 
my  heart.  I  forbade  them  to  play  such  a 
game — and  Maria  was  cross  with  me.  She 
wanted  to  play  what  the  American  children 
play.  That  is  why  I  say  I  am  anxious  to 
take  her  back  to  Germany  for  her  schooling. 
I  very  much  want  to  keep  her  a  little  girl 
for  those  happy  years  allotted  to  her.  .  .  . 

"I  do  not  know  how  soon  we  will  be  able 
to  make  the  trip.  I  hope  after  my  nexl 
picture — but  perhaps  the  time  will  be  ex- 
tended for  two  productions. 

"There  is  another  story  that  surprised 
me  when  I  read  it  in  print — the  story  that 
I  am  returning  to  Germany  immediately  to 
make  a  German  version  of  'Cleopatra.' 
This  is  most  interesting— I  did  not  know  it 
until  I  read  the  |  iapei .

about  her  house,  waiting  to  pounce  upon 
her  for  autographs  when  she  enters  or  leaves 
her  residence. 


THE  day  Bebe  Daniels  sang  over  the 
radio  from  New  York,  her  most  inter- 
ested and  enthusiastic  listener  was  none 
other  than  Barbara  Bebe  Lyon,  just  turned 
six  months  old. 

Hilda,  Bebe's  devoted  maid  and  little 
Barbara's  nurse,  held  the  baby  close  to  the 
radio  and  when  her  mother's  voice  came 
through,  the  little  tot  almost  flew  out  of 
her  arms  with  excitement.  "She  kept  look- 
ing around,"  relates  Hilda  proudly.  "She 
couldn't  understand  how  she  could  hear 
that  familiar  voice  and  not  be  able  to  see 
her  mother." 


HELEN  Twelvetrees  has  never  quite  got 
over  being  a  movie  fan  at  heart.  The 
other  day  we  bumped  into  Helen  in  the 
publicity  department  of  her  studio,  looking 
over  some  new  stills.  No,  they  were  not 
her  own.  The  little  Twelvetrees  was  ardently 
admiring  the  new  poses  of  Constance 
Bennett. 


/^■OLLEEN  Moore  and  Al  Scott  finally 
' — /  stepped  off  after  an  engagement  lasting 
a  couple  of  years.  They  were  married  at 
Fort  Pierce,  Florida,  and  a  couple  of  days 
after  the  ceremony  Colleen  and  her  new 
husband  took  the  train  for  California  where 
Colleen  opened  in  her  new  stage  show.  San 
Francisco  is  the  town  and,  of  course,  Colleen 
will  show  up  in  Los  Angeles  so  all  her  movie 
friends  can  see  her. 

This  is  Colleen's  second  marriage.    Ditto 
for  .Mr.  Scott. 


FEBRUARY  15th  must  have  been  a 
great  day  for  marriages — especially  for 
former  film  favorites.  Tom  Mix  was  married 
in  Mexico  to  Mabel  Hubbell  Ward,  aerialist 
of  the  Sells-Floto  Circus,  on  the  same  day 
Colleen  became  Mrs.  Al  Scott. 


IT  would  be  a  poor  month,  indeed,  that 
didn't  have  at  least  one  or  two  good 
artistic  temperament  complaints. 

Anna  May  Wong  kept  up  China's  war 
record  by  walking  out  of  the  cast  of  RKO's 
"Roar  of  the  Dragon."  By  some  compli- 
cation in  the  billing  Gwili  Andre's  name 
slipped  in  above  Anna's  in  the  cast  of  the 
picture,  when  a  previous  agreement  with 
Miss  Wong  had  stipulated  she  was  to  re- 
ceive first  billing. 

Over  at  Paramount,  Charlie  Bickford  is 
showing  signs  of  his  previous  M-G-M  tem- 
perament by  setting  off  a  few  red-headed 
sparks  about  his  role  opposite  Tallulah 
Bankhead  in  "Thunder  Below."  Charlie 
just  doesn't  like  the  part. 


FRANK  Borzage,  Fox  director,  is  nursing 
one  pet  ambition  at  the  present  moment. 
He  wants  to  re-make  "Humoresque"  for 
the  talking  camera.  As  a  silent  picture, 
"Humoresque"  was  one  of  the  classics  of 
its  day.  Now,  with  the  added  advantage  of 
sound,  the  Fannie  Hurst  novel  would  be 
delightful. 

A  child  actor  named  Sidney  Miller,  who 
recently  completed  "Symphony  of  Six  Mil- 
lion," starring  Ricardo  Cortez,  at  RKO,  is 
being  seriously  considered  for  the  role  of  the 
child  violinist.  The  twelve-year-old  young- 
ster is  a  natural  musician  and  a  natural 
actor.

B.  listened  with  a  willing  car.  After  all,  the 
picture  wasn  t  coi  ipleted,  and  Rod  without 
an  arm  or  a  leg  wouldn't  be  much  use. 

Mr.  O'Brien  was  called  into  the  scene.  A 
tin  back,  as  shark-like  as  possible,  was 
strained  on  him,  anil  he  swam  face  down- 
ward in  water.  Mr.  I. a  Rocque  made  all  the 
necessary  faces.  Fans  "o-ohed"  and  "a- 
ahed"  when  they  saw  it.  Everyone  was  sat- 
isfied except  the  real  shark  which,  was  sort 
of  hungry. 

George  got  S25  for  the  day's  work.  So 
began  another  mo\  ie  1  areer, 

THhY  do  say,  speaking  of  the  fans,  that 
Connie  Bennett  1  rathei  upsel  overthe 
nasty  story  a  hinterland  newspaper  printed 
about  her.  As  she  was  traveling  Westward, 
recently,  the  train  marie  a  brief  stop  at  a 
station.     (  onnie  jumped  from  the  car  and 

Bl  irted  a  athon  1 "  1  In-  telegraph  office. 

.1  her  impending  arrh al  on  that  par- 
tii  ular  train  had  journeyed  on  ahead,  and  a 
good  portion  ol  I  he  village  was  on  hand  to 
sec  what  I  lick  Bennel  1  's  oldest  chirk  1. » >l  ei  I 
like.  A  little  bit  dismayed  al  t  he  mob,  Con 
nie  ducked  her  head,  and  ran  all  the  faster. 

A  very  small  youngster,  pushed  by  the 
crowd,  fell,  sprawling,  at  her  feet.  Connie 
stopped,  picked  up  the  child,  and  continued 
her  sprint. 

She  does  feel  hurt,  and  a  little  burnt,  too, 
il  you  must  know,  when  t  he  clipping  service 
forwarded  her  an  item  from  the  local  press. 

"Movie  star  kicks  child  in  face,"  it  read.

tracting  business,  and  many  of  the  buildings

His  First  Movie  Work 

AS  a  child,  Russ  played  in  many  D.  W. 
l\  Griffith,  Mack  Sennett,  and  Mary 
Pickford  pictures,  but  always  as  one  of  the 
mob,  and  the  five-  and  ten-dollar  bills 
garnered  in  this  fashion  were  stored  away 
in  a  bank  account  that  was  to  go  to  his 
musical  training  as  he  grew  older. 

When  he  was  fourteen  years  old,  he  began 
his  study  of  the  violin.  With  fingers  that 
had  been  made  deft  by  the  guitar,  he 
advanced  rapidly.  One  day  his  old  teacher, 
Laveri,  wrote  to  his  parents  and  told  them 
the  ways  of  life  had  been  difficult  in  the 
East  and  that  if  they  would  pay  for  his 
transportation  to  California,  he  would  repay 
them  by  giving  lessons  to  "your  most 
talented  Ruggerio." 

The  idea  was  an  acceptable  one  and  with- 
in a  few  weeks  Laveri  was  back  with  his  old 
pupil.  Three  years  later,  Russ  had  reached 
such  a  degree  of  mastery  on  the  violin  that 
he  gave  a  series  of  concerts  both  in  Los 
Angeles  and  in  San  Francisco.  Music  critics 
hailed  him  as  another  prodigy,  but  as  is 
usually  the  case  with  prodigies,  fate  stepped 
in  and  drove  him  on  another  course. 

The  family  fortune  at  this  time  was  not 
where  it  should  have  been,  and  Russ  was 
compelled  to  accept  a  job  with  an  orchestra 
playing  for  private  dances  around  Holly- 
wood. A  while  later,  he  joined  an  orchestra 
that  played  at  the  Hotel  Mayfair  and, 
because  of  his  deep  baritone  voice,  was 
selected  by  the  leader  to  sing  the  vocal 
choruses. 

Picture  executives  and  directors  were  fre- 
quent visitors,  and  soon  thereafter  Russ 
picked  up  a  lot  of  extra  money  by  playing 
the  violin  on  the  movie  sets.  Pola  Negri 
dropped  into  the  Mayfair  ballroom  one 
night  when  the  young  violinist  was  playing 
and  asked  that  he  report  on  her  lot  the 
following  day.  For  two  years  he  remained 
with  Miss  Negri  and  played  his  violin  for 
the  atmospheric  effect  it  had  on  her  emoting. 

He  Broke  the  News  to  Pola 
NE  day  in  August,  1926,  the  news  was 
brought  on  the  Negri  set  that  Rudolph 
Valentino  had  died  in  New  York.  The 
young  violinist  was  in  the  middle  of 
Dvorak's  "Humoresque"  while  a  heavy 
love  scene  was  in  the  process  of  being 
filmed.  The  messenger  whispered  the  news 
to  him  first,  and  the  shock  at  learning  that 
the  man  who  had  been  his  greatest  screen 
hero  was  dead  caused  him  to  stop  with  a 
suddenness  that  spoiled  the  entire  scene. 

"What  is  the  matter  with  you?"  screamed 
La  Negri.  "Why  must  you  stop  playing 
right  in  the  middle  of  a  scene?" 

"Rudolph  Valentino  is  dead,"  he  replied. 

The  star  fainted  away,  and  Russ  vouches 
for  the  fact  that  it  was  no  act.  For  hours 
and  days  after  she  was  inconsolable. 

The  Cocoanut  Grove  in  the  Ambassador 
Hotel  in  Hollywood,  where  filmdom's  elite 
gather  on  the  slightest  provocation,  offered 
Russ  a  job  with  its  orchestra  and  he 
remained  there  for  a  year.  One  day  while 
he  was  singing  a  love  ballad,  he  was  inter- 
rupted by  Ben  Schulberg,  executive  of  the 
Paramount  studios,  and  offered  the  second 
lead  in  "Wolf  Song"  with  Gary  Cooper  and 
Lupe  Yelez.  Naturally,  he  accepted,  and 
was  billed  under  the  name  of  Russell 
Columbo. 

He  reported  on  the  set  four  days  later  and

playing,  and  this  voice  was  supposed 
coming   over   the   air.      The   sei 
almost  prophetic. 

Because  of  his  vocal  powers,  executives 
considering  Russ  for  leads  in  music  il 
pictures,  but  on  i  on  he  was  turned 

down  because  the  test  showed  him 
too  much  of  a  Latin  type."     At  this  time 
Buddy   Rogers  was  coming   into   his  own 
because  he  represented  the  type  most  popu- 
lar with  the  moviegoers,  and  film  heads  were 
afraid  to  take  a  chano   on  Russ.    Bui 
foreign  types  on  the  risi 
will    it   be  before   the   linger  of   film   fame 
-  in  Russ's  direction? 

Disgusted  with  the  turn  of  events,  Russ 
refused  to  double  for  stars  who  could  not 
d  turned  again  to  orchestra  work,  lie 
played  in  various  Los  Angeles  theatres  ami 
hotels  and  finally  went  back  to  the  Ambas- 
sador Hotel  as  a  featured  member  of  the 
Rhythm  Boys.  Two  months  later,  a  quarrel 
with  the  management  broke  up  the  organi- 
zation, and  Russ  decided  to  put  his  savings 
into  his  own  business.  So  with  the  aid  of  a 
few  friends  he  opened  the  Pyramid  Club 
and,  although  it  never  prospered  to  any 
great  extent,  it  held  its  own  and  enabled 
Russ  to  strike  up  friendships  with  many 
movie  stars.  Among  these  were  Tom  Mix, 
Gloria  Swanson,  Ramon  Novarro,  Joan 
Bennett,  Eric  Von  Stroheim,  Jack  Oakie  and 
Joan  Crawford. 

What  Conrad  Predicted  for  Him 

AND  now  the  number  twelve  again.  On 
the  night  the  club  was  celebrating  its 
first  twelve  months  oi  existence,  a  party 
comprised  of  George  Olsen,  Joan  Crawford, 
June  Collyer  and  Con  Conrad  came  in  and 
was  ushered  to  a  ringside  table. 

In  Russ's  words:  "I  was  thrilled  to  meet 
Con  Conrad,  the  man  whose  songs  were 
familiar  to  me  and  my  orchestra.  And  we 
played  many  ol  his  famous  numbers,  such 
as  'Margie,'  'Barney  Google,'  '.Memory 
Lane,'  'Let's  Do  the  Breakaway,'  and  'Ma, 
He's  Making  Eyes  at  Me.' 

"The  party  remained  until  early  in  the 
morning  and  bel ore  l hey  departed,  Con  lold 
me  he  believed  1  would  make  a  great  success 
in  the  East  with  radio  work,  and  said  he  was 
willing  to  take  me  along  with  him  if  I  could 

go-" 

Two  days  later  Con  Conrad  and  Russ 
Columbo  were  on  The  Chief  bound  foi  New 
York.  Conrad,  in  the  meantime,  had  tried 
to  convince  George  Olsen  that  Columbo 
would    be  a   great    bet    for   his  band,   which 

<  il-in  was  planning  to  take  to  New  York  for 
the  winter.  I'.ut  Olsen  couldn't  see  Russ! 
"They're  tired  of  crooners  look  at  V'allee," 
was  <  llsen's  crypt  ii  way  ol  turning  down  the 
singer. 

"Well,  I'll  take  tins  kid  to  New  York  and, 

mark  my  word,  inside  of  six  i it  hs  he'll  be 

i    ensation.    I'll  ha\ e  him  on  a  big  program

HOW   MILLIONS 


LOSE  FAT 


•  You  know,  as  all  know,  that  in  late  years 
excess  fat  has  been  disappearing  fast.  Look 
about  you.  Note  how  slender  figures,  youth 
and  vigor  have  displaced  abnormal  fat. 

The  reason  lies  largely  in  a  discovery 
made  by  modern  science.  A  great  cause  of 
excess  fat  has  been  found  in  a  weakened 
gland.  Food  which  should  create  fuel  and 
energy  goes  to  piled-up  fat. 

Now  doctors,  the  world  over,  feed  that 
lacking  factor.  Normal  conditions  return. 
Fat  melts  away  and  vim  comes  back.  And 
without  starvation. 

Marmola  prescription  tablets  embody 
this  modern  method.   People  have  used  them 


for  24  years — millions  of  boxes  of  them.  The 
changed  conditions  of  today  are  largely  due 
to  Marmola. 

Quit  wrong  methods  of  reduction,  hard  or 
futile.  Do  what  modern  doctors  do,  and 
what  countless  people  have  done  with 
Marmola.  Take  these  tablets — four  a  day — 
until  weight  comes  down  to  normal  and  vim 
returns  to  par. 

All  druggists  supply  Marmola — Si  a  box. 
A  book  in  each  box  gives  the  formula  and 
explains  the  amazing  results.  Get  slender 
now,  more  youthful,  more  active.  Don't 
wait  longer.    Marmola  is  at  your  call.

to  his  valet  (which  he  never  had)  nor  to  the 
Hollywood  crowd.  So  they  pooh-poohed 
the  composer's  words. 

Even  Ziegfeld  Missed  a  Chance 

ON  the  train  Eastward,  Con  and  Russ 
composed  "You  Call  It  Madness,  But 
I  Call  It  Love,"  which  has  since  become  the 
crooning  baritone's  theme  song  on  the  air. 
The  pair  stepped  off  the  train  at  the  Grand 
Central  Station,  hopped  into  a  taxi  and 
dashed  to  the  office  of  Flo  Ziegfeld. 

In  addition  to  "You  Call  It  Madness — ," 
Conrad  had  two  other  songs  that  he  hoped 
to  place  in  the  new  "Follies,"  which  Ziegfeld 
was  then  casting.  Russ  sang  all  the  three 
and  they  included  "Who  Am  I?"  and 
"Prisoner  of  Love,"  but  Ziegfeld  shook  his 
head  sadly.  "They're  not  hit  tunes,"  he 
gave  as  his  verdict. 

But  the  saddest  blow-  of  all  was  that  he 
hadn't  even  noticed  Russ's  singing.  To  the 
great  maestro  of  the  "Follies,"  Russ  was 
just  another  song-plugger. 

Earl  Carroll's  office  was  the  next  stop  and 
the  languid  Earl,  producer  of  the  "Vanities," 
emptied  his  partially  completed  theatre  of 
its  workmen  and  listened  interestedly  to 
both  the  songs  and  the  singer. 

"To  tell  you  the  truth,"  he  said,  turning 
to  Conrad  after  Russ  had  ended  his  audi- 
tion, "there  are  bigger  things  in  store  for 
this  lad  than  I  can  offer  him  at  present. 
However,  if  you  want  to  accept  a  humble 
offer  of  three  hundred  and  fifty  dollars  per 
week,  he  may  start  rehearsing  at  once." 

Conrad  thanked  the  "Vanities"  producer, 
bundled  both  his  songs  and  his  handsome 
protege  under  his  arms,  and  departed  for  the 
radio  chains.  And  within  twelve  hours, 
super-salesman  Conrad  had  convinced  the 
N&C  officials  that  Russ  Columbo  was  what 
radio  had  been  waiting  for  all  these  years 
and  to  prove  it  was  willing  to  stake  all  on 
the  fan  mail. 

A  Twelve- Day  Wonder 

IF  you  put  Columbo  on  a  coast-to-coast 
hook-up,  within  one  month  the  mail 
will  reach  twelve  hundred  letters  a  day,"  he 
insisted. 

"And  if  he  pulls  twelve  hundred  letters  a 
day,  you  can  rest  assured,"  the  officials 
replied  skeptically,  "that  his  income  will  be 
pretty  near  a  dollar  for  every  fan  letter." 

The  only  open  hour  was  at  II  P.M. — an 
hour  conceded  to  be  a  difficult  one  from 
which  to  draw  substantial  mail.  But  Russ 
took  it.  On  the  twelfth  day,  the  National 
Broadcasting  offices  reported  that  Colum- 
bo's  daily  mail  had  reached  1278  letters. 

To-day  Russ's  routine  is  a  fast  and  furious 
one.  Up  at  nine  for  a  ride  on  his  roan 
through  Central  Park.  Back  to  his  pent- 
house apartment  overlooking  Manhattan. 
A  shower  and  a  rub-down  and  then  a  swift 
drive  through  traffic  to  the  theatre  where  he 
is  appearing.  There  are  four  to  five  shows 
every  day  that  last  until  ten-thirty  in  the 
evening  and  these  are  interspersed  with 
rehearsals  for  the  following  week,  rehearsals 
of  his  commercial  broadcasts  and  the  broad- 
casts themselves,  the  mad  dashes  between 
shows  across  the  East  River  to  make  record- 
ings of  his  songs  on  the  discs,  and  the 
numerous  motion  picture  shorts  and  per- 
sonal appearances. 

At  eleven  each  night  he  leaves  the  theatre 
and  speeds  frantically  in  his  limousine  to  the 
Waldorf-Astoria  on  Park  Avenue  to  conduct 
his  orchestra  while  the  Mayfair  of  Gotham 
dances  after  the  theatre.  At  two-thirty  in 
the  morning  he  is  in  bed  again. 

That's  the  furious  day  of  America's  latest 
Romeo  of  Song.  On  January  14,  he  cele- 
brated his  twenty-fourth  birthday.  Twenty- 
four.  Twice  twelve.  And  twelve  hundred 
dollars  a  day.

CHOOSE  your  ROUGE  SHADES 

this  new  fascinating  way 

forget  all  about 
matching  your 
skin    and  select 
shades  to  match 
your  Costume 


Catch  the  spirit,  the  joyous  freedom,  of  this 
beautiful  new  fashion  .  .  .  rouge  to  harmo-  I 
nize  with  your  every  costume.  The  charm 
of  it .  .  .  the  individuality  .  .  .  and  the  dif- 
ference that  must  exist  when  all  rouge 
shades  match  your  skin — match  automati- 
cally, without  your  giving  a  thought  to  it. 
Well  you  know  that  usual  rouge  does  not 
have  this  characteristic.  Instead  you  have 
memories  of  dire  disappointment,  times   I 
when  you  felt  "horrid"  because  off  color    ' 
make-up  spoiled  the  glory  of  your  gown. 

Now  what  has  happened?  .  .  .  how  can  you 

vary  the  old  idea  .  .  .  and  select  rouge  shades 

to  match  costume,  not  troubling  to  match 

your  skin?  Just  this:  Princess  Pat  rouge  does 

not  blot  out  the  stan.     The  natural  color  is    I 

caused  by  the  blood  showing  through  the  skin 

— because  the  skin  is  transparent  and  has 

scarcely  any  color  of  its  own.    Princess  Pat 

rouge  is  sympathetic  to  skin  tones.     Thus 

whatever  color  your  skin  shows — and  every-    I 

one  has  some  color — is  retained  when  you  use 

Princess  Pat  rouge.     To  this   natural  color,  Princess  Pat  adds. 

Thus  the  beautiful  tints  imparted  by  Princess  Pat  rouge  seem  to 

come  from  within  the  skin. 

WHY  Different  Colors  of  Costume  Demand  Different  Shades  of  Rouge 

You  have  learned  how  all  shades  of  Princess  Pat  match  every  skin, 
why  the  effect  is  invariably  natural  and  beautiful.  But  there  is 
another  requirement.  Every  costume  you  wear  has  a  certain  color 
value.  You  recognize  this  when  you  match  dress,  hose,  shoes,  hats 
so  that  the  ensemble  is  harmonious.  It  is  even  mere  vitally  im- 
portant to  recognize  it  when  you  select  rouge  shades. 

The  great  mistake  with  rouge  has  been  this:  you  had  just  one 
shade — say  medium.  To  secure  more,  or  less,  color  you  used  more, 
or  less,  rouge.  But  the  shade  remained  the  same.  You  couldn't  use 
other  shades  for  only  one  would  match  your  skin.  So  your  rouge 
that  might  have  looked  well  with  delicate  pastel  dresses,  was  less 
than  ineffectual  with  brilliant  red  costumes — and  so  on  through 
the  range  of  color  combinations  of  costume  and  complexion. 


Process  Pat  Lip  Rouge  a  ?iew  sensation  — 
nothing  less.  For  it  dots  what  no  other  lip  rouge 
has  ever  done.  Princess  Pal  Lip  Rouge,  colors  that 
inside  moist  surface  of  tips  as  well  as  outside.  Is 
truly  indelible.    You'll  love  it!

Marvelous  New  Beauty  If  You  Follow  These  Hints  For  Choosing  Rouge 

For  gowns  of  all  red  shades,  select  Princess  Pat  Vivid,  cr  Princess 
Pat  Squaw.  Even  the  palest  blonde — one  who  has  thought  she 
simply  could  not  wear  bright  red — is  beautiful  in  flaming  colors 
through  use  of  Vivid  or  Squaw  to  set  the  right  color  note  in  the 
cheeks.  For  gowns  of  purple,  violet,  blue,  use  Squaw,  Theatre  or 
Medium.  When  you  wear  yellow,  orange,  green,  your  cheeks  are 
wonderful  with  Princess  Pat  English  Tint.  With  soft  pastel  cos- 
tumes, achie\e  the  complexion  note  of  cool,  delicious  serenity 
with  Princes?  Pat  Medium  or  Theatre.  For  tan  effect,  use  Princess 
Pat  Summerian.  For  evening  wear,  use  Princess  Pat  Nite.  This 
indeed  is  a  marvelous  shade,  since  it  responds  as  gloriously  to 
artificial  lignt  as  the  most  perfect  daytime  rouge  does  to  sunlight.

TRUE!  Men,  like  bees,  are  drawn  to 
the  flower  that  is  delectablv  fra- 
grant! But  of  what  use  perfume,  if  on 
closer  scrutiny,  these  critical  men 
find  that  all  your  attractiveness  flies 
away  when  you  smile? 

Don't  forget  that  to  he  alluring,  a 
smile  must  reveal  only  brilliant, white 
teeth  !  And  sound,  white  teeth  are  de- 
pendent on  sound,  firm  gums! 

The  foods  of  these  modern  days  are 
far  too  soft  and  creamy  to  stimulate 
the  gums— to  keep  them  hard.  Now 


they're  soft  and  flabby.  Tender,  too. 
You  have  "pink  tooth  brush"— or 
you're  likely  to  have  it. 

And  if  you're  wise,  you'll  do  some- 
thing about  this  unhealthy  condition 
of  the  gums.  For  "pink  tooth  brush" 
not  only  can  dull  the  teeth,  make 
them  grayish-looking— but  it  may 
endanger  the  i  i  of  the  teeth. 

And  all  too  often  it  leads  to  gum 
troubles  as  serious  as  gingivitis  and 
Vincent's  disease— even  the  rare  but 
dreaded  pyorrhea. 

If  you'll  get  some  Ipana  Tooth  Pasic, 
and  rub  a  bit  of  it  into  your  gums 


everv  time  you  clean  your  teeth, you 
won't  have  to  worry  about  "pink 
tooth  brush."  The  massage  stimu- 
lates the  gums,  of  course.  But  the 
ziratol  in  Ipana  (ziratol  is  a  splendid 
toning  agent)  aids  the  massage  in 
firming  the  gums. 

Ipana  is  first  ol  all  a  splendid  mod- 
ern tooth  paste,  and  keeps  teeth  beau- 
tifully white  and  clean.  Ipana  with 
massage  keeps  the  gumi  hard  and 
healthy.  Ipana  with  massage  /• 
your  smile!  So  today— start  in  with 
Ipana,  and  you  cut  forget  about  "pink 
tooth  brush."

"I  LOVE  YOU" 

he  told  this  blonde 

THOUGH  men  fall  in  love  more  easily  with 
blondes  than  with  brunettes,  tests  show  that 
"blondes  who  have  dull,  faded-looking  hair  do 
not  appeal  to  men  nearly  as  much  as  when 
the  hair  is  radiant,  golden  and  young-looking. 
BLONDEX,  an  amazing  special  shampoo,  gives 
streaky  lifeless  hair  the  lustrous  golden  sheen 
men  adore  and  other  women  envy.  BLONDEX 
contains  no  dye,  no  harmful  chemicals.  Is  re- 
markably beneficial  to  both  hair  and  scalp.  Try

your  hair  with  wavy,  silky  softness  and  radiant 
golden  lights!  At  all  drug  and  department  stores.

Between   Ourselves 


THE  producers  haven't  had  much 
luck  in  their  endless  hunt  for 
"another  Garbo."  None  at  all,  if  you 
want  to  ask  me.  Dietrich  isn't  it. 
She's  as  original  as  Garbo,  herself — 
and  if  Marlene  had  climbed  to  fame 
first,  Greta  might  very  likely  have 
been  called  "another  Dietrich."  That 
is,  at  first.  Even  Garbo's  enemies 
(both  of  them)  can't  bring  forward 
any  girl  who  is  likely  to  cause  Greta 
any  loss  of  sleep  during  her  sun-baths. 


BUT  meanwhile  the  search  for 
I  "another  Gable"  goes  on  apace. 
And  with  a  little  better  fortune.  For 
one  thing,  M-G-M  may  have  made  a 
tactical  error  in  having  Clark  support 
one  big  feminine  star  after  another, 
instead  of  pushing  him  up  stardom 
on  his  own — in  a  hurry.  The  studio's 
tardiness  gave  their  competitors  a 
breathing  spell — time  to  scout  around 
and  unearth  rough-hewn,  dimpled 
he-men  of  their  own.  Every  studio 
has  found  one;  some  have  discovered 
two.  Maybe  none  of  them  will  pull 
like  Gable  with  the  public.  But  at 
least  they  have  the  chance  to  try. 
Look  over  the  story  on  the  "new 
Gables"  a  few  pages  farther  on — and 
get  a  hint  of  the  number  of  his  rivals. 
Or  should  I  say  "would-be  rivals"? 


IT'S  a  funny  thing.  I  mean — that 
Garbo's  appeal  lies  in  the  fact  that 
she  is  like  a  woman  no  one  ever 
knew;  beautiful,  silent,  inscrutable, 
exotic,  mysterious,  all  at  one  and  the 
same  time.  While  Gable's  appeal  lies 
in  just  the  other  direction.  Everyone 
feels  that  lie  has  known  Clark  some 
time  or  other.  Or  known  his  twin 
brother — a  big,  good-natured,  half- 
handsome,  half-homely,  straightfor- 
ward chap,  with  a  handshake  that 
makes  you  rise  on  your  toes. 


HAROLD  LLOYD,  it  seems,  got 
wind  of  the  fact  that  a  couple 
of  the  studios  were  planning  pictures 
kidding  Hollywood.  That  gave 
Harold  an  idea.  He'd  offset  the  digs. 
So  he's  making  "Movie  Crazy," 
which  will  be  a  comedy  laid  in 
Hollywood,  but  won't  be  laid  against 
it.  According  to  Harold's  version, 
it  is  a  place  of  glamour  and  romance, 
which  has  given  the  world  the  best 
cure  yet  for  the  galloping  insanity  of 
boredom.  Can  you  imagine  what  the 
world  would  be  like  without  movies? 
It  would  be  like  Harold  Lloyd  in  a 
comedy  without  his  horn-rimmed 
specs — not  half  so  entertaining  with- 
out as  with! 


HOLLYWOOD  should  get  ready 
to  slaughter  the  fatted  calf. 
(But  humanely,  I  beg —  as  will  you, 
after  reading  what  George  Arliss  says 
a  few  pages  hence.)  The  prodigal  is 
coming  home.  I'm  referring  to  Leslie 
Howard,  who  hasn't  yet  got  any 
farther  than  New  York  on  his  way 
back  to  that  rural  cottage  in  England 
where  he  was  going  to  retire  from  the 
noisy,  noisy  world.  If  all  goes  well, 
he  will  do  his  New  York  play,  "The 
Animal  Kingdom,"  on  the  screen  this 
summer.  And  that,  I  warn  you,  will 
be  a  treat. 


AND,  as  if  to  fill  our  cup  to  over- 
l\  flowing,  along  comes  the  addi- 
tional news  that  Helen  Hayes  also 
has  agreed  to  come  back,  and  be  for- 
given, this  summer.  This,  despite  the 
fact  that  she  and  husband  Charles 
MacArthur  have  just  bought  a  quaint 
old  Colonial  farm  in  New  Jersey — 
one  of  those  places  that  are  hard  to 
leave.  But  once  the  Great  God  Public 
speaks  its  will,  few  care  to  ignore  it. 
It  demands  Helen.  So  what  can  a 
poor  girl  do?  And  may  they  make 
her  a  star — if  they  have  time,  before 
she  slips  away  again! 


MOVIE  CLASSIC  is  happy  to 
report,  in  this  issue,  that 
Renee  Adoree  has  fought  her  way 
back  to  health,  and  soon  will  be  back 
before  the  cameras  again.  There  is 
even  a  rumor  that  she  may  be  in  her 
old  role  in  "The  Big  Parade,"  which 
is  soon  to  be  remade  as  a  talkie.  And 
when  the  studio  does  get  around  to 
actual  production,  I  hope  they'll  at 
least  consider  John  Gilbert  for  his 
old  role  of  the  doughboy.  Maybe 
someone  else  could  do  it  as  well  as 
John,  but  to  me  (and  to  how  many 
millions  more?)  that  role  is  indelibly 
associated  with  John,  and  John  alone. 


BELIEVE  it  or  not,  but  Johnny 
Weissmuller  is  scheduled  to  do 
an  Arctic  picture.  What!  cover  up 
all  that  physique  (six  feet,  four  inches 
of  it)  in  furs?  Even  so,  someone 
ought  to  send  protests  to  the  Society 
for  Prevention  of  Spring  Fever  in 
Eskimo  Maidens.

Movie  Chinese  Not  So  Clever 

WHY  not  genuine  Chinese  characters 
in  pictures  instead  of  the  fake  vari- 
ety which  fools  nobody  and  destroys  any 
illusion  the  fan  might  enjoy?  In  a  state  like 
California  which  is  so  populous  with 
Chinese  it  ought  not  to  be  a  difficult  matter 
to  select  and  train  youthful  Orientals  for 
screen  work  and  when  realism  is  so  insisted 
upon  in  every  other  way  I  wonder  the  pro- 
ducers do  not  wake  up  to  the  fact  that  to 
take  a  pretty  white  girl,  fix  up  her  features 
with  collodion  and  other  devices  for  creating 
a  slant-eyed  effect,  instruct  her  to  affect 
little,  mincing  steps  and  a  coy  manner,  and 
bill  her  as  a  Chink  maiden,  is  merely  turning 
what  would  otherwise  be  a  good  drama  into 
a  kind  of  semi-comedy  or  farce. 

Perhaps  you  recall  the  flop  which  "Java 
Head "  made  some  years  ago  because  the 
producers  tried  to  put  Leatrice  Joy  across 
as  the  Manchu  wife?  This  sort  of  thing  is 
still  being  done,  in  spite  of  the  remarkable 
progress  being  made  in  every  other  angle  of 
screen  work.  Even  the  inimitable  Chaney 
was  not  entirely  successful  as  a  Chinese,  and 
Edward  G.  Robinson  is  much  less  so. 

Warner  Oland  is  about  the  only  white 
man  who  doesn't  look  phony  when  essaying 
a  Chinese  part  but  with  him  it  is  a  case  of 
good  luck,  rather  than  good  makeup.  He 
actually  has  Oriental  features.  But  why 
is  Anna  May  Wong  the  only  Chinese  girl 
obtainable  for  leading  parts?  Loretta 
Young  was — only  Loretta  Young  in  "The 
Hatchet  Man."

Gurbo's  Silence 

I  SAW  Greta  Garbo  in  "Mata  Hari,"  and 
1  was  moved  by  it.  Not  by  the  plot  of 
the  "exotic  epic,"  which  got  badly  tangled 
up  in  Garbo's  "ridiculously  long  lashes," 
but  by  the  analogy  I  seemed  to  detect 
between  the  character  of  the  famous  spy 
and  the  equally  famous  screen  star. 

I  found  myself  wondering  if,  as  there  was 
a  grim  power,  Wilhelmstrasse,  behind  Mata 
Hari — dictating  her  every  move  and  mood 
— there  might  not  be  an  equally  implacable 
power  behind  Greta  Garbo,  keeping  her  a

Credit  Where  Credit  Is  Due 

RECENT  scribes — their  name  is  legion! — 
.  seem  to  be  satisfied   that  the  movies 
are  "taking  a  lesson"  from  the  stage.    Per- 
haps.   But,  tolling  'em  off  on  your  fingers 
with  me,  let's  look  at  the  most  recent  suc- 
cesses and  see  who  starred  in  them: 
Richard  Dix  in  "Cimarron." 
Ronald  Colman  in  "  Arrowsmith." 
Mae  Marsh  in  "Over  the  Hill." 
Lionel  Barrymore  in  anything. 
Garbo  in  "Susan  Lenox." 
Norma  Shearer  in  "Private  Lives." 
Wallace  Beery  in  "Hell  Divers." 
Sylvia  Sidney  in  "Street  Scene." 
Sylvia  Sidney  in  anything! 
With  the   exception    of    Chatterton    and 
Sidney,  a  little  while  back,  and  Barrymore 
some  time  back,  these  are  the  Old  Guard  of 
famous  film  folk!   What  technique,  stage  or 
otherwise,  could  make  a  better  Beery  than 
we  saw  in  "Hell  Divers?"    Who  could  have 
marched  through  "Arrowsmith"  with  more 
savoir-faire,  than  Colman? 

How  could  you  improve  upon  Mae 
Marsh  as  the  mother  in  "Over  the  Hill"? 
Or  La  Shearer  in  "Private  Lives"?  Or 
Dick  Dix  in  that  turbulent  epic  "Cimar- 
ron?" 

You   couldn't!     "Nothing  succeeds   like 
success" — whether   your   artist    be   drilled 
by    an     impresario,    a    megaphone,    or    a 
machine  gun!     Whether  the  setting  be  a 
New  York  stage,  a  Hollywood  No  Man's 
Land — or  a  Bangkok  magic  carpet! 
Let  us,  then,  give  California  her  due!

What-a-star 

WHEN  a  Gable  steals  a  picture  from  a 
Beery — that  isn't  news!  But  when  a 
Beery  brigands  one  from  Whataman  Gable 
— that  IS  news!" 

Wally  Beery's  acting  has  set  a  new  high 
for  "individualism!"  B.  P.  (Before  Pro- 
hibition) the  customers  went  "Bleary." 
Now  they  go  "Beery!" 

He  has  that  rare  attribute — an  omni- 
present "forgetfulness  of  self".  .  .  in  these 
artless  days  of  super- 
stars, super-press- 
agents,  super- impre- 
sarios, super-VANI- 
TY!!  You  must  admit 
there  is  something 
about  a  man  who  can 
thus  submerge  his  iden- 
tity in  the  master 
stroke  of  his  portrayals. 
What  a  pity  that  for 
years,  this  genial  artist 
struggled,  his  light  sub- 
merged under  a  figura- 
tive bushel.  But  now 
he's  a  star.  And  what- 
a-star! — W-  Naugle,

Larry  Reid*s  Slant  On  The  Latest  Films 


GRAND  ^  take  off  my  hat  and  make  a  low,  sweeping  bow  in  the  direction  of  Holly- 
wood. For  the  movies  have  improved  upon  both  Vicki  Baum's  novel  and 
HOTEL  Vicki  Baum's  play  about  life  in  a  great  hotel.  It  is  still  melodrama,  yes — but 
so  vividly,  so  excitingly  has  director  Edmund  Goulding  woven  his  picture  that 
you  are  likely  to  leave  the  theatre  gurgling  about  art.  Garbo  gives  the  greatest  performance 
of  her  career  as  Grusinskaya,  the  lonely,  famous  dancer.  Lionel  Barrymore,  for  one — as 
Kringelein,  the  invalid — forces  her  extra  effort.  So  does  Joan  Crawford,  as  the  exotic,  sombre 
stenographer.  Hardly  less  notable  are  the  performances  of  John  Barrymore,  as  von  Geigem, 
the  lover-thief;  Wallace  Beery,  as  Preysing,  the  villain  of  the  piece;  Lewis  Stone,  as  the 
bitter  doctor;  and  Jean  Hersholt,  as  Sen},  the  porter.  Here  is  an  entertaining  event  in  any 
movie-lover's  life!

IT'S   TOU  GH 
TO   BE    FAMOUS 


To  me,  this  is  far  and  away  the  best  thing  Douglas  Fairbanks, 
Jr.,  has  done  since  "The  Dawn  Patrol" — and  is  about  as 
different  from  that  as  it  could  be.  It  is  a  comedy — one  with 
an  original  idea,  for  a  change — and  young  Doug,  wearing 
that  famous  Fairbanks  grin,  steps  out  and  proves  himself  every  bit  as  amusing  as  Doug,  Sr., 
ever  has  been.  After  the  manner  of  Lindbergh,  he  captures  the  fancy  of  a  nation  by  a  single- 
handed  deed  of  valor  (as  a  submarine  commander,  not  a  flier) — and  from  that  moment  he  is  a 
harassed  hero.  All  sorts  of  women  want  to  kiss  him;  all  sorts  of  men  want  to  pump  his  hand; 
statesmen  want  to  make  speeches  at  him;  reporters  want  to  interview  him;  even  his  wife 
(Mary  Brian)  is  convinced  he  shouldn't  be  as  modest  as  he  is.  Besides  being  amusing,  Doug 
is  very  real — and  the  dialogue  gives  him  every  chance  to  be  both. 


BUT   THE 

FLESH    IS    WEAK 


It  hurts  to  say  it — but  the  picture  is  also  weak.  It's  another 
of  those  Continental  comedies — a  mixture  of  froth  and 
spice — and  Robert  Montgomery  again  is  a  charming  wastrel. 
And  this  type  of  role,  like  this  type  of  comedy,  is  the  kind  that 
can't  bear  repeating  many  more  times.  Bob  and  his  father  (C.  Aubrey  Smith)  are  penniless 
hangers-on  in  English  society,  and  both  are  on  the  lookout  for  women  with  money.  Bob  falls 
in  love  with  a  poor  girl  (a  newcomer  named  Nora  Gregor),  while  engaged  to  a  rich  one 
(another  newcomer  named  Heather  Thatcher) — and,  somehow,  you  can't  see  how  he  makes 
such  an  error,  for  Miss  Thatcher  has  it  all  over  Miss  Gregor.  He  finally  gets  out  of  the  tangle 
(as  you  know  all  along  he  will),  even  though  he  does  it  in  a  manner  reminiscent  of  William 
Haines  in  his  "Brown  of  Harvard"  days.    Or  should  I  say  "daze"? 


SYMPHONY    OF 
SIX    MILLION 


I'm  glad  I  didn't  miss  this  one — if  for  no  other  reason  than 
that  it  gives  Ricardo  Cortez  the  chance  to  come  into  his  own 
at  last.  He  has  been  stealing  pictures  for  years  without  ever 
getting  the  break  he  deserved.  But  here  it  is,  praise  be. 
Fannie  Hurst,  who  knows  Jewish  character  as  few  other  authors  do,  has  written  a  fine,  though 
sentimental  story  of  a  boy  who  gets  his  start  in  the  Jewish  section  of  the  East  Side  of  New 
York,  and  then  is  torn  away  from  his  race  by  the  ambitions  of  his  family,  to  become  a  famous 
doctor  on  Park  Avenue.  Cortez,  who  was  born  on  this  same  East  Side,  knows  whereof  he  is 
acting,  as  the  idealistic  young  son  of  Israel.  Irene  Dunne,  as  the  girl  who  loves  him  and 
finally  wins  him  back  to  his  people,  is  charming  without  living  her  part.  Cortez,  however, 
lives  his — and  that's  sufficient. 


THIS    IS 
THE    NIGHT 


In  the  New  York  showing  of  this  clever,  melodious  and  delightfully 
sexy  farce,  Lily  Damita  received  the  lowest  billing  of  all — and  this 
was  a  puzzle  to  me.  Though  I  was  gratified  to  note  that  Roland 
Young  and  Charlie  Ruggles  received  top  billing.  The  story  is  laid 
in  gay  Paris  and  picturesque  Venice,  and  its  mood  is  as  gay  as  the  travel  catalogues 
say  those  two  cities  are.  Roland  Young,  a  gay  blade,  who  makes  the  mistake  of  pursuing 
Thelma  Todd,  has  to  tell  her  husband  (Cary  Grant)  he  is  married — and  then  gets  Lily  Damita 
to  pose  as  his  wife.  Except  for  Thelma,  Lily  manages  to  intrigue  everybody,  including 
Roland's  pal,  Charlie  Ruggles,  and  Thelma's  husband.  It's  a  regular  merry-go-round  of  a 
story,  with  lilting  songs,  sparkling  humor,  a  happy  cast,  and  the  most  hilarious  tipsy  scene 
yet — between  Roland  and  Charlie.    These  two  are  devastatingly  amusing. 


SCARFACE  It  took  courage  for  Howard  Hughes  to  produce  this  picture — but  the 
New  York  censors  had  even  more  nerve  to  forbid  New  York  movie- 
goers the  privilege  of  seeing  it.  For  privilege  it  is.  It  is  one  of  the  most  powerful  pictures  of 
all  time.  There  has  never  been  anything  like  it  before,  and  probably  never  will  be  again.  The 
case  against  the  gangster  is  stated  fully,  dramatically,  unforgettably.  You  see,  in  vivid 
episodes  reproduced  from  real  life,  the  rise  of  a  cold-blooded  killer,  you  see  the  murder  he  gets 
away  with,  you  see  how  coolly  he  defies  all  law,  and  you  want  to  do  something  about  it. 
Paul  Muni  deserves  the  Academy  award  for  his  portrait  of  Scarface.  George  Raft,  as  his 
bodyguard,  is  hardly  less  memorable.  And  Ann  Dvorak,  as  Scarface's  sister,  has  two  tragic 
scenes  that  will  go  down  in  screen  history. 
Demand  to  see  it!

EIGHBORS 

GOINGS-ON     AMONG     THE     PLAYERS 

BY  MARQUIS  BUSBY 


THIS  has  certainly  been 
moving  month  in  Hol- 
lywood. You  see  big  mov- 
ing vans  all  over  the  place, 
and  a  lot  of  people  are 
homeless.  They  moved  in 
such  a  hurry,  just  to  keep  in 
style,  that  they  can't  re- 
member where  they  moved 
to. 

Janet  Gaynor  has  taken 
the  big  house  of  John  (Irish 
tenor)  McCormack.  After 
living  in  a  modest  manse  by 
the  sea  for  a  long  time, 
Janet  has  moved  into  a 
mansion.  Maybe  she's  go- 
ing to  have  parties  and 
things.  Marlene  Dietrich 
moved  from  one  Beverly 
Hills  location  to  another.  A 
newspaper  printed  her  ad- 
dress, and  after  that  she 
might  just  as  well  have  been 
living  in  a  tent  on  the 
Boulevard.  No  more  pri- 
vacy  than  Greta  Garbo 
taking  a  sun  bath. 


What's  this — Garbo  gone  platinum-blonde  for  "As 
You  Desire  Me"?  Nothing  else  but!  And  Erich 
von  Stroheim  no  doubt  is  trying  to  get  her  to  tell 
if  she  dyed  her  hair  or  is  wearing  a  transformation 


A  NOTHER  mover  is  Phil  Holmes, 
/V  who  has  taken  a  three-room 
bungalow  in  Beverly.  It's  different 
from  most  three-room  bungalows. 
It's  on  two  floors,  which  seems  like  an 
awful  lot  of  swank  for  just  three 
rooms. 

Those  happy  newlyweds,  Greta 
Nissen  and  Weldon  Heyburn,  have  a 
new  beach  house  boasting  a  strictly 
private  beach.  That  makes  it  nice  for 
honeymooners. 

But  June  Collyer  and  Stuart 
Erwin  win  first  prize  for  originality 
during  moving  month.  They  have  a 
lease  on  a  nice  house  in  Beverly  Hills, 
and  much  to  their  dismay,  they  have 
discovered  that  they  still  have  a 
lease  on  an  apartment  in  Hollywood. 
Both  landlords  are  being  pretty  firm 
about  things,  too.  Would  anyone  like 
a  good  lease  which  isn't  working 
much  now? 

STAGE  producers  needn't  be  so 
snooty  about  their  stars  entering 
pictures  any  more.  When  the  foot- 
light  celebrities  wander  back  to 
Times  Square  they  bring  a  nice  army 
of  fans  along  with  them. 

Both    Helen   Hayes,    appearing   in 


"The  Good  Fairy,"  and  Leslie  How- 
ard, busy  with  "The  Animal  King- 
dom," report  exceptionally  rushing 
balcony  business.  Now,  with  big 
stage  attractions,  it  is  usually  fairly 
easy  to  fill  the  orchestra  chairs,  but 
the  balcony  looks  like  the  wide  open 
spaces.  Not  with  these  two  produc- 
tions. Apparently  a  lot  of  film  fans 
have  a  burning  desire  to  see  their 
favorites  in  the  flesh,  and  are  willing 
to  pay  no  more  than  movie  theatre 
prices  for  the  privilege. 

Lawrence  Tibbett  reports  that 
since  he  appeared  in  pictures  there  is 
a  line  of  people  waiting  for  him  at  the 
stage  door.  That  never  happened 
before. 

Movie  names  must  help  the  box 
office  at  the  legitimate  theatres. 
Bebe  Daniels  and  Ben  Lyon  were 
offered  #7500  a  week  to  do  a  stage 
play  in  New  York.  That's  big 
money  in  these  times.  And  you  can 
bet  your  new  Panama  hat  that 
Ziegfeld  doesn't  get  Lupe  Velez  and 
Buddy  Rogers  for  coffee-and-cake 
money,  either. 

And  Lois  Moran  can  afford  Rolls- 
Royces  after  "Of  Thee  I  Sing."

SEPARATED   IS   NONSENSE." MARY  PICKFORD  —   TO //^ 


"I'll  l>e  on  the  set  from  Saturday  morning  till 
Sunday,"  said  Mary  Doran  over  the  wires,  in 
the  voice  of  a  girl  who  realizes  that  the  life  of 
the  most  popular  film  'vamp'  in  Hollywood  is 
not  all  roses.  Off  the  screen  she  has  dark  red 
hair,  brown  eyes,  is  a  swell  sport  and  the  wife  of 
Joe  Sherman,  publicity  man. 

"We've  been  blood  relatives  for  years,"  she 
laughed  when  we  met  her.  Interviewers  were 
taboo  —  since  one  had  made  Joan  Blondell 
neglect  her  lines. 

'  'The  Divorcee'  gave  me  my  first  big  chance,"  said  Mary  Doran. 
"I  wouldn't  call  myself  a  'vamp,'  exactly.  The  word  signifies 
height,  Betty  Blythe,  and  a  multitude  of  snaky  curves.  I  weigh 
ninety-eight! " 

"The  modern  vamp  looks  just  like  an  ingenue — smart  and  clever. 
She  gets  along  by  her  wits.  She  does  have  to  use  her  eyes,  though. 
That's  fine  with  me!  A  girl  can  put  more  meaning  into  one  glance 
than  into  a  hundred  flowery  speeches." 

"When  my  last  show  closed,  a  friend  and  I  went  on  an  automobile 
trip,"  says  Cary  Grant.  "We  threw  some  clothes  into  a  couple  of 
suitcases  and  planned  to  stay  in  Hollywood  two  weeks.  A  director 
— jokingly — asked  me  to  take  a  test  with  a  well-known  actress. 
When  they  saw  it,  they  gave  me  a  contract.    So  here  I  am." 

Cary  has  dark  flashing  eyes,  an  olive  complexion,  and  curly 

black  hair.   When  he  leaves  you  he  springs  to  attention  and  salutes 

— possibly  the  influence  of  hero  roles  in  musical 

comedies. 

■KMlaX  "At  fifteen  I  ran  away  from  home  and  I've 

been  trouping  ever  since.  Paramount  gave  me 
parts  in  'This  Is  the  Night'  and  'Sinners  in  the 
Sun'  but  whether  I'm  going  to  play  one  of 
Rudolph  Valentino's  old  roles  isn't  decided. 
Anyway,  please  don't  compare  me  with  him. 
"Romance?  All  I  ask  of  a  girl  is  to  be  a  good 
sport — one  as  willing  to  ride  in  a  broken-down 
flivver  as  a  new  Rolls.    Or  go  to  prize  fights."

Intelligent  people,  recognizing  the  remarkable 
cleansing  powers  of  Listerine  Tooth  Paste  at25t, 
buy  it  instead  of  dentifrices  in  the  50t  class. 
The  average  saving  is  $3  a  year.  Spend  it  as 
you    please.     Hosiery  is    merely   a   suggestion. 


V    THIS  THRIFT 
DENTIFRICE  BRINGS 
TO   TEETH 


Do  you  want  teeth  that  you  can  be  proud  of .  .  .  that 
are  the  envy  of  others? 

Do  you  want  teeth  that  are  sound  and  healthy? 

Do  you  want  your  mouth  to  feel  refreshed  and  in- 
vigorated . . .  your  breath  to  be  sweet  and  agreeable? 

If  so,  switch  to  Listerine  Tooth  Paste,  the  modern 
dentifrice,  at  the  common  sense  price  of  25  cents. 

This  tooth  paste  has  supplanted  older  and  costlier 
favorites  in  the  esteem  of  both  men  and  women. 
Not  because  of  the  price — which  saves  you  approxi- 
mately $3.00  a  year — but  because  of  the  quick, 
satisfying  results  it  achieves. 

When  we  created  Listerine  Tooth  Paste,  we  real- 
ized that  it  must  be  superior  in  order  to  win  users  in 
a  field  already  overcrowded  with  good  dentifrices. 
We  ask  you  to  try  a  tube  and  judge  whether  or 
not  we  have  succeeded. 

Listerine  Tooth  Paste  contains  special  and  mod- 
ern cleansing  and  polishing  agents.  Dissolved  in 
saliva  they  reach  front  and  back,  and  penetrate  be- 
tween the  teeth,  erasing  tartar,  tobacco  stains,  and 
discolorations.  After  a  few  brushings,  your  teeth  as- 
sume a  new  brilliance  and  luster  that  you  welcome. 
Your  gums  feel  firm  and  healthy.  Your  mouth  has 
a  continual  sensation  of  cleanliness.  You  realize  that 
at  last  you've  found  a  tooth  paste  that  really  does 
something  for  you. 

And  remember,  for  these  benefits  you  are  paying 
about  half  of  what  you  would  ordinarily  pay.  That 
we  can  offer  a  product  of  the  quality  of  Listerine 
Tooth  Paste  at  25c,  is  due  to  three  factors:  (1), 
The  ability  to  buy  raw  material  on  a  large  scale  and 
hence  at  a  lower  price.  (2),  The  ability  of  cutting 
manufacturing  cost  by  means  of  modern  machinery. 
(3),  The  equipment  to  distribute  the  finished  prod- 
uct at  a  low  price.  All  these  economies  are  passed 
on  to  you  in  this  dentifrice  so  worthy  of  the  Listerine 
name.  Lambert  Pharmacal  Company,  St.  Louis,  Mo.

When  Clark  Gable  fir-it  thrilled  the  customers,  he, 

himself,   was  called   "a  second   Valentino."    But 

everybody  lias  forgotten  that  now.  He  has  become

is,  or  is  being  made  to  appear,  so  very  much  the

I  I  hey  once  acted  together  on  Broadway  in  "Love, 
Honor   and    Betray" — and  George  had   the  more 
important  role.) 

just  recently  I  was  lunching  in  the  Warner 
commissary  with  Douglas  Fairbanks,  Jr.    Upon 
the  walls,  completelj   surrounding  us,  were  ten 
oit  welve  new  pictures  of  ( Jeorge  Brent,  the  latest  port  ran  s 
made  by  a  studio  photographer.     1  here  were  pictures  ol 
the  dark,  he-mannish  Mr.  Brent  in  <  verj  conceivable  pose 
and  posture,  not  to  mention  expression,  that  has  marked 
(lark    Gable's    own    newest    photographic    sittings.      Mr. 
Brent  in  an  old  sweat-shirt  with  his  hair  slightly  towsled 
Mr.   Brent  scowling  slightly  at  the  camera.    Mr.   Brent

Doug.,  Jr.,  Saw  a  Likeness 

( )l  ( I.  Jr..  took  one  look  at  the 
interesting  display  of  Brent 
a  la  Gable  that  alternately  smiled 
and  gland  at  us  from  the  walls  and 
inquired  the  name  of  the  production 
Mr.  Brent  was  then  engaged  upon. 
Someone  at  the  next  table  answered: 
"I  he  Rich  Are  Always  with   I 

"Amen,"   said   young   Doug.     "So 
are  the  Gables." 

So  startling  were  the  resemblances 

that  they  made  one  stop  and  wonder 

it  the  Warner  Brothers  really  mean 

it  when  they  protest  that  George  is 

just  Mr.    Brent   and   nor  another 

you- k now- w  ho- 1 -mean. 

Only    a    moment    later, 
Mr.      Brent,      h  im  sel  f, 
walked    in  —  and    seemed, 
to    all    outward    appear- 
ances  to   be  an    affable, 
ti  iendly  and  thoroughly 
likable  young  man.  \  ery 
much,     we     might     say, 
like  another  certain   af- 
fable,   friendly    and    lik- 
able \  oung  man. 
I  pon    e\  en     closer     in- 
vestigation,    it     turns     out 
that  the  Brent  career  has  not 
Ken  unlike  the  Gable  career 
m     main'     respects.       ( leorge 
Brent  served  a  long  apprentice- 
ship in  stock  companies  before 

coining      to      I  lollywood.       I  le 

has  played  perhaps  every  conceivable  stock  engagement 
from  villains  to  heroes,  both  young  and  old.  (Ditto  for 
Gable.)  During  the  first  six  months  ol  his  Warner 
Brothers  contract,  he  was  noi  particularly  noticed  by  that 
astute  company,  and  neither  was  Gable  by  M-G-M  in  his 
early    days.      Bui     success    happened    suddenly    to    (leorge 

Brent,  jusi  as  it  happened  suddenly  to  Clark  Gable  (and 
we  can't  help  believing  that  (.'lark's  success  as  a  screen

Gossip  From  The  West  Coast 


relationship  between  Ruth  and  Paul  became  as  strained 
as  good  old  lemon  juice.  During  the  making  of  their  last 
picture  they  barely  spoke. 

Mavbe  it  is  just  possible  that  a  star  and  even  her 
"favorite  leading  man"  can  make  too  many  pictures 
together.    Warner   Brothers  and  George  Brent  take  note. 


Here's  to  crime! 
say  Bela  Lugosi 
and  Boris  Karloff, 
with  leers  in  their 
eyes.  Boris     is 

about  to  chill  you 
in  "The  Old  Dark 
House,"  and  no 
telling  what  Bela 
will  do  next.  Won- 
der what's  in  the 
beakers? 


BY  the  way,  did  you  know  that  Universal  has 
just  taken  over  Paul  Lukas'  Paramount  con- 
tract and  that,  from  now  on,  he  wdl  be  at  Universal? 
Universal  liked  Paul  in  "Strictly  Dishonorable" 
(as  who  didn't?),  and  when  they  heard  that  he 
and  the  bosses  had  disagreed,  they  put  in  a  bid 
for  him.  And  Paul,  like  Barkis,  was  willing.  His 
first  picture  for  Universal  will  be  "Zeppelin," 
opposite  Tala  Birell,  the  blonde  Roumanian 
beauty  who  is  the  Laemmles'  new  pride. 


MARLENE  DIETRICH'S  little  girl  is  growing  to 
look  more  and  more  like  her  father,  Rudolph 
Sieber.  When  she  first  came  to  Hollywood  many  people 
thought  Maria  resembled  Marlene,  but  as  she  continues 
to  grow  up,  it  becomes  more  and  more  apparent  that  the 
little  girl  is  going  to  "take  after"  her  father,  who  cables  her 
every  week,  asking  when  she  is  coming  to  visit  him  in 
Europe.  But  if  the  mountain  can't  go  to  Mahomet,  well, 
Mahomet  can  go  to  the  mountain.  Which  is  by  way  of 
reporting  that  Herr  Sieber  is  visiting  his  family  in  Holly- 
wood— helping  them  find  a  new  house  that  the  tourists 
and  crank  letter-writers  won't  know  about. 

.Marlene  has  gone  so  far  as  to  arm  her  chauffeur,  to  guard 
the  little  girl  when  she  goes  out  to  play. 


Johnnv  Weissmuller  should  smile!  He  has  a  new 
contract  almost  as  big  and  handsome  as  he  is! 


GEORGE  BRENT  is  Ruth  Chat- 
terton's  "favorite  leading  man." 
1  hey  say  the  fair  Ruth  is  so 
enthused  over  Warner  Brothers' 
chief  competition  to  Clark  Gable  that  she 
reads  every  script  with  a  weather-eye  out 
for  a  role  for  George. 

At  the  beginning  of  her  Paramount 
contract,  Ruth's  "favorite  leading  man" 
was  Paul  Lukas.  Remember  all  the 
pictures  they  made  together?  Everything 
was  hotsy-totsy  for  the  first  few  pictures 
and  then  suddenly  the    formerly   friendly

Them  Over 


By     Dorothy    Manners 


TUST  recently  Walter  Winchell  slyly  hinted  that  this 
department  was  'way  off  the  track  in  stringing  with 
( iilbert  Roland  .is  head  man  in  Norma  Talmadge's  af- 
fections.    Walter   sort    of   insinuated    that   we    would    be 
pretty  sorn   it  Norma  should  ankle  up  to  the  altar  with 
!  when  they  get  their  mutual  divoi 
Hut  just  between  you  and  Walter  and  me,  Norma  sent 
hack  a  ream  of  explanatory  messages  to  Roland  all  about 
"this  silly  New  ^  ork  gossip"  and  the  gist  of  it 
v.  as  not  to  believe  all  you  hear,  even  over  the 
radio. 

We're  still  stringing  with  Roland.  That's  our 
story,  and  maybe  we're  stuck  with  it.  On  the 
other  hand      ma\  be  ni  it . 


IT  LOOKED  as  though  Mrs.  Josef  von  Stern- 
berg, or  rather,  the  former  Mrs.  Josef  von 
Sternberg  was  all  set  to  drop  her  alien  ation-of- 
affections  suit  against  Marlene  Dietrich.  The 
truce  lasted  about  twenty-four  hours,  when  Mrs. 
von  Sternberg  announced  that  the  suit  would  be  dropped 
when,  and  it,  certain  letters  involved  in  the  suit  were 
published. 

1  he  letters  in  question  are  said  to  be  one  from  a  Europe- 
an author  to  .Miss  Dietrich,  another  from  Miss  Dietrich  to 
Mrs.  von  Sternberg  and  a  third  from  Mrs.  von  Steinberg 
to  Miss  Dietrich.  The  contents  were  not  disclosed,  but 
one  supposes  that  the  author  took  back  statements 
that  he  attributed  to  Marlene — namely,  To  the  effect  that 
she  had  told  him  that  Jdsef  was  to  be  divorced  from 
his  wife  so  that  he  would  be  free  to  marry  her  (Marlene). 
from  the  beginning.  La  Dietrich  has  denied  making  any 
such  statement — denied  it  emphatically,  1  might  add.  And 
so  has  her  husband,  Herr  Seiber.

PHILLIPS 
HOLMES  and 
Paramount  must  be 
having  some  little 
contract  difficulty. 
At  least,  Phil's

his  contract  will 
not  be  renewed  in 
the  Fall. 

As  usual,  there 
are  several  gossip- 
i  c  .i  so  n  s.  One  is 
that  Phil  is  getting 
too  difficult  to  han- 
dle and  wants  only 
"artistic"  stones. 
flu-  other  is  that 
Phil  hasn't  been 
holding  up  suffi-

office  to  warrant 
the  big  increase  in 
salary  he  is  due  to  receive 
on  his  next  option.

there.  But  Madge  says 
"No."  She  further  says 
she  has  had  the  diamond 
ring  ever  since  she  was  a 
little  girl  and  that  it  has  no 
meaning.  As  soon  as  Tom's 
divorce  from  Zasu  Pitts

have  appeared  opposite  Connie  in  "The  Truth

"Hello,  Connie,"  he  said.  "Sorry,  but  I  can't 
start  work  in  the  picture  next  week.  I've  just 
broken  my  leg.    Fll  be  laid  up  for  a  month." 

Connie  gave  him  all  sorts  of  advice  about 
bone-setting  doctors  and  then  called  her  director 
to  inform  him  they  were  minus  a  leading  man,  on 
the  verge  of  production. 

The  real  truth  about  Hollywood  is  that  it  is  a 
pretty  topsy-turvy  affair.

sad — and  why  men  can  t  often  tell  how 
they  rate  with  her?  Read  her  character 
through  Faciology 

By    Toni    Gallant 

STUDY  the  portrait  of  Sylvia  Sidney  at  the  right — 
one  of  her  favorite  portraits,  showing  her  in  her 
favorite  mood,  a  wistful  mood.  See  if  you  can  guess

marked  with  letters.  Then  check  your  guesses  with  the 
chart  below  the  portrait — telling  you,  feature  by  feature, 
v.  hat  Physiognomy  reveals  about  her  character. 

It  is  a  well-known  fact  that  Sylvia  Sidney  was  chosen 
Inr  the  screen  at  face  value — and  that  she  was  originally 
intended  to  take  the  place  of  Clara  How.  They  do  re- 
semble one  another  in  that  their  faces  are  both  round  and 
agreeable  to  look  at — but,  outside  of  that,  the  resemblance 
ceases.  Clara  Bow  and  Sylvia  Sidney  are  two  totallj 
different  types. 

1  he  science  of  Physiognomy  could  have  told  that  in  one 
glance.  It  is  true  that  they  are  both  vital  in  type,  bur  they 
are  extreme  opposites  when  it  comes  to  thought  and 
temperament. 

Sylvia  Sidney  likes  sad  moods.  She  clothes  them  about 
her  like  soft  veils.  I > 1 1 1  inherently,  sin-  is  not  in  the  least 
pessimistic.  Fai  from  it.  Deep  down  within  herself,  there 
is  sin  li  a  love  ol  life  and  such  vitality,  that  she  is  almost  .1 
child  in  her  appreciation  of  things.  Not  childish — but 
1  lnlillike.  She  is  as  new  and  fresh  and  naive  as  only  a  child 
can  be.  For  this  reason  her  performances  are  a  pleasure 
to  heboid — she  gets  such  a  lug  "kick"  out  of  them. 
Acting  is  like  a  game  to  her. 

Sylvia  Shyer  Than  Clara 

SYLVIA  has  plenty  of  the  How  charm,  bur  she  is  much 
soberer,  and  cannot  hope  to  possess  that  fien  abandon 
that  was  so  likable  m  the  llamehke  "It"  girl.  But  at  tin- 
same  time  Clara  could  never  own  the  shy  naivete  that  is 
so  naturally  Sylvia's. 

Intelligence  plays  a  big  part  in  Sylvia  Sidney's  charactei . 
She  has  the  sixth  sense.    It  is  revealed  in  her  profile,  her

good-natured,  but  persevering.   Likes  to  be  easygoing.

Pauline  Karloff  was  divorced  from 
Boris  Karloff  three  years  ago,  when 
he  was  unknown.  When  he  sud- 
denly became  famous  overnight,  as 
the  new  mystery  man  of  the  screen, 
sensation-hunters  thought  they  could 
force  her  to  tell  them  about  his  past. 
They  thought  she  would  be  resentful 
of  his  success.  She  has  had  to  move  to 
escape  them 


The  Trials 

of  a 
Hollywood 

Ex-Wife 

By  Dorothy  Calhoun 


THE  names  of  Clark  Gable  and  Boris  Karloff  are 
on  everybody's  tongue  to-day.  Overnight,  after 
years  of  struggle,  they  have  taken  the  movies  by 
storm.  Everybody  wants  to  know  what  they  are 
like  in  private  life,  where  they  came  from,  how  they  got 
their  start.  Someone  discovers  that  both  men  have  been 
divorced.  The  Press  rushes  to  find  the  ex-wives — to  get 
their  stories. 

And  if  the  ex-wives  claim  they  have  nothing  to  tell,  and 
object  to  being  asked  impertinent  questions?  They  will  be 
forced  to  tell,  they  will  be  persecuted!  This  is  no  idle 
statement.  They  have  already  suffered  this  persecution. 
For  months. 

Reporters  for  sensational  newspapers,  feature  writers 
for  Sunday  supplements,  not  satisfied  with  the  prosaic 
details  handed  out  by  publicity  departments,  are  vying 
with  each  other  to  unearth  the  most  startling  stories  pos- 
sible about  these  suddenly  famous  Unknowns.  They  re- 
alize that  the  ex-wives  of  these  men  know  intimate  details 
about  these  men — and  they  expect  ex^wives  to  tell. 

The  lively  curiosity  of  the  public  demands  colorful  facts 
about  their  favorites,  particularly  about  their  pasts. 
"You  Americans!"  Valentino  once  said  bitterly,  "you  set 
up  idols  for  the  fun  of  tearing  them  down!" 

In  the  search  for  color  and  sensation,  everyone  who  has 
known  the  new  stars  intimately  in  the  un- 
known past  is  sought  out.  But  the  brunt  of 
the  attack  falls  on  the  women  they  have  put 
out  of  their  lives  and  who,  the  sensation- 
hunters  argue,  must  be  anxious  to  get  even 
with  them.  //  these  self-appointed  investi- 
gators were  right,  these  women  would  be  pros- 
perous to-day.  Thousands  of  dollars  have 
been  offered  to  them  for  their  stories — and 
indignantly  turned  down.  And  so  they  have 
been  persecuted,  bitterly,  cruelly. 

Refused  Story;  Lost  Work 

JOSEPHINE  DILLON  GABLE,  as  a  re- 
)  suit  of  refusing  a  well-known  magazine 
writer  a  vindictive  story  about  her  ex- 
husband,  Clark  Gable,  has  lost  many  of  her 
voice  training  pupils — because  of  statements 
the  writer  made  about  her.  Pauline  Karloff, 
ex-wife  of  Boris,  has  had  her  telephone  dis- 
connected   and   has   finallv   been   forced    to 


Does  Clark  Gable  realize  how  his  ex-wife, 
Josephine  Dillon,  has  been  persecuted  by  re- 
porters because  she  will  not  tell,  even  for  a 
price,  the  intimate  details  of  their  life  together? 
Does  Boris  Karloff  realize  what  his  ex-wife  has 
similarly  suffered  by  remaining  silent?  No  one 
can  realize — until  reading  this  story! 


change  her  address  to  escape  scandal-hunters.  Borh  of 
these  women,  almost  distraught,  half-sick  with  anxiety, 
have  come  r<>  Movie  Classic  as  their  friend,  and  have 

cried  our  their  sense  of  the  injustice  of  such  persecution  in 
almost  the  same  words: 

"/  am  so  unimportant.  I  ask  nothing  except  to  be  allowed 
to  earn  my  living  in  peace  and  quiet.  I  don't  know  how  to 
deal  with  such  people — they  frighten  me.  If  they  would  only 
leave  me  alone  ..." 

As  long  ago  as  last  autumn,  Josephine  Dillon  Gable  told 
me  of  the  persecution  she  was  enduring.  She  was  desperate 
to  find  a  way  to  stop  it.  She  wondered  if  a  story  of  Clark 
Gable's  fight  for  fame,  during  the  time  they  were  married, 
would  not  satisfy  the  curiosity  about  their  life  together. 
She  told  me  this  stop,-,  and  it  was  published  in  the  De- 
cember, 1931,  issue  of  Movie  Classic.  But  its  appearance 
only  added  fuel  to  the  fire.  If  she  had  given  a  story  to 
Movie  Classic,  why  couldn't  she  give  one  to  them?  They 
could  not  understand  her  reticence,  did  not  want  to 
understand  it. 

Neither  of  these  women  has  any  desire  to  capitalize  on 
the  sudden  rise  to  fame  of  her  ex-mate,  or  on  the  name  she 
has  a  legal  right  to  bear.  And  neither  has  any  desire  to 
harm,  by  any  unwise  word  or  by  any  statement  to  an 
irresponsible  reporter,  the  men  whom  they  once  loved  and 
married.  As  a  consequence,  they  have  been  subjected  to 
insults,  bullying,  threats  and  actual  reprisals.  They  have 
been  forced  to  wonder  if  they  could  trust  even  their 
friends.    These  ex-wives  have  had  to  ask  tor  protection ! 

Clark  Gable  had  lived  in  Los  Angeles 
for  seven  years  of  struggle  before  he  sud- 
denly found  fame.  Every  shabby  side  street 
in  that  part  of  Hollywood  known  as  "below 
the  Boulevard"  has  just  such  handsome, 
hopeful  and  often  hungry  actors  who — once 
m  a  w  hile  —leave  their  unpretentious  bunga- 
lows in  make-up  and  rented  tuxedos  to  play 
a  bit  in  a  society  scene.  Nobody  knows  their 
names,  nobody  knows  how  they  live.  A  few 
gas  station  employees  and  garage  mechanics 
(pals  of  his)  knew  of  Gable's  hopes  and  fears, 
his  habits  and  his  history — and  they  were 
the  only  ones.  Except — the  woman  w  ho  w  as 
his  wife  for  six  of  those  years  of  struggle. 

So  the  bloodhounds  of  the  yellow  press 
tracked  Josephine  Dillon  Gable  down  to  the 
humble  little  backyard  house  she  had  rented, 
in  1  he  shadow  ot  Hollywood's  own  "Grand 
Motel,"  the  Roosevelt.  Mere  she  earned  a

He'd  Rather  Die 
an  Eat  Meat 


George  Arliss  said  that  twenty  years  ago — when 
a  doctor  told  him  he  couldn't  live  without  it — 
and  his  statement  still  holds  good.  In  protest 
against  the  brutal  trapping  and  slaughter  of  help- 
ess  animals,  he  gets  along — very  well,  thank 
you! — as  a  Vegetarian 

By     GLADYS     HALL 


W 


Twenty  years  ago,  on  a  train  trip  across  the 
prairies,  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Arliss  saw  cattle 
dying  by  the  wholesale,  victims  of  human 
brutality.  From  that  day  hence,  they  never 
touched  meat  again.  And  they  haven't 
missed  it 


26 


E  SHOULD  not  kill !"  says  George  Arliss. 

"We  have  no  right  to  kill  to  eat.   We  have 

no  right  to  kill  animals  for  our  own  benefit." 

Thus    speaks    "The    Man    Who    Played 

God."     He  would  not  kill — or  have  anyone  else  kill — in 

order   to   clothe  himself   (or   his   wife)    with   furs   ripped 

from  the  twisted  bodies  of  animals  trapped  for  the 

purpose.    Nor  would  he  countenance,  if  he  could  help 

it,   the  wearing  of  feathers   torn   from   the   bleeding 

breasts  of  birds. 

He  feels  that  no  woman  would  be  a  party  to  the 
trapping  of  wild  animals  if  she  could  once  hear  the 
piteous  moans  of  the  trapped  creatures  as  they  cry 
out  their  pain  to  the  unheeding  winds.  He  could  not 
live  happily  with  himself  if  he  ate  meat,  remembering, 
as  he  does,  the  agonized  eyes  of  cattle  as  they  stand 
in  the  blood  of  those  who  preceded  them  and  await  their 
turn  to  die  at  the  hands  of  the  slaughterer.  He  could 
not,  and  he  does  not,  subsist  in  any  way  upon  the 
dead  bodies  of  any  creatures  that  have  walked  the 
earth. 

More  than  twenty  years  ago,  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Arliss 
were  coming  West  by  train.  With,  I  believe,  the  late 
great  Minnie  Maddern  Fiske,  herself  an  ardent  mem- 
ber of  the  various  Humane  and  Anti-Vivisection 
Societies.  Enroute,  they  noted  the  herds  of  cattle 
along  the  snow-swept  plains,  some  of  the  animals 
nothing  but  racks  of  protruding  bones,  many  of  them 
carcasses  left  there  to  rot,  grim  sacrifices  on  an  altar 
more  bloody  than  that  of  Baal.  The  cattle-men,  it 
appeared,  found  it  cheaper  to  allow  the  animals  to 
freeze  and  to  starve  than  to  house  and  feed  them 
during  the  severe  winter.  Kindliness — humanity — 
compassion — what  had  these  benevolent  terms  to  do 
with  animals? 

Eat  Meat?     Never  again! 

MR.  AND  MRS.  ARLISS  looked  on  these 
dumb,  unburied  dead  and,  for  the  first 
time,  the  suffering  of  these  "lesser  brethren" 
came  sharply  home  to  them.    As  sharp  as  the

Divorce  of  Ann  Harding 
and  Harry  Bannister 
Stuns  Movie  Colony 


Union  Had  Been  Called     Hap- 
piest Marriage  In  Hollywood 

—Couple  s    Sudden    Decision 
Totally    Unexpected    Even     By 
Friends 

By  LOUISE    SYKES 


.-1  uitc  y 
Ann  Harding  has  suddenly  become  "a 
woman  of  mystery"  to  Hollywood,  which 
never      expected     her     to     be     divorced 

WHEN  Ann  Harding  and  Harry- 
Bannister  announced  that 
they  were  parting,  Hollywood  was 
stunned.  This  was  one  "happy  movie 
marriage"  that  even  Holly-wood  be- 
lieved in.  Everyone  in  town  studied 
the  notes  the  couple  sent  to  the 
press,  tried  to  "read  between  the 
lines,"  to  find  the  real  reasons  for  the 
divorce. 

Ann  wrote  that  because  Harry, 
submerging  his  own  career  to  hers, 
had  gradually  become  known  as 
"Mr.  Ann  Harding,"  they  were 
divorcing  "before  this  unfortunate 
situation  has  a  chance  to  destrov  the 
love  and  respect  we  have  for  each 
other."  Harry  wrote  that  he  had  had 
Ann's  "love  and  respect  and  devo- 
tion" during  the  five  and  a  half  years 
of  their  marriage,  and  to  preserve 
this,  they  were  taking  "the  apparent- 
ly drastic  course"  of  divorce. 

Ever  since  their  arrival  in  Holly- 


wood three  years  ago,  these  two  have 
been  exceptions  to  the  Hollywood 
rules  of  scandal,  divorce  and  marital 
unhappmess.  Writers  rapturously- 
reported  Ann's  praises  of  domestic 
life,  her  love  for  her  husband  and 
child.  Photographers  pictured  her 
with  her  little  girl  in  her  arms,  pic- 
tured Ann  and  Harry 
much  together.  People 
beamed  approvingly, 
"This  is  one  Holly- 
wood marriage  that  is 
different." 

\\  omen's  clubs, 
very  particular  whom 
they  invite  to  speak 
to  them,  sought  out 
Ann  Harding  continu- 
ally— as  the  one  ac- 
tress they  could  ad- 
mire  with  clear 
consciences.  Perhaps 
no  other  part  of  the 
public,  except  their 
personal  friends, 
suffered  the  shock  of 
dismay  of  these 
women's  clubs  when 
the  divorce  plans  were 
released.  Their  last 
Hollywood  illusion 
had  been  taken  from 
them — this  seemed  to  be  their  atti- 
tude. Everywhere  a  writer  goes 
in  Hollywood  these  days,  he  is  be- 
sieged with  questions.  "What's  the 
lowdown  on  the  Harding-Bannister 
divorcer"  Players  talk  about  little 
else  over  lunch  tables.  Ann's  studio, 
RKO,  is  still  slightly  dazed.  They 
had  no  warning  of  the  divorce  plans. 
The  publicity-  department  bewails  the 


fact  that  they  didn't  have  a  chance 
to  break  the  news  "more  tactfully." 
Ann  Harding  is  bearing  herself 
through  these  trying  days  like  the 
soldier's  daughter  she  is.  Self-disci- 
pline carries  her  to  work  every  morn- 
ing, head  high.  She  steadfastly  refuses 
to  add  anything  to  the  statements  she 


A  typical  picture  of  Ann  Harding,  Harry  Bannister 
and  their  daughter,  Jane — "one  happy  family,"  now 
broken  apart  by  divorce.    Ann  will  have  custody  of  Jane 


and  Harry  issued.  Ann  has  made 
no  plans.  Harry,  of  course,  is  going 
back  to  Broadway. 

All  kinds  of  theories  have  been 
advanced  byr  Holly/wood,  explaining 
the  sudden  break-up  of  their  marri- 
age. The  only  theory  that  seems  to 
be  ignored  is  that  the  simple  explana- 
tions that  Ann  and  Harry  themselves 
offered  might  possibly'  be  true.

RENEE  ADOREE  has  left  the

AlLEEN    PRINGLE    SEEKS    FREEDOM 

By  Mexican  Mail-Order  Divorce 

After  Eight  Years  of  Separation/  Actress  Says 

Final  Farewell  To  Charles  Pringle — Denies  She 

Plans  To  Marry  Matt  Moore 

By  DOROTHY  DONNELL 


AILEEN  PRINGLE,  after  eight 
/\  years  of  separation,  has  sud- 
denly sued  her  husband,  Charles 
Pringle,  for  divorce.  She  has  used 
the  Mexican  "mail-order"  method — 
also  favored  by  Nancy  Carroll,  when 
she  divorced  John  Kirkland. 

Eigbteen  years  ago,  Aileen  wagered 
that  she  could  make  a  handsome 
young  Englishman  propose  to  her  in 
two  weeks'  time.  She  won  the  wager 
and  the  Englishman  Charles  Prin- 
gle, son  ot  Sir  John  Pringle,  chief 
privy  counselor  of  Jamaica,  hirst 
the  War  separated  them,  then  motion 
pictures,  which  her  husband  detested. 
She  has  not  even  seen  him  since  1925, 
when  he  made  her  a  two-week  visit  in 


When  the  news  broke  that  Aileen 
Pringle  was  getting  a  divorce, 
Hollywood  wondered  if  she  and 
Matt  Moore  (right)  weren't  plotting 
a  wedding.  They  have  been  pals  for 
twelve  years,  and  there  is  something 
very  domestic  about  the  way  Matt 
makes  himself  at  home  at  Aileen's 
house,  say  friends

Hollywood  and  refused  to  let 
her  entertain  for  him  or  to  go 
to  parties  for  fear  of  meeting 
some  of  the  movie  stars  he 
disliked  so  much. 

Aileen  explains  about  her 
divorce  in  the  most  Pringhsh 
way  possible. 

"It    was    this    way,"    says 
she.    "My  husband  and  I  had 
a  sort  of  'gentlemen's  agree- 
ment'   that    if   either   of   us 
wanted    to    marry    someone 
else,   rhe  other  would  get   a 
divorce — but   as   long   as   we 
weren't  in  love  with  anyone, 
we    would    stay    married.      I 
rather  liked  the  idea  of  being 
a    married   woman    in 
Hollywood — it   was   a 
sort     of     anchor     to 
windward,  you  know. 
And     Charles     didn't 
mind    having    an    ab- 
sentee  wife.     So   we   drifted 
along  tor  years  and  years  and 
years. 

"Then,    not    long    ago,    he 
wrote  to  tell  me  that  he  did 
want  to  marry  someone  else. 
I    believe    that's    broken    off 
now,  but  at  the  moment  he 
lound  me  a  decided  obstacle 
to     his     happiness.      So,     of 
course,  I  promised  I'd  get  a 
divorce.    Only — you  know  I 
have  a  wretched  memory' — I 
kept     forgerting     about     it. 
I'd  remember  it  at 
night,  just  as  I  was 
dropping      off      to 
sleep,  but  the  next 
day    it    would    slip 
my  mind  again.     I 
made        memoran- 
dums,'Get  a  divorce 
to-day,"    and    lost 
^k  them.    It  was  a  per- 

^^^         feet  shame,  the  way 
A        I  neglected  that  di- 
■     jm     vorce! 

^m  "You     see,     the 

main     reason     I'd 
never    bothered    to 


Aileen  explains  that  she  had  promised  her  hus- 
band to  get  a  divorce,  but  kept  "forgetting"  about 
it — until  she  read  about  Mexican  divorces 


get  unmarried  was  all  the  trouble  it 
took — and  the  cold-bloodedness  of 
'telling  the  judge,'  and  all  that. 
Then,  fortunately,  I  read  about  the 
new  mail-order  divorces  one  can  get 
in  Mexico,  without  moving  a  step  out 
of  one's  comfortable  home,  or  waiting 
more  than  a  few  days  for  it.  I  called 
up  my  lawyer  and  asked  him  if  they 
were  really  all  right.  'Just  as  good  as 
a  Reno  or  Pans  divorce,  so  long  as 
both  parties  want  them.'  So  he  sent 
me  the  papers,  I  mailed  them  to  Mr. 
Pringle,  we  both  signed  and  they're 
off  to  Mexico  now.  And  in  a  few  days, 
when  the  postman  brings  the  mail, 
I'll  have  my  divorce." 

Aileen  denies  that  she  and  Matt 
Moore  are  going  to  be  married.  Matt 
lives  a  block  or  two  away,  and  may  be 
found  at  the  Pringle  home  almost  any 
evening,  "when  neither  of  us  has  any- 
thing really  amusing  to  do,"  says 
Aileen,   with    devastating    frankness. 

"I've  known  Matt  for  twelve 
years,"  she  explains.  "We're  such  old 
friends  that  I  can  call  on  him  when  I 
haven't  any  other  escort,  and  he  can 
dine  at  my  house  when  his  cook  is 
out.      We're  just  good  pals."

Was  Greta  Nissen  Wed  Twice 
To  Weldon  Heyburn? 

Hollywood   Believes   Norwegian   Beauty   and   Alabama   Athlete   Eloped   Three 
Months  Before  Recent  Marriage — Renting  Agent  Had  Sought  House  For  Them 


WAS  the  marriage  of  Greta 
Nissen  and  Weldon  Hey- 
burn at  Tia  Juana,  Mexico,  on  March 
30  the  second  wedding  ceremony  for 
this  couple?  Hollywood  believed 
them  secretly  married  some  three 
months  before  the  publicity  cere- 
mony. And  Hollywood's  belief  was 
based  on  some  fairly  logical  deduc- 
tions. 

The  "secret  marriage"  rumors 
started  when  a  renting  agent,  rep- 
resenting ''.Mr.  and  Mrs.  Weldon

The  activities  of  this  agent  focused 
the  spotlight  on  the  couple  as  the 
latest  who  might  have  "put  over"  an 
elopement.  Investigation  revealed 
other  circumstantial  evidence.

don were  vacationing  111  Agua  Cali- 
ente  at  the  same  time.  I  hen,  shortly

at  a  new  portrait  of  (iota.  A  pub- 
licity man,  standing  near  him,  said 
something  to  the  effect  that  she  was

"She  certainly  is  a  wonderful  girl," 
I!  >  1 1  rn  agreed,  still  in  his  reverie. 
"We  were  married  a  lew  days  ago." 

"'What!  \\  hen?  \\  lien?"  demanded 
the  startled  publicity  man.  Heyburn 
gulped,  said  something  about  "jok- 
ing," and  rushed  from  the  room.  I  he 
publicity  man,  however,  was  nol 
satisfied.  He  had  another  member  of 
the  staff  telephone  Greta's  apart- 
ment and  ask  lor  "Mrs.  Heyburn."

Claire  Windsor  Will  Fight 
$100,000  "Love  Thief"  Suit 

Former  Screen  Favorite  Does  Not  Intend  To  Settle  Alienation-of-Affections 
Case   Out   Of   Court — Hollywood   Friends   Rush   To   Actress'  Defense 


BY  JOAN  DlCKEy 

y^-LAIRE  WINDSOR, 
V_>  glamourous  blonde 
star  of  silent-picture  fame, 
has  just  been  sued  for 
$100,000  by  one  Mrs. 
Marion  Read,  who  alleges 
that  Claire  alienated  the 
affections  of  the  plaintiff's 
husband,  Alfred  C.  Read, 
Jr.,  29-year-old  stock 
broker.  And  one  hundred 
and  forty  movie  celebrities 
have  come  forward  to  offer 
aid  to  Claire  as  character 
witnesses. 

"  I  ime  after  tune,  my 
friends  have  been  unjustly 
accused,  and  1  suppose  it's 
my  turn  now,"  says  Claire, 
who  is  currently  displaying 
her  blondeness  opposite  Al 
Jolson  in  "Wunder  Bar" 
on  the  Los  Angeles  stage. 
"But  when  your  life  is  an 
open  book,  a  thing  so  ut- 
terly absurd  as  this  hurts. 
Why,  I  have  seen  Mr. 
Read  only  five  or  six  times 
in  my  life!" 

Claire  says  she  is  "going  to  fight 
this  thing  to  a  finish,  because  it's  high 
time  to  stop  this  abuse  of  people  in 
the  public  eye."  She,  herself,  has 
been  in  the  public  eye  at  least  a  dozen 
years — and  this  is  the  first  love  law- 
suit that  has  ever  been  brought 
against  her.  Naturally,  however, 
there  have  been  romance 
rumors  connected  wit' 
her  name. 

Hollywood     remem- 
bers the  hours  that 
Buddy     Rogers,     in 
his   moon-calf  days, 
used     to     spend     at 
Claire's  little  bun-       1 
galow — and    the    in- 
terviews   he    used    to 
give     out     about     his

was  the  husband  of  another  screen 
blonde,  Constance  Bennett.  She  was 
aboard  the  Plant  yacht  when  it 
collided  with  another  ship,  and  was 
rescued.  She  first  told  rescuers  she 
was  "Mrs.  John  Smith,"  but  later  ad- 
mitted her  identity,  denying  any 
wedding  plans,  however. 

Visiting  artists  and  critics  used  to 
pick  out  Claire  Windsor  as  "the  most 
beautiful  screen  star."  She  still  is 
radiantly  lovely.  It  is  a  remarkable 
tribute  to  her  that  in  twelve  years  in 
the  full  glare  of  the  spotlight,  there  is 
such  a  small  file  of  sensational  news- 
paper clippings  about  her. 

"It  is  my  experience,"  says  Oscar 
Cummins,  Hollywood  lawyer,  "that 
sooner  or  later  every  beautiful  young 
actress  is  exposed  to  the  dangers  of 
such  a  lawsuit  as  has  been  brought 
against  Claire 
Windsor,  no 
matter  how 
blamelessly  she 
lives." 

Claire  intends 
to  fight  to 
lessen  that 
danger! 

Besides  testi- 
fying in  the  pre- 
sent suit — if  it 
ever  comes  to 
trial  —  Clai  re 
may  have  to  tes- 
tify in  the  suit 
recently  brought 
against  Philip 
Plant  by  the 
captain  of  the 
boat  which  was 
damaged  when 
Philip's  yacht  collided  with  it.

sued  for  alienation  of  affections  is 
Marlene  Dietrich  who  also  said  she 
would  "fight  to  the  finish"  the  allega-

Mrs.  von  Sternberg  has  just  dropped 
her  suit,  before  it  could  come  to 
trial.  Marlene  had  her  husband, 
Rudolph  Sieber,  backing  her  fight. 
Claire  Windsor  has  a  goodly  portion 
of  Hollywood  backing  her  fight.

Confessions 

of  a 

Gigolo 


George  Raft,  the  most  talked-about  actor  in 
Hollywood  and  the  sensation  of  Dancers 
in  the  Dark  and  Scarface,  will  startle  you 
as  Valentino  did.  And  there's  a  reason. 
Twelve  years  ago,  he  and  Rudy  were  dancing 
for  profit  in  the  same  New  York  cafe,  with 
women  hunting  for  romance! 

By 
ROBERT  DONALDSON 


THE  shade  of  The  Sheik  has  reached  from  the 
grave  to  bring  movie  fame  to  slick,  varnish- 
haired  George  Raft — not  as  a  Latin  lover,  but  as 
a  gangster.  Nor  is  it  the  shade  of  Valentino  at 
the  height  of  his  picture  fame,  but  of  Valentino,  the 
gigolo.  George  Raft  and  Valentino  were  gigolos  to- 
gether in  New  York  in  the  days  before  Rudy  was  dis- 
covered and  won  fame  in  "The  Four  Horsemen." 

Nearly  thirteen  years  ago,  that  was.  Valentino's  star  has 
risen  and  tragically  fallen  since  then.  George  Raft's  is  just 
rising.  Strangely  enough,  the  two  look  amazingly  alike, 
although  Ratt  in  no  way  capitalized  on  this  in  getting  into 
pictures.  The  principal  difference  is  that  Valentino  was  some- 
what taller. 

Suave  and  sieek,  Raft  plays  the  bodyguard  of  that  bloody 
character,  Scarface,  in  the  embattled  Hughes  picture  of  the 
same  name.  His  death  scene  is  one  of  the  finest  pieces  of 
celluloid  acting  Hollywood  has  ever  witnessed. 

Oddly  enough,  people  who  have  known  George  in  New 
York  whisper  that  at  one  time  he  played  this  role  of  body- 
guard to  a  famous  gangster  in  real  life,  and  was  seen  about 
Broadway  resorts,  keeping  always  as  close  to  him  as  his  own 
shadow. 

As  the  dapper  and  deadly  underworld  sheik  in  "Dancers  in 
the  Dark,"  he  came  close  to  stealing  the  picture  from  Miriam 
Hopkins  and  Jack  Oakie.  People  left  the  theatre  asking  each 
other  who  he  was.  He  has  also  appeared  in  "Quick  Millions" 
and  "Hush  Money,"  the  latter  being  his  first  film. 

Raft  was  born  in  New  York  City,  on  41st  Street  between 

Ninth    and   Tenth    Avenues.     His   mother   was    Italian,    his 

lather  German.    When  in  his  teens,  he  became  a  professional 

boxer,  and  fought  fur  two  years  in  the  flyweight  class,  at  112

of  Wales!  His  gigolo  days  are  over  now — and  he's  on

CHARLIE 
CHAPLIN  is  re - 
turning  to 
Hollywood 
about  the  first  of  June, 
a  n  d —  ''It's  about 
time!''  exclaim  his 
friends,  who  are  often 
his  severest  critics. 
"The  king  of  the  movies 
has  been  playing 
around  with  European 
nobility  so  long  that 
people  are  forgetting 
about  him.  He  has  be- 
come a  playboy,  a  gad- 
about. But  he'd  better 
show  up  pretty  soon 
where  he  works,  or  he 
won't  be  king  much 
longer.  He'll  be  a  back 
number." 

Chaplin  went  abroad 
for  four  months  and 
he  has  stayed   a  full 
fourteen.       He    has 
been    feted    like    a 
king.       No     doubt 
about  that.    He  has 
been  acclaimed  and 
applauded    by    the 
populace   of  London, 
Paris,   Berlin    and 
points    between,    while 
Mussolini-like  he  has 
bowed     to    the    mob    from 
second-story  balconies. 
He  has  skied  about 
St.     Moritz     and     has 
frolicked  in  the  sunny 
waters  of  Nice,  Monte 
Carlo,   Biarritz    and 
their  environs. 

Women  have  figured  in  his  life  abroad — and  how!  And 
he  has  not  only  talked  with  kings  of  the  royal  blood, but 
has  also  gone  promenading  with  them.  He  has  dallied 
with  prime  ministers,  lords  and  their  ladies,  and  vis- 
counts and  viscountesses,  and  even  tete-a-teted  with 
Mahatma  Gandhi.  He  has  shot  the  works  in  hobnobbing 
with  the  idle  rich,  the  bon  tons  and  the  nabobs. 

A  great  triumph,   all   this  has   been   for  the   moody, 
baggy-pantsed  little  laugh-and-tear-maker,  who,  sixteen

native  heath.  His 
greatest  triumph,  in-

ing the  one  that  he  en- 
joyed on  his  previous 
{rip  abroad  ten  years 
ago!  However,  what  of 
it?  Has  it  been  worth 
all  the  time  he  has 
given   to   it? 

There  won't  be  any 
rose-strewn  pathways 
to  greet  his  return  to 
filmdom.  The  fatted 
calf  will  not  be  slaught- 
ered to  make  a  holiday 
for  the  returning  prodi- 
gal. The  film  colony — 
that  is,  the  vast  new 
film  colony  brought  in 
by  the  talkies  —  will 
probably  just  passingly 
say:  "Oh  yes,  Chaplin's 
back,"  and  then  turn 
to  other  and  more  press- 
ing affairs. 


Above,    Chaplin

Will  he  have  to  talk  now? 


"He'll  Have  to  Talk,  or  Else" 

IT  seems  amazing,  but  the  myth 
of  the  Chaplin  greatness,  so 
far  as  Hollywood  is  concerned,  has 
blown  up  higher  than  a  kite  in  the 
past  twelve  months.  One  can 
scarcely  stir  up  interest  in  his  fame 
or  his  fate  among  the  present  popu- 
lation. Most  of  the  new  inhabit- 
ants paid  scant  attention  to  the 
screen  in  the  old  days.  The  fact 
that  the  silent  films  had  kings  and 
queens,  and  that  they  were  really 
celebrated,  means  nothing.  Motion 
picture  history  began,  so  far  as  they 
can  see,  when 


Appropriately  enough, 
one  of  the  places  Chaplin 
visited  was  the  land  of

Vflfll 


When  Chaplin  visited  Berlin,  this  is  how  the  enthusiastic  populace  "mobbed"  him. 

You'll  find  him  in  the  center,  white-haired,  with  derby  in  the  air.    And  only  a  year 

ago,  even  Hollywood  was  almost  as  excited  about  him  as  this!    Right,  as  he  looked 

during  one  of  his  few  quiet  moments  in  Paris

ing  a  trek  to  the  comedian's  quaint  red-brick  studio  on  La  Brea  Avenue, 
for  news  about  him.  Even  when  he  was  away,  in  former  days,  there  was 
a  perpetual  parade  of  writers  to  the  studio.  They  banged  the  doors  in 
the  hope  of  getting  a  glimpse  of  the  place  where  Charlie  worked,  or 
touching  his  shoes  or  seeing  his  tattered  comedy  wardrobe,  or  the  cane 
that  he  carried  so  swaggeringly.  "Mecca,"  the  Chaplin  studio  was  called 
in  the  old  days,  and  everybody  sought  to  go  there  sometime  to  cleanse 
his  soul  in  the  place  where  screen  art  truly  flourished. 

"Just  a  back  number" —  that's  the  insistent  refrain.  "Charlie  can't 
go  on  making  silent  pictures.  He'll  never  make  a  go  of  a  second  one.  The 
novelty  of  'City  Lights'  put  it  over,  but  a  fat  chance  he'll  have  to  follow 
that  up!" 

The  irony  is  that  the  last  laugh  may  be  Charlie's.  After  all,  he  is 
laughing  now  financially  at  the  crazy,  topsy-turvy  movie  city.  The  only 
picture  that  has  made  any  really  big  money  in  many  moons  is  "City 
Lights,"  and  that's  because  of  its  international  distribution. 

The  returns  on  "City  Lights"  will  be  between  three  and  four  million 
dollars.-  If  "Cimarron,"  the  biggest  talker  of  the  past  year,  gathers  in 
two  million  dollars,  it  will  be  a  wonder.  Chaplin,  grossed  approximately 
half  that  amount  on  the  New  York  and  London  runs  of  his  picture  alone, 
and  there's  no  end  to  what  he  has  made  elsewhere. 

I  he  comedian  will  certainly  be  personally  richer  by  more  than  a  million 
dollars  as  a  result  of  his  exploit  in  the  silents,  exclusive  of  what  may  be 
deducted  for  income  tax,  and  go  for  alimony,  if  that  is  to  be  charged  off. 

The  Chaplin  fame  registers  in  all  foreign  countries.  He  set  forth  on  his 
tour  in  February,  1931,  sailing  on  the  Mauritania.  He  was  lionized  in 
England,  sat  at  the  same  table  with  the  Prince  of  Wales  and  the  Duchess 
of  Sutherland,  week-ended  with  Lord  and  Lady  Astor  at  their  country 
place  in  Plymouth,  was  guest  of  the  Duke  of  West  minister  tor  boar- 
hunting  in  Normandy,  had  tea  with  Lloyd  George  in  the  House  of  Com-

Does  a 

Mother-Complex 

Threaten  Swanson  Career? 


G' 


LORIA 

Swan- 
son  will 
never 
have  a  baby!" 

Wallace  Beery 
told  me  this  dur- 
ing a  heart-to- 
heart  talk,  years 
ago.  He  spoke 
wistfully,  for  he 
had  recently  di- 
vorced the  bud- 
ding star  and  one 
of  his  grounds  — 
along  with  "de- 
sertion" —  had 
been  that  his  wife 
did  not  wantchil- 
dren. 

Barely  twenty, 
athirst  for  an  ex- 
citing life  and 
burning  with  a 
determination'  to 
win  film  fame, 
Gloria  felt  no 
urge  for  mother- 
hood then.  But 
now,  twelve  years 
later,  a  mother- 
complex  is 
threatening 
Gloria  Swanson' s 
career! 

"I  am  going  to  have  another  baby!" 
she  cried  excitedly  to  the  London  press 
last  February.    "Isn't  it  wonderful?" 

It  was  the  cry  of  a  woman  who  can- 
not imagine  a  greater  thrill  than 
motherhood. 

She  has  developed  a  veritable  pas- 
sion for  children  and  has  expressed  a 
desire  for  a  large  family.  The  ques- 
tion arises:  Does  this  desire  mean  that 
Gloria  now  would  rather  be  a  mother 
than  a  screen  star?  Her  friends  think 
it  does — and  would  not  be  surprised  if 
Gloria  should  soon  leave  the  screen. 
Particularly  since  the  baby  born  to  her  and  Michael 
Farmer  in  London  on  April  5  was  a  girl — when  she  had 
been  hoping  for  a  boy,  "so  I  could  name  it  Michael"! 

During  the  intervening  years  since  she  and  Wallace 
Beery  went  their  separate  ways,  Gloria  has  touched  every 
point  in  a  woman's  experience.  She  has  won 
world  fame  such  as  few  other  women  have  at- 
tained.   She  has  triumphed  spectacularly — and 

44 


I 


she  has  been  near  failure.  She 
has  made  fortunes — and  she 
has  been  in  debt  almost  a  mil- 
lion dollars.  She  has  married 
and  been  divorced,  she  has 
had  a  daughter  and  has 
adopted  a  son.  Yet,  just  be- 
fore she  left  for  Europe  in 
December  with  her  new  hus- 
band, Michael  Farmer,  Gloria 
told  a  friend  that  no  fame  or 
fortune  or  any  other  experi- 
ence had  ever  given  her  the 
sheer  joy  that  she  felt  when 
she  knew  she  was  to  have  an- 
other baby.  She  had  never 
longed  for  anything  more. 

Pities  Childless  Women 

AM  thrilled  to  tears," 
she  said,  "and  I  find 
myself  looking  at  other  wom- 
en who  have  not  known 
motherhood,  with  a  feeling  of 
pity.  I  would  gladly  sacrifice 
everything  I  have  ever  gained, 
rather  than  relinquish  this 
precious  hope." 

Though  the  coming  baby 
was  a  secret  that  Hollywood 
wasn't  sure  it  knew,  she 
talked  freely  about  it  to  in- 
timate friends.  In- 
deed, she  would 
scarcely  talk  about 
anything  else.  She 
urged  her  bachelor- 
girl  acquaintances 
to  marry  as  quickly 
as  possible  in  order 
to  share  her  joy  in 
bringing  a  child  in- 
to the  world.  "If 
you  don't  hurry 
up,"  she  warned 
them,  as  of  the 
most  terrible 
tragedy  conceiv- 
able, "it  may  be  too 
late  for  you  to  have  any  children  of  your  own  at  all!" 

Despite  four  marriages  and  three  divorces  before  her 
thirty-second  birthday  (which,  by  the  way,  she  cele- 
brated on  March  27  in  Paris),  Gloria  firmly  believes  in 
marriage,  believes  it  should  be  the  foundation  of  every 

woman's  life. 
(Continued  on 


Gloria,  thrilled  by  new  mother- 
hood, is  in  a  mood  to  leave  the 
screen  and  devote  her  life  to  her 
children,  say  her  friends — and 
point  to  evidence  supporting 
their  claim!

her  own  story  of  how  she  got  started!

Judge 


By     DORIS     JANEWAY 


HERE  you  have  Arline 
Judge :  Five-feet-nothing-at-all,  nineteen  years 
old,  curves  like  the  bronze  statuette  on  a  lamp, 
skin  the  color  of  pale  molasses,  a  saucy  haircut, 
a  sensuous,  throbbing  little  voice  and  the  trademark  of 
her  lipstick  on  the  tips  of  her  cigarettes.  She  looks  like 
Peter  Pan  with  sex-appeal.  She  is,  to  put  it  mildly,  hot-cha 
(as  Jimmy  Durante  and  the  college  boys  would  say;.  And 
maybe  you  think  RKO  isn't  grooming  her  for  stardom! 

Not  since  Sue  Carol  has  any  movie  girl  come  along  to 
play  so  much  havoc  in  undergraduate  circles,  as  Arline. 
They  write  her:  "You're  a  hon-ey,  honey,"  and,  "when  I 
step  out  to  Hollywood,  how  about  stepping  out  to  the 
Cocoanut  Grove  with  me?"  That  Arline,  in  private  life, 
is  very  much  Mrs.  Wesley  Ruggles  has  made  little  or  no 
difference  in  the  date  bids.  But  then,  "College  boys  never 
were  strong  on  reading  marriage  certificates."  She  has  a 
million  bids,  a  million  of  'em. 


She's  used  to  being  the  college 
boys'  delight.  Long  before  the  movies  ever  happened  to 
her  in  "Are  These  Our  Children?",  she  was  causing  her 
own  parents  plenty  of  excitement  in  wondering,  "Is  This 
Our  Child?"  She  had  her  first  collegiate  date  at  the  ad- 
vanced age  of  fifteen.  There  was  a  chaperon,  of  course, 
supplied  by  the  polite  girls'  school  she  attended.  And  from 
then  on,  her  life  was  a  gay  round  of  proms  and  hops  and — 
once  in  a  while — near-romance. 

"  I  guess  I  was  lucky,"  says  Arline  from  under  the  brim 
of  a  black  hat  that  almost  completely  obscures  one  brown 
eye,  leaving  only  a  single  orb  to  observe  me  and  the 
RKO  lunchroom  activities.  "I  'prommed'  and  'hopped' 
it  from  Annapolis  to  West  Point  without  ever  running  into 
the  popular  idea  of  the  gin-soaked  collegian.  Most  of  the 
boys  I  met  were  just  right — not  too  nice,  and  not  too 
naughty-  I  can't  get  cynical  about  'em."

TWENTY- NINE— nearing  thirty! 
Is  that  an  age  to  dread?  The 
screen  stars  say  no !  They  keep  youth- 
ful loveliness  through  the  years. 

"I'm  29,"  says  Anita  Stewart, 
"but  I  don't  dread  my  next  birth- 
day a  bit!  Nowadays  it's  possible 
for  a  woman  to  grow  even  more 
charming  as  the  years  go  by — if  she 
is  willing  to  take  sensible  care  of 
her  complexion!" 

"I'm  29,"  says  Esther  Ralston. 
"No  one  need  fear  birthdays.  We 
on  the  screen,  of  course,  must  keep 
youthful  charm  and  a  young-look- 
ing skin  is  absolutely  necessary!" 

How,  you  wonder,  do  these  beau-

Roland  Young 

Loves 
Two 
Women 

And   Tells   Why 

By  Hale  horton 

THIS  is  the  story  of  the  world's  most 
unusual  triangle  the  story  of  an  ac- 
tor who  actually  loves  his  mother-in- 
law.  A  mother-in-law,  especially  in 
Hollywood,  is  usually  either  a  joke  or  a  Tar- 
tar. Anyway,  she  isn't  supposed  to  be  any- 
thing human.  When  a  marriage  hits  the 
rocks,  she  usually  gets  the  blame.  When  the 
young  couple  are  extra  happy,  she  doesn't  get 
any  of  the  credit.  She's  something  to  be  put 
up  with,  not  esteemed.  But  here's  the  excep- 
tion you've  always  wanted  to  meet.  And  found 
right  in  the  wilds  of  Hollywood,  at  that! 

I  lie  mother-in-law 
is  Clare  K  u  m  m  e  r , 
ch  a  rm  1  n  g  worn  an  . 
m  o  t  h  e  r  a  n  d  p  1  a  y  - 
w  right—  vv  h  i  1  e  t  li  e 
ni  an  is  none  other 
than  Roland  \  oung, 
renowned  stage  and 
screen  actor,  whimsi- 
cal story-teller,  so- 
phisticated world- 
traveler,  valued  din- 
ner guest,  gold-fish 
fancier  and  possessor 
of  the  world's  most 
fantastic  conglomera- 
tion of  penguins. 

He  not  only  loves 
his  mother-in-law, 
but,  to  quote  the  fel- 
low himself,  "It  it 
weren't  tor  Clare 
Rummer,    my    career 

very  likely  would  never  have  amounted  to  a  damn!" 
Rather  a  definite  statement,  don't  you  think?  But  then 
Roland  Young,  in  spite  of  his  whimsical  nature,  is  a  defi- 
nite sort  of  a  person,  an  Englishman  with  definite  ideas,  a 
man  who  can  make  up  his  mind  in  a  split  second  and  who 
knows  precisely  what  he  wants,  in  either  business  or  pleas- 
ure. ^  oung  admits,  however,  that  he  was  not  so  positive 
a  petson  before  meeting  the  woman  who  was  to  be  his 
mother-in-law.  In  numerous  little  ways,  she  helped  even 
to  build  his  chatacter. 

In  considering  Roland  Young  himself,  first  remember 


*   -

Did  you  ever  hear  of  an  ac- 
tor s  loving  his  mother-in- 
law?  But  Roland  Young, 
pointing  to  Clare  Kummer/ 
famous  playwright,  says  she  s 
different.  They  were  pals  for 
fourteen  years  before  he 
married  her  little  girl,  Mar- 
jorie  (right) — and  Clare 
made  Roland  what  he  is 
to-day! 


that  you've  seen  him  in  a 
dozen  and  a  half  pic- 
tures, notably  in  "The 
Squaw  Man,"  "New 
Moon,"  "Annabelle's  Af- 
fairs," "The  Prodigal," 
"Pagan  Lady,"  "The 
Guardsman,"  "A  Wom- 
an Commands,"  "Lov- 
ers Courageous,"  "One 
Hour  With  You"  and 
"This  Is  the  Night." 
And  furthermore,  you 
were  quietly  enthusiastic 
over  the  whimsical  high 
comedy  so  peculiarly  his. 
I  his  son  of  Keith 
Young,  famous  English 
hospital  architect,  was  born  in  London  on  Novem- 
ber ii,  1SS7,  and  he  has  been  at  peace  with  the 
world  ever  since.  Before  going  to  the  University  of 
London,  he  received  a  preliminary  education  at 
Sherbourne  in  Dorsetshire.  "A  very  old  school," 
says  Roland.  "Alfred  the  Great  went  there,  and 
all  that  sort  of  thing.  The  studies  in  my  particular  school- 
house  were  Thirteenth  Century  monks'  cells,  budt  below 
the  level  of  the  ground.  But,  as  a  matter  of  fact,  this 
monastery  life  wasn't  half-bad,  as  they  served  ale  every 
afternoon.  Although."  he  adds,  "you  couldn't  catch  a 
buzz  on  seventeen  mugs  of  the  stuff." 

Even  though  Roland  was  a  delicate  child,  he  lived  away 

from  home  between  the  ages  of  eight  and  eighteen.    "But 

this  had  its  compensations,"  he  believes.    "My  being  away 

at  boarding  school  thwarted  my  older  brothers  and  sisters

Roland  Young  Loves  Two  Women 
And  Tells  Why 


{Continued  from  page  5 6) 


in  their  great  ambition  to  boss  me  around." 
In  1910  Keith  Young  decided  that  his  son, 
like  himself,  should  become  an  English  hos- 
pital architect;  and  if  not  that,  at  least  a 
diplomat  or  a  banker.  Roland,  however, 
preferred  a  cold  to  any  career  but  acting,  so 
he  caught  one,  and,  indeed,  became  so  ill  he 
was  unable  to  speak.  Sympathetically,  his 
father  quizzed  him  concerning  his  career, 
but  this  parental  sympathy  elicited  nothing 
but  heart-rending  groans.  In  fact,  when  his 
father  mentioned  the  banking  business, 
Roland  emitted  a  whole  series  of  groans  and 
paled  perceptibly.  It  was  only  after  his  fa- 
ther had  finally  said,  "Well,  my  boy,  you 
might  as  well  become  an  actor,"  that  Roland 
gave  out  a  happy  grunt,  and  they  do  say  the 
speed  of  his  recovery  was  miraculous. 

She  Changed  His  Luck 

AFTER  a  year  at  the  Tree  Dramatic 
.  School  in  London  (this  was  after  his 
'Varsity  days),  he  was  given  a  part  in  "bind 
the  Woman."  Then  he  played  stock  in  the 
English  provinces,  returning  to  London  with 
"Improper  Peter."  So  successlul  was  he  in 
this  endeavor  that  he  was  given  a  chance  in 
"Hindle  Wakes,"  with  which  play  he  went 
to  Xew  York,  and  after  which  play  he  was 
dogged  by  a  pack  of  bad  luck,  mitigated 
only  when  he  met  his  future  mother-in-law, 
1  'lare  Kummer. 

\'ju  a  successful  movie  actor,  Roland 
\  oung  owns  a  charming  Beverly  Hills  home 
in  which  he  lives  with  his  mother-in-law, 
his  wife,  Marjorie,  a  Russian  wolf  hound  "of 
the  Romanoff  line,"  and  a  black  alley-cat 
called  "b'nex" — "short  for  unexpected,"  he 
explains.  And  an  unbelievable  collection  of 
penguins.  He  owns  a  penguin  from  every 
port  in  the  world,  penguins  of  all  descrip- 
tions. Penguins  of  ivory,  wood,  gold,  silver 
and  bronze.  Penguins  of  china,  blown-glass 
and  steel.  Penguins  with  their  hats  on,  and 
in  automobiles.  Wood  blocks,  oils  and  wa- 
ter-colors of  penguins.  Families  of  penguins, 
bachelor  penguins  and  young  maiden  pen- 
guins, demurely  blushing.  And  this  in 
spite  of  the  fact  that  Young  is  known  as  a 
gold-fish  fancier  and  insists  that  his  life's 
ambition  is  to  become  a  salmon!  Besides 
the  penguins,  his  hobbies  are  writing  whim- 
sical poems  "not  for  children,"  and  drawing 
caricatures  of  his  friends  and  himself. 

"I  hate  to  think  what  would  have  hap- 
pened to  my  life  if  it  hadn't  been  for  Clare 
Kummer.  She  molded  me  from  a  haphazard 
actor  into  a  successful  man."  (For  it  was 
Clare  Kummer  who  helped  Roland  exploit 
his  flair  for  whimsy  by  weaving  plays  around 
it.)  "Plays,"  he  insists,  "in  which  I  simply 
couldn't  fail! 

His  Wife  Was  Then  Ten 

IT  was  in  1912  that  I  first  made  her  ac- 
quaintance. Just  before  the  closing  of 
'Hindle  Wakes.'  My  wife,  who  was  ten 
years  old  at  the  time,  brought  her  mother 
backstage  and  introduced  us  and  invited  me 
to  visit  her  mother's  apartment.  From  then 
on  a  great  friendship  existed  between  Clare 
and  myself,  and  still  does,  even  though  she 
now  is  my  mother-in-law-.  I  married  her 
daughter  Marjorie  in  1926  (after  a  fourteen- 
year  courtship!).  Incidentally,  during  the 
wedding  ceremony,  which  was  performed  on 
the  vine-covered  back  porch  of  Clare's  sum- 
mer cottage  at  Xarragansett  Bay,  a  grass- 
hopper caused  considerable  confusion  by 
jumping  down  the  front  of  the  blouse  of  one 


of  the  maids-of-honor,  making  it  imperative 
for  her  to  leave  at  once. 

"But  to  get  back  to  Clare:  For  some  time 
alter  the  premature  death  of  'Hindle  Wakes,' 
1  found  myself  at  a  low  ebb.  I  had  rehearsed 
six  months,  worked  ten  days  and  got  paid 
for  five — afterwards  going  with  the  Wash- 
ington players  in  great  affluence  at  twenty 
dollars  a  week.  As  a  matter  of  fact,  it  was 
possible  to  live  on  it  then — and,  what's 
more,  to  drink  on  it,  too.  There  were  plenty 
of  places  to  get  a  good  cocktail  for  fifteen 
cents.   F'ancy  that,  if  you  will! 

"However,  it  was  about  this  time  that 
Clare  gave  me  a  splendid  boost.  In  order 
that  I  might  do  something  worth  while,  this 
dear  woman  wrote  me  a  one-act  play.  It 
was  put  on  at  a  banquet;  and  while  I  went 
up  in  my  lines  pretty  badly,  as  I  recall, 
Clare  was  very  pleasant  about  it. 

"Before  writing  that  play,  my  mother-in- 
law  already  had  composed  two  songs — 
'Dearie'  and  'Egypt' — not  to  mention  an 
enchanting  musical  comedy  called  'Xoah's 
Ark.'  Xo,  let's  see,  that's  not  the  name. 
Ah-h-h,"  he  grunted  after  a  moment  of 
thought,  "now  I  have  it!  It  concerned 
Xoah's  Ark  and  was  called  'Rainy  Day.' 
The  one-act  play  wasn't  musical,  though. 
Just  tropical.  But  it  must  have  been  beauti- 
fully written  for  it  caused  something  very 
charming  to  happen  to  me.  It  was  the  well- 
known  turning  point. 

Again  She  Came  to  Rescue 

OX  the  strength  of  this  play  Arthur 
Hopkins,  the  producer,  called  me  in 
for  a  part  and  inquired  as  to  what  salary  I 
wanted.  I  took  a  deep  breath  and  men- 
tioned a  salary  which,  to  my  ears,  sounded 
most  fantastic.  I  asked  for  a  hundred  dol- 
lars a  week — whereupon  he  suggested  that  I 
leave  the  salary  to  him  until  after  the  show 
opened  in  Xew  Haven.  At  which  time  Ar- 
thur again  called  me  in  and  said  that  he  had 
decided  not  to  give  me  a  hundred  a  week, 
but  a  hundred  and  fifty  instead! 

"Soon  alter  this,  however,  I  again  seemed 
on  the  verge  of  proving  a  bust  as  an  actor, 
and  once  more  my  mother-in-law  came  to 
the  rescue."  This  time  Clare  Kummer  res- 
cued him  with  a  play  rather  aptly  titled 
"The  Rescuing  Angel,"  as  well  as  a  musical 
comedy  called  "Good  Gracious  Annabelle" 
and  such  plays  as  "Rollo's  Wild  Oat,"  "A 
Successful  Calamity"'  and  "Pomeroy's 
Past."  So  it  was  that  Roland  Young  became 
a  definite  success. 

From  the  first  moment  Clare  Kummer  met 
him  she  was  the  true  motivating  force  of  his 
life.  What's  more,  he  admits  it.  And  he  is 
deeply  grateful. 

"For  everything  I  am  or  own  in  the  world 
to-day,  I  am  directly  indebted  to  Clare," 
Young  tells  you  with  the  utmost  sincerity. 
"When  I  was  nothing  but  a  shiftless  and 
mediocre  actor,  she  comforted  me,  shooed 
away  the  blue  devils,  urged  me  on  and  en- 
couraged me  with  words,  as  well  as  with  the 
more  material  assistance  of  her  plays.  She 
gave  me  the  opportunity  of  achieving  a 
reasonably  solid  success  on  both  stage  and 
screen.  Because  of  her,  I  am  earning  the 
money  with  which  to  gratify  my  rather  odd 
whims,  the  money  to  run  my  home,  to  buy 
practically  anything  in  the  world  that  I 
want.  And  last,  but  not  least,  she  gave  me 
my  wife,  Marjorie,  whom  I  love  with  my 
very  life — so  is  it  any  wonder  that  I  love  my 
mother-in-law?" 


Did  You  Knatr  That  ...  English  producers  have  been  cabling  Roland  Young:  "Please  come  home. 
Ail  will  be  forgiven  if  you  do  a  couple  of  pictures  in  England"  and  that  Roland  cabled  back,  "Maybe  I  will"?

Three  Long  Cheers  For  Arline  Judge

When  Her  Fun  Began 

COLLEGE  life  hit  Arline  when  she  was 
"going  on  sixteen"  after  a  compara- 
tively mild  childhood  spent  in  Bridgeport, 
Connecticut.  At  the  aforementioned  age, 
Arline's  parents  entered  her  in  the  IVsuline 
Academy,  a  finishing  school  in  New  York 
City.    And  then  the  fun  began. 

"It  was  during  the  football  season  and  a 
schoolmate  of  mine  knew  some  of  the  boys 
at  West  Point  who  were  in  town  to  cheer  on 
their  team  against  Notre  Dame.  I  had  had  a 
date  with  a  nice  little  fellow  from  my  home- 
town to  attend  the  big  event,  but  two  days 
before  the  game  he  was  stricken  with  the 
measles  and  had  to  return  home.  It  nearly 
broke  me  up.  Not  that  I  cared  so  much  for 
him — but  I  hated  to  miss  the  game.  My 
girl-friend  kept  telling  me  to  stop  crying. 
She  said  she  would  fix  up  a  blind  date  with  a 
West  Point  cadet  who  was  a  friend  of  her 
friend. 

"  I'll  never  forget  the  emotions  of  that  first 
blind  date.  Any  girl  who  has  ever  had  one 
(and  who  hasn't?)  knows  what  I'm  talking 
about.  You  set  out  for  the  meeting  one 
degree  short  of  a  nervous  breakdown, 
wondering  what  you  are  going  to  draw  in 
your  Surprise  Package.  You  harbor  a 
pathetic  hope  that  the  L'nseen  Number  will 
turn  out  to  be  a  cross  between  your  favorite 
movie  actor  and  Bing  Crosby,  but  you've  a 
low  down  hunch  he  will  be  simple-minded 
and  near-sighted. 

"When  the  boys  called  for  us  the  day'  of 
the  game,  1  had  to  force  myself  to  keep  from 
walking  into  the  room  with  my  eyes  shut 
(to  ward  off  the  blow  as  long  as  possible). 
But  accidents  will  happen,  even  when  it 
comes  to  blind  dates.  There  stood  my  Big 
Moment,  the  best-looking  boy  1  have  ever 
seen.  His  name  was,  and  is,  Hugh  Warner 
Stevenson.  For  two  years  I  was  madly  in 
love  with  him. 

And  She  Says  She  Was  "True"! 

WE  WROTE  each  other  daily  after 
that  first  meeting.  I  lost  all  interest 
in  school.  I  would  ditch  any  class  any  time 
to  hop  up  to  West  Point  to  see  my  secret 
sorrow.  What  letters  we  wrote!  I  still  have 
his.    Wonder  if  he  has  mine? 

"Though  I  was  really  true  to  the  Army," 
laughs  Arline,  "I  couldn't  help  being  inter- 
ested in  other  collegians.  Once,  when  Hugh 
and  I  had  a  little  quarrel,  I  accepted  an 
invitation  to  a  prom  dance  at  Washington 
and  Lee  University  in  Lexington,  Yirginia. 
It  was  Dick  Franklin  who  asked  me  (my 
mother's  favorite  among  my  beaux),  but 
it  was  Jack  Thorington  who  nearly  cut  out 
Hugh  in  my  affections.  What  a  number  he 
was,  and  what  a  wonderful  time  we  had 
together.  Incidentally,  I've  had  several 
letters  from  him  since  the  release  of  'Are 
These  Our  Children?'  recalling  the  good 
times  we  had  together  and  wishing  me  well 
in  my  marriage  and  my  career." 

I  ask  Arline  if  Thorington  was  a  football 
player.  They  are  supposed  to  wreak  so 
much  havoc  among  the  fair  co-eds.  But  she 
shakes  her  towsled  head. 

"I  never  went  in  much  for  football 
players.  Most  of  them  bend  backward  with 
conceit — and  then  they  can't  date  a  girl 
very  much.  Training  and  all  that  sort  of 
thing.  They  have  to  be  in  bed  at  ten 
o'clock — and  little  Arline  was  usually  just 
getting  going  good  at  that  time.  I  did, 
however,  have  one  week-end  date  at  West 
Point  with  'Red'  Cagle.  He  was  a  nice, 
quiet  kid — and  I  don't  think  he  was  par- 
ticularly interested  in  me,  or  any  other  girl. 

"You  remember,  it  later  came  out  that 
Red  had  been  secretly  married  for  some 
time  and  it  caused  an  awful  fuss  when  it  was 


discovered.  '  Red '  and  I  spent  our  entire 
time  at  the  week-end  dance  consuming  in- 
numerable dishes  of  ice  cream  and  trying  to 
stir  up  a  little  mutually  interesting  conversa- 
tion. I  never  saw  him  after  that  except  on 
the  football  field.  And  what  a  player  he 
was ! 

So  She  Became  an  Actress 

I  GUESS  I  just  about  put  the  finishing 
touches  on  my  own  finishing  school 
career,  when  I  decided  to  ditch  my  first  year 
finals  and  go  up  to  West  Point  to  see  my 
beloved  Hugh  graduated.  I  had  a  whole 
book  of  round-trip  tickets  to  West  Point — 
and  exactly  twenty-five  cents  in  my  pocket. 
It  was  a  glorious  day — Hugh  looked  wonder- 
ful in  his  cadet  uniform  and  I  was  so  proud 
of  him. 

"Immediately  after  the  exercises,  he  had 
to  catch  a  train  for  home  and  I  remember 
we  clung  to  each  other  on  the  platform, 
swearing  eternal  devotion.  I  suppose  I 
cried — I  know  I  felt  terribly  dramatic.  It 
was  then  that  I  made  up  my  mind  I  was  not 
going  back  to  school — ever.  I  was  too  upset. 
I  was  going  on  the  stage  or  something,  where 
I  could  forget  our  'cruel'  separation. 

"Kids  are  funny,"  Arline  philosophized, 
"Hugh  was  no  more  than  out  of  sight  than 
I  began  to  smile  at  another  cute  cadet  I 
knew,  Roger  Moore.  We  chatted  flirta- 
tiously a  couple  of  moments  and  Cadet 
Moore  said  he  was  driving  back  to  New 
'S  ork.  He  asked  if  I  wanted  to  ride  along  in 
his  Ford. 

"We  stopped  along  the  way  and  I  sent  my 
mother  a  wire  that  I  was  not  going  back  to 
school  and  begged  her  not  to  be  worried. 
I  told  her  I  knew  the  parents  of  several  of 
the  girls  I  had  met  at  school  and  I  was  sure 
1  could  stay  with  one  of  my  friends  at  her 
home  until  I  could  get  started  on  the  stage. 
Sure  enough,  I  did  make  my  home  for  a 
week  or  two  with  the  family  of  one  of  my 
friends. 

Her  Mother  Couldn't  Object 

MOTHER  sent  me  money  and  wrote 
that  she  knew  I  was  not  serious 
about  my  schooling  and  that  I  might  as  well 
try  my  luck  at  the  stage  if  I  thought  I  had 
an  opportunity. 

"While  I  had  been  attending  Ursuline 
Academy,  I  had  been  taking  dancing  lessons 
from  Jack  Donahue.  When  I  put  my 
ambitions  before  him,  he  said  he  thought  I 
had  a  chance  to  make  a  go  of  it  on  the  stage. 
He  got  me  a  short  vaudeville  contract,  a 
two-months  stock  engagement,  and  it  was 
through  his  influence  that  I  finally  landed 
back  on  Broadway  in  Ruth  Selwyn's  'Nine- 
Fifteen  Revue.'  Harry  Carroll  saw  the 
show  and,  when  it  closed,  offered  me  a  job 
in  his  Revue.  We  were  on  the  road  for  three 
months. 

"When  I  returned  to  Broadway,  I  did  a 
specialty  number  in  'The  Second  Little 
Show'  and  I  guess  somebody  important 
from  RKO  must  have  seen,  and  liked,  my 
little  number  because  I  was  offered  a  con- 
tract to  come  to  Hollywood. 

"Yes,  it  makes  me  a  little  dizzy  to  think 
how  quickly  things  have  happened  to  me. 
Just  three  short  years  ago,  I  was  hopping 
to  college  proms  and  suffering  through 
schoolgirl  infatuations.  Wesley"  (surely 
you  know  by  now  that  Wesley  means 
Arline's  husband  and  director)  "gets  an 
awful  kick  out  of  looking  at  my  collection  of 
fraternity  pins  and  rings  and  so  forth.  He 
says  I  was  too  fickle  to  have  been  so  popular. 
If  he  had  been  one  of  the  collegians  he 
swears  he  would  have  shot  me!  I'm  glad  I 
didn't  marry  a  collegian — as  cute  as  they 
are,  they  are  so  hol-cha!" 

You,  too,  Arline.  .  .  .

Lively  When  She  Wants  to  Be 

FI\<  >\l  the  ph)  !;>oint.  her  lips, 

-  and  n.istrils  reveal  that  she  is  very 
vital  in  temperament.  She  could,  in  chosen 
company,  laugh  and  play  and  carry  on  in  the 
manner.  She  could  be  very 
human  and  amusing.  But  she  couldn't  be 
that  way  with  everybody  nor  could  she  Lie 
that  way  all  of  the  time,  even  with  friends. 
She  has  too  much  repression  for  that,  but 
not  a  snob  by  any  means. 

Looking  at  the  set  of  her  lips,  I  would  say 
that  at  times  she  has  a  tendency  to  get  a  bit 
unnerved,  and  has  to  struggle  for  self-con- 
trol. This  little  tendency  is  invariably  re- 
I  by  a  slightly  oblique  mouth.  But  she 
ic  I  always  comes  through  all 

right.  I  would  say  she  had  the  makings  of  a 
sterling  little  friend  and  would  be  a  good 
sticker  through  trouble.  She  may  not  as  yet 
have  had  to  put  this  trait  to  use,  but  when 
the  time  comes,  I  know  she  will  be  that  way. 

From  the  nose,  nostrils  and  lips  I  should 
further  >ay  that  she  is  capable  of  ardent 
affect  ion —very  ardent  and  very  adoring, 
but  it  will  be  hard  to  make  her  show  it  at 
first. 

Sylvia  Sidney  is  a  real  "find,"  so  far  as 
motion  pictures  are  concerned.  She  is  just 
irl  suited  to  pick  up  the  mantle  of 
tradition  for  an  excellent,  artistic,  sympa- 
thetic performance.  She  is  a  little  Sarah 
Bernhardt  in  the  making.

Confessions  of  a  Gigolo 


{Continued  from  -page  41) 


pounds.  Later  he  took  up  professional 
dancing  and  as  he  was  a  good-looking  young 
chap,  with  a  touch  of  Latia  romance  about 
him,  he  soon  heard  of  an  opening  in  the 
gigolo  business. 

Where  He  Met  Valentino 

THEY  didn't  call  us  gigolos  in  those 
days,"  explains  Raft.  "The  word  was 
later  brought  in  from  France.  We  were 
known  as  'dance  entertainers.' 

"I  was  a  gigolo  at  various  places  in  New 
York,  but  principally  Murray's,  Churchill's, 
and  Rector's.  It  was  a  very  popular  thing 
for  unescorted  women  to  drop  in  at  some 
fashionable  place  in  the  afternoon  for  tea, 
or  a  few  drinks.  There  was  good  music,  and 
the  house  furnished  the  dancers. 

"I  first  met  Valentino  at  Rector's — only 
lie  was  known  as  Guglielmi  then.  Affairs 
were  conducted  quite  properly.  The  hostess 
was  Peggy  Howard.  She  had  charge  of  us. 
Each  of  us  wore  a  white  button  on  the  right 
lapel  to  show  that  we  were  house  dancers, 
and  weren't  outsiders  promoting  around 
among  the  women — which  wasn't  permitted. 

"The  cafi  was  divided  off  into  stands, 
such  as  waiters  have.  Each  gigolo  was  sup- 
posed to  look  after  the  ladies  at  a  certain 
number  of  tables — that  is,  unless  there  were 
girls  that  you  knew,  and  had  danced  with 
before,  in  which  case  it  was  all  right  to  go  to 
other  tables  and  ask  them  to  dance. 

"We  were  paid  two  dollars  an  afternoon 
by  the  management,  so,  of  course,  we  de- 
pended for  our  principal  income  on  tips. 
The  average  gigolo  earned  between  seventy- 
five  and  one  hundred  dollars  a  week,  unless 
In-  was  lucky  and  had  some  middle-aged 
wealthy  dame  fall  for  him,  in  which  case  he 
could  expect  much  higher  tips  while  the 
crush  lasted. 

"Valentino  took  care  of  the  tables  next 
to  mine.  He  was  reserved,  probably  because 
he  then  had  a  pronounced  accent.  To  tell 
you  the  truth,  we  weren't  as  popular  as 
some  of  the  other  boys  in  the  place.  The 
vogue  for  Latin  types  hadn't  started  yet, 
and  most  of  the  women  were  going  for  the 
light-haired  boys.  We  often  used  to  wish  we 
didn't  have  such  a  'foreign'  look! 

He  and  Rudy  Learned  About 
Women 

YOU  learn  a  lot  about  women,  being  a 
gigolo.  Of  course,  it  was  principally 
a  business  with  us.  We  were  always  on  the 
lookout  for  older  women,  as  they  generally 
had  more  money  and  tipped  us  more  liber- 
ally for  our  services,  and  also,  if  they  liked 
us,  would  invite  us  out  on  parties  for  the 
evening  as  their  dance  partners,  and,  of 
course,  that  meant  a  good-sized  piece  of 
change. 

"We  ducked  the  younger  women  when 
we  could,  as  they  didn't  mean  much  in  a 
financial  way.  About  all  they'd  ever  do 
would  be  to  fall  in  love  and  that  interferes 
with  a  gigolo's  business.  Some  of  these  girls 
were  debutantes,  some  were  fast-stepping 
show  girls,  some  were  high-class  street  girls 
— it  was  pretty  hard  to  tell  them  apart. 

"They  were  the  type  who  wouldn't  get 
in  until  dawn,  and  then  would  get  up  about 
noon.  Having  nothing  to  do  until  after 
dark,  they  would  come  to  Rector's  or  one  of 
the  other  places,  eat  breakfast  about  two, 
and  dance  or  sip  their  drinks  the  rest  of  the 
afternoon  until  it  was  time  to  go  home  and 
dress  for  the  evening. 

"Such  girls  usually  just  had  pocket 
money,  about  enough  to  pay  their  bill  at 
Rector's  and  give  a  small  tip,  and,  of  course, 
had  other  engagements  for  the  evening. 
The  older  women  were  usually  the  ones 
who  were  glad  to  have  a  good-looking  escort 


for  some  gay  party.  It  was  very  flattering 
to  them,  and  most  of  them,  too,  were  good 
scouts. 

"The  principal  worry  of  a  gigolo  is  pre- 
venting women  from  falling  in  love  with  him. 
You'd  be  surprised,  the  number  of  girls  and 
women  of  good  standing  who  will  get  a  great 
crush,  really  serious,  on  some  professional 
dancer  whom  they've  only  met  a  few  times, 
and  about  whom  they  know  absolutely 
nothing.  You  have  to  put  a  stop  to  it 
quickly,  but  diplomatically,  or  it  gets  to  be 
an  awful  nuisance. 

Both  Had  to  Dodge  Marriage 

VALENTINO,  or  any  of  us,  could  have 
been  married  a  dozen  times  to  anybody 
from  debutantes  in  the  Social  Register  to 
middle-aged  heiresses  who  were  lonely. 
The  women  we  liked  best  were  those  who 
sought  us  out  strictly  because  we  liked  to 
dance.  One  of  my  favorite  clients  was  a 
woman  who  weighed  all  of  two  hundred  and 
twenty-five  pounds.  She  used  to  come  in 
twice  a  week  and  I'd  dance  three  or  four 
times  with  her,  and  she  always  gave  me  ten 
dollars.    Both  of  us  knew  it  was  worth  it." 

After  some  months  Raft  gave  up  the 
gigolo  business  for  a  vaudeville  offer  to 
dance  with  Joe  Frisco.  He  developed  a 
famous  "broken-leg"  eccentric  dance,  and 
appeared  for  years  in  night-clubs,  and  in 
vaudeville.  Then  he  went  abroad  and 
danced  his  eccentric  dance  in  the  capitals  of 
Europe.  Eventually  he  located  at  the 
Florida  Club,  one  of  London's  exclusive 
spots  for  the  night-blooming  nobility. 

The  club  was  a  hangout  for  the  Prince  of 
Wales,  who  likes  to  dance,  and  it  was  here 
that  Raft  taught  the  Prince  how  to  do  the 
Charleston  and  the  Black  Bottom. 

"The  Prince  is  a  pretty  good  scout,"  he 
says,  "and  likes  to  play  around.  He  also 
likes  to  know  all  of  the  latest  dances,  even 
if  he  can't  dance  them  in  public. 

"This  was  in  1927,  and  the  Charleston 
was  going  strong.  One  afternoon  the  Prince 
was  there  with  a  party,  and  asked  me  to 
show  him  the  steps.  He  was  very  intrigued, 
and  came  into  the  club  twice  a  week  there- 
after to  take  lessons,  and  seemed  to  get  a 
great  kick  out  of  it.  It  seemed  funny  to  see 
royalty  cutting  up  in  the  steps  of  the 
Charleston! 

"Of  course,  I  wouldn't  take  anything  for 
my  services — it  isn't  done  in  England — so 
the  Prince  presented  me  with  a  cigarette 
lighter  with  his  name  engraved  on  it." 

Was  to  Be  Rudy's  "Brother" 

IT  was  Valentino,  the  gigolo,  graduated  to 
be  the  world's  greatest  lover,,  who  sug- 
gested Hollywood  to  Raft. 

"I  was  frequently  mistaken  for  Rudy  in 
night-clubs.  I  saw  quite  a  bit  of  him  during 
his  last  visit  to  New  York.  He  went  to 
night-clubs  every'  night,  and  was  often  seen 
at  Tex  Guinan's  300  Club,  and  the  Play- 
ground, where  I  worked.  One  'Celebrity 
Night'  at  the  Playground,  Valentino  was 
my  guest.    He  made  me  a  proposition. 

'"Come  to  Hollywood,  George,'  he  said, 
'and  I'll  start  you  in  the  movies.  I  can  use 
you  in  my  next  picture,  playing  the  role  of 
my  brother,  and  I'm  sure  with  that  start 
you'll  go  over.' 

"It  has  been  said  that  I  was  to  be 
Valentino's  stand-in  and  double,  but  this  is 
not  true.  Look  at  the  difference  in  our 
height!  I  agreed  to  go  back  to  Hollywood 
with  him.  However,  he  was  taken  to  the 
hospital  and  died  a  few  days  later,  so  I 
gave  the  Hollywood  idea  no  further 
thought."

sedate  Lady  Oxford,  was  introduced  to  the 
King  of  Belgium,  was  entertained  in  the 
South  of  France  by  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Frank  J. 
Gould.  The  whole  thing  sounds  like 
Book  or  an  Almanach  de  Gotha.  Only 
Gandhi  and  a  British  judge  "took  him 
down"  during  all  this  holidaying.  Gandhi, 
living  in  a  strange  world  of  dates,  goat's 
milk  and  meditation,  averred  that  he  had 
never  seen  a  Chaplin  picture,  while  the

Chaplin's  entrance  into  London  was  mag- 
nificent— a    perfect    piece  of  showmanship. 
A   British  publication  remarked  of  it,  "He 
descended  on  London  at  a  time  when  it  was 
not  clogged  with  Ascot  and  Ranelagh,  and 
royal  garden  parties  and  public  school  and 
university   cricket   matches  and  the  like." 
He  therefore  occupied  the  center  of  the  stage. 
And  here  is  where  romance  entered.    For 
it   was  at  a   party   that   Sari   Maritza,  who

Does  a  Mother-Complex  Threaten 
Swanson  Career  ? 


{Co  n  I  in  tied  from  page  44) 


Perhaps  her  yearning  for  affection  has  led 
her  into  romances  that  never  developed  into 
real  companionships,  somehow.  Then,  too, 
Gloria,  ever  surrounded  by  a  flame  of  excite- 
ment and  leading  a  vivid  screen  life,  may 
have  found  it  difficult  to  adjust  herself  to  the 
routine  of  marriage. 

"The  only  reason  why  I  should  ever  think 
of  marrying  again,"  she  once  told  a  friend, 
"would  be  to  have  more  children."  Now,  in 
the  handsome  young  Briton,  Michael 
Farmer,  her  fourth  husband,  she  feels  she 
has  found  her  true  mate.  Gloria's  gorgeous 
sense  of  humor  is  matched  by  his  Irish  wit; 
their  agile  minds  complement  each  other; 
they  look  upon  life  in  much  the  same  way 
and,  best  of  all,  he,  too,  wishes  a  family, 
adores  the  ready-made  one  he  has  married, 
and  is  jubilant  over  the  new  baby. 

The  Kind  of  Mother  She  Is 

ALREADY,  Gloria  Swanson  has  proved 
.  herself  the  perfect  mother.  She  has 
fought  to  keep  the  children  from  the  public 
and  she  has  never  permitted  a  picture  of 
them  to  reach  the  papers.  So  well  has  she 
drilled  this  into  her  daughter's  mind  that, 
when  group  pictures  are  being  taken  at  the 
beach  or  at  a  children's  party,  little  Gloria 
1  urns  her  head  so  as  to  be  out  of  the  camera's 
focus,  or  hides  her  face  in  her  hands. 

This  is,  1  believe,  the  first  story  to  tell  of 
the  inside  life  of  the  Swanson  household, 
which  is  <  iloria's  own  life  more  than  all  her 
publicized,  photographed  work  and  play. 

Gloria  II,  now  eleven,  whose  father  is 
Herbert  Somborn,  Gloria  Swanson's  second 
husband,  and  nine-year-old  Joseph,  the 
adopted  son.  are  two  of  the  best-reared 
children  in  Beverly  Hills.  Perhaps  because 
she  missed  so  much  in  her  own  childhood, 
Gloria  is  making  special  efforts  to  give  them 
every  advantage.  In  her  home  on  Crescent 
Drive,  set  amid  spacious  gardens,  they  are 
surrounded  by  every  influence  that  builds 
character  and  gives  cultural  background. 

They  are  unspoiled,  democratic,  well- 
and  have  charming  manners — chil- 
dren to  be  proud  of.  When,  before  going  to 
Europe,  their  mother  told  them  about  the 
new  baby  who  would  be  coming,  both  were 
wild  with  joy  and  little  Gloria  said, 
"Wouldn't  it  be  fun  to  have  twins!" 

Neither  Gloria  II  nor  Joseph  has  any 
desire  to  go  into  pictures.  This  is  well,  for 
Gloria  would  never  give  her  consent.  They 
may  select  any  other  career  except  that  of 
acting.    On  this  she  is  very  positive. 

Boy  Is  NOT  Her  Child 

THE  little  girl  plays  the  piano  beautifully, 
and  is  studying  harmony  and  also  the 
harp,  showing  an  unusual  aptitude  in  music 
that  may  blossom  into  definite  talent.  Both 
children  love  to  read,  especially  Joseph,  who 
is  buried  in  a  book  most  of  the  time,  sea  and 
adventure  stories  being  his  favorites.  Other- 
wise, he  displays  no  particular  talent  yet, 
unless  it  is  for  boats.  On  his  last  birthday, 
he  received  a  whole  fleet  of  small  sea  craft 
and  knows  the  mechanism  and  history  of 
each  by  heart. 

Naturally,  Gloria  Swanson  has  been  the 
target  for  much  talk — the  price  of  fame. 
While  she  is  never  indifferent  to  unkind 
comments,  she  shrinks  from  criticism,  but 
has  learned  to  hide  the  hurt  and  keep  her 
head  up. 

She  tells  this  story  on  herself.  One  day  in 
New  York,  soon  after  she  adopted  Joseph,  a 
group  of  friends  were  chatting  in  her  dress- 
ing-room when  she  said,  "Let  a  woman  be 
talked  about  once  and  she's  always  talked 


about.  I  guess  the  only  thing  I  haven't  been 
accused  of  is  being  Joseph's  mother."  At 
this  point,  Lois  Wilson  laughed,  saying, 
"Why,  Gloria,  don't  you  know  that  a  great 
many  people  think  he  is  your  own  baby?" 

While  she  has  always  said  that  she  wished 
he  were,  Joseph  is  not  Gloria  Swanson's 
child.  This  is  a  definite  assertion.  She  made 
four  pictures  the  year  he  was  born,  and  was 
at  the  studio  nearly  every  day. 

Soon  after  her  divorce  from  Herbert 
Somborn,  when  she  thought  she  would  never 
marry  again,  Gloria  felt  that  her  daughter 
needed  a  playmate  and  decided  to  adopt  a 
child  to  grow  up  with  her  own.  Though  very 
busy  at  the  time  making  pictures,  she  began 
her  search  for  a  suitable  child.  Finally, 
word  came  that  a  three-months-old  boy, 
fulfilling  her  strict  requirements,  had  been 
found  and  it  was  arranged  for  her  to  see  the 
baby. 

In  relating  the  experience,  to  a  friend 
later,  Gloria  said,  "  It  was  just  like  me  not  to 
pick  out  a  curly-headed  cherub,  but  to  find 
Joseph — such  a  homely,  scrawny  little  thing. 
When  he  looked  up  at  me,  I  felt  he  needed 
me.  It  would  be  fun  to  bring  him  into 
splendid  health,  to  see  him  develop  into  a 
fine,  handsome,  wonderful  son!  And  it  has 
been!" 

Both  Children  Treated  Alike 

GLORIA  has  never  shown  the  least 
partiality  between  the  children  and  her 
will,  it  is  said,  divides  her  property  equally 
1  ri  «  mi  the  two.  Now  that  there  is  a  third 
child,  her  estate  will  be  divided  three  ways. 

When  little  Gloria  was  about  two,  Gloria 
Swanson  secured  Miss  Simonson  as  gover- 
ness for  her  daughter.  She  is  a  capable, 
charming,  motherly  woman  and  the  children 
love  her  devotedly.  She  has  full  charge  over 
them,  is  their  constant  companion,  and  her 
word  is  their  law.  "Sime,"  as  they  affec- 
tionately call  her,  is  the  dominant  influence 
in  their  lives. 

Gloria  is  the  lovely,  perfumed  goddess 
whom  the  children  worship.  She  brings  to 
them  her  sweetest  side,  is  always  cheerful, 
always  merry  and  chummy.  When  she  is 
worried  or  unhappy  she  keeps  away  from 
them.  Gloria  often  includes  them  in  gay 
larks,  such  as  the  time  last  summer,  follow- 
ing dinner  with  a  few  intimate  friends,  when 
it  was  suddenly  decided  to  stage  an  im- 
promptu fashion  show.  Gloria  II  joined  the 
others  in  dolling  up  in  her  mother's  choicest 
finery  and  parading  before  the  amused 
judge,  Gene  Markey.  After  the  awarding  of 
a  flock  of  silly  prizes,  the  party  went  to  the 
kitchen  to  make  fudge  and  raid  the  refrige- 
rator. Imagine  the  bright  page  this  will  add 
to  Gloria's  memories!  After  all,  children  do 
not  treasure  the  sacrifices  and  noble  deeds  of 
their  parents  as  they  do  some  bit  of  fun, 
some  happy  frolic  that  places  them  all  on  the 
same  level. 

Gloria  and  Joseph  have  attended  the 
Beverly  Hills  public  school  on  Rexford 
Drive,  though  at  present  they  are  at  school 
in  Switzerland.  Miss  Simonson  and  Ray, 
the  trusted  chauffeur,  see  that  they  arrive 
and  return  safely.  The  children  also 
regularly  attend  Sunday  School. 

There  is  a  private  theatre  in  the  Swanson 
home  and  Gloria  often  secures  pictures  she 
wishes  the  children  to  see.  She  makes  this 
an  event,  letting  them  invite  their  young 
friends  to  dinner  before  viewing  the  film. 
"The  Millionaire"  and  "Skippy ' '  have  been 
among  the  chosen  few.  Seldom  does  she 
permit  them  to  see  her  own  pictures —

Has  Chaplin  Stayed 
Abroad  Too   Long?

ber, was  little  m 

be  married  her. 

Likened  Him  to  Christ 

AT  the  Chaplin 
ontaining  ittest  the 

enormity  of  his  conquests  socially,  artisti- 
cally and,  incidentally,  perhaps  amorously 
in  Europe.    Hut:  triking  thing  that 

they  reveal  is  the  fact  that  he  was  inter- 
viewed by  Emil  Ludwig,  the  author  and 
biographer  of  "Napoleon,"  "Bismarck," 
etc.,  who  compared  t  harlie  with  Christ.  In 
order  oi  world-importance  and 

ng  men's  imaginations,  Ludwig  listed 
Christ.  Chaplin  and  Gandhi. 

Rapturously,  Ludwig  exclaimed,  "What 
is  the  fame  of  Gandhi,  compared  with  him 
who  has  shaken  the  world  as  only  the  figure 
of  Christ  has  done  before  him?  There  is 
no  one  yet  who  has  sustained  such  world- 
iine,  and  yet  remained  so  simple  and 
unaffected."  1  don't  think  there  has  ever 
been  a  greater  tribute  paid  to  Chaplin. 

What  star  of  the  films  has  ever  gained  so 
much  for  his  enterprU  >t light  was 

continuously   focused   on    Chaplin   al 
even  though   it  dashes  on  him  only  inter- 
mittently  at    home.     He    never    missed    a 
chance  to  "sell"   his  picture  to  his  inter- 
national audience.     That   Charlie  went   to 
Europe,  and  that  he  remained  away  so  long, 
for  any  other  reason  than  "selling"  ti 
ture  is  gravely  doubted  in  1 1  oily  wood,  though 
it  is  willingly  granted   that   he  is  a  great 
"play-time    Charlie."      Beside    him,    even 
Barnum  was  a  rank  amateur  as  a  ball)  hooer. 
Don't  fool  yourself  that  this  little  come 
dian   doesn't   know  the  value  of  publicity. 
From   the    old,    old    days    he    has    always 
managed  to  get  plenty  of  it. 

The  expedients  he  used  in  the  beginning 
were  very  simple — such  as  performing  com- 
edy stunts  on  the  old  "million-dollar  rug" 
(now  long  forgotten)  at  the  Alexandria 
Hotel,  his  "dallying" — that's  the  word  he 
himself  once  used  to  me  to  describe  it — 
with  beauteous  damosels  of  the  movies  1  le 
has  always  aimed  to  be  a  romantic  figure, 
he  goes  alter  the  "big  stuff."  It's 
kings,  queens  and  aces  with  Charlie.  And 
meanwhile,  how  the  profits  roll  up! 

Charlie  found  out  in  Europe  that  he  could 

even  get  along  without  a  press-agent.    So 

Carlyie  Robinson,  who  has  worked  in  that 

i  y  for  him  for  many  years,  came  home. 

But    now  the  headliner  has   his   biggest 

battle  right  ahead  of  him.     He'll  have  to 

convince  the  movie  folk  themselves  thai  he's 

■till  a  kingpin.   He'll  probably  have  to  make 

some  hard-headei  Mm  believe  that 

in  still  go  on   making  silent    picture: 

And   he'll   h  i      to  keep  in   :  hi  here 

as  he  h  is  abroad. 

The  "dope"  in  I  loll j  wood  is  that  Charlie 
will  start  in,  returns,  to  make

No  man  will  ever  tame  Joan  Crawford, 
her  Handwriting  says 


(Continued  from  page  57) 


thing  on  which  to  put  her  new  Paris  hat. 
Although  her  personality  shows  both 
charm  and  brilliance,  there  is  a  sound  under- 
lying element  in  her  character  that  also 
gives  her  practical  ability.  Take  another 
look  at  her  signature  and  notice  her  full, 
round  letter  "J" — and  the  way  in  which  her 
first  and  last  name  are  tied  together — and 
the  open-looped  "d"  in  her  last  name,  which 
swings  backward  with  a  graceful  flourish 
until  it  almost  joins  her  unusual  underscore. 

Can  Hide  Her  Emotions 

THESE  show  self-confidence  and  assure 
us  that  she  is  not  afraid  to  tackle  hard 
work  when  its  necessary  to  do  so/  They  also 
tell  me  that  she  has  physical  vitality  and 
enthusiasm,  so  that  she  has  no  trouble  in 
finding  a  great  deal  of  enjoyment  in  her 
work — even  though  she  may  not  show  this 
enjoyment  on  the  surface.  Joan  would  make 
a  good  poker  player,  as  she  can  keep  her 
thoughts  to  herself  and  not  bat  an  eyelash  if 
she  chooses,  no  matter  what  she  may  be 
feeling  underneath.  You  can  see  this  in  her 
small  "o's"  and  "a's,"  which  are  almost  all 
tightly  closed  and  somewhat  angular.  This 
is  true  despite  her  capital  "D"  in  "Dear," 
which  is  a  trifle  open,  and  despite  the 
forward  angle  of  her  handwriting,  which 
shows  that  she  is  also  frank  and  sincere  and 
can  show  her  emotions  easily. 

All  these  characteristics  of  her  hand- 
writing of  which  1  have  spoken,  taken  in 
conjunction  with  the  fairly  wide  and  even 
spaces  between  her  words,  show  me  that  she 
has  the  ability  of  cool  and  deliberate  thought 
— probably  unsuspected  by  the  average 
male  with  whom  she  comes  in  contact.  Men 
will  be  apt  to  judge  her  by  her  charm  en- 
tirely and  will  not  expect  her  to  have  much 
braininess.  But  in  reality  her  mind  is  ac- 
curate and  logical,  and  she  knows  how  to 
enhance  her  real  power  and  brilliance  by  dis- 
playing it  cautiously,  rather  than  in  a  too 
spectacular  manner,  which  would  scare  off 
people  or  make  them  envious  of  her. 

She,  herself,  may  not  be  conscious  of  her 
reason  for  this  cautiousness,  as  it  is  more  or 
less  an  instinctive  reserve,  caused  by  a 
certain  self-analysis,  which  makes  her  want 
to  think  firstly  and  act  secondly.  Notice 
that  her  "t"  crossings  are  about  in  the 
middle  of  the  letter  and  not  'way  up  at  the 
top,  which  is  where  you  would  be  apt  to  find 
them  in  a  handwriting  so  full  of  motion  and 
rhythm.  Look  at  your  own  handwriting  or 
that  of  your  friends  and  see  if  this  is  not  true 
in  most  cases.  You  movie  addicts  who  have 
seen  her  in  various  pictures  in  which  she 
portrays  "flaming  youth"  may  wonder  at 
what  I  am  telling  you,  but  I  assure  you  this 
is  true  and  not  a  press-agent's  story. 

What  Proves  She's  Moody 

WITH  all  this  caution  and  self- 
analysis,  you  will  find  that  she  can  be 
temperamental  at  times,  even  to  tantrums, 
and  is  not  always  easy  to  handle.  At  such 
times  she  is  apt  to  forget  her  caution  and 
probably  says  things  which  she  deeply  re- 
grets afterwards,  or  else  bottles  up  these 
bitter  feelings  until  she  is  about  ready  to  bite 
a  nail  in  two.  Notice  that  there  are  six 
different  kinds  of  "t"  crossings  in  this  short 
specimen  of  her  handwriting,  and  a  slight 
downward  pull  to  the  word  "handwriting," 
and  a  long,  graceful  dash  after  the  word 
"Rice."  Yet  the  majority  of  her  hand- 
writing runs  slightly  upward.  When  you 
find  these  combinations,  you  will  always  find 
some  moodiness,  although  it  is  not  a  very 
dominant  quality  in  Joan's  nature. 


The  truth  of  the  matter  is  that  she  is 
changeable  by  temperament,  but  logical 
mentally — and,  this  makes  her  somewhat 
difficult  for  the  casual  observer  to  under- 
stand. Some  perfectly  innocent  little  thing 
will  strike  her  in  the  wrong  way,  and  then 
come  the  fireworks.  But  her  mood  is  apt  to 
go  as  quickly  as  it  comes. 

Fortunately,  she  has  a  sense  of  humor  and 
can  laugh  at  many  things  that  might  make 
other  women  cry  and  tear  their  hair.  Thus 
she  is  able  to  be  amused  by  her  mistakes, 
when  the  first  bitterness  has  worn  off,  and  to 
forget  the  hurt  to  her  pride,  and  forgive  it, 
too,  when  it  concerns  herself  alone.  But  if 
you  hurt  anyone  for  whom  she  really  cares, 
watch  out — for  that  she  will  never  forgive 
and  forget,  and  for  such  people  she  will  fight. 

And  that  brings  us  to  her  love  nature 
and  the  intimate  personal  side  of  her 
character  which,  after  all,  is  just  as  im- 
portant as  the  mental  side  and  much  more 
interesting  to  some  of  us,  I  dare  say.  This 
young  woman  may  marry  once  or  a  dozen 
times  during  her  life — which  should  be  long, 
barring  accidents,  as  she  has  excellent 
physical  vitality — but  no  man  will  ever 
possess  more  of  her  than  she  chooses  to  give. 

Yet  there  is  plenty  of  affection  and  emo- 
tion shown  in  her  handwriting,  and  she  can 
give  royally  when  she  cares  to  do  so.  Notice 
the  first  high  stroke  of  her  capital  "M"  in 
"Miss,"  and  you  will  see  a  spirit  of  defiance 
which  shows  independence  and  dislike  of 
being  possessed  too  greatly,  even  by  those 
who  are  first  in  her  affections.  On  this  ac- 
count, it  is  easier  for  her  to  play  at  love  than 
to  give  herself  freely  and  fully,  and  people 
may  think  her  indifferent  when  she  is  really 
quite  the  contrary. 

Be  careful  not  to  try  to  take  anything 
away  from  her  which  she  feels  is  hers — un- 
less she  offers  it  to  you  first.  And  that  applies 
not  only  to  her  possessions,  but  to  those 
whom  she  loves,  as  well.  She  can  fight  for 
her  rights  when  necessary  and  will  dislike 
people  who  take  too  freely  of  her  time  or  her 
possessions  without   asking. 

Her  Ideal  of  a  Husband 

SHE  is  fond  of  good  times  and  spending 
money,  although  I  would  not  call  her 
recklessly  extravagant.  She  will  not  want 
anything  that  is  elaborate  or  fussy,  as  her 
tastes  are  simple  and  her  judgment  good.  I 
doubt  that  she  has  much  patience  when  it 
comes  to  trying  on  dozens  of  gowns,  if  she 
has  to  stand  very  long  to  be  fitted,  in  spite 
of  her  love  of  attractive  clothes. 

Her  ideal  of  a  husband  is  a  man  who  is 
nice-looking,  but  he  must  not  be  a  "pretty" 
man  or  without  spunk.  For  she  likes  to  be 
dominated  to  some  extent,  even  though  she 
may  fight  against  it  and  be  very  independ- 
ent. What  woman  doesn't?  The  man  who 
can  hold  her  love  the  longest  will  be  firm, 
but  not  too  dictatorial  and  "bossy,"  and  will 
understand  her  reserve,  as  well  as  her  loving 
nature. 

Thus  we  have  Joan  Crawford,  as  shown 
by  her  handwriting.  (And  handwriting  tells 
the  truth  about  us  all,  no  matter  how  we 
may  try  to  hide  or  disguise  ourselves  to  the 
world  in  general.)  Life  should  always  be 
interesting  to  her,  as  she  has  so  much  charm 
and  talent  and  the  strength  to  fight  for  what 
she  wants  to  gain.  She  should  be  careful  not 
to  be  too  tensely  personal  in  her  reactions 
and  to  use  her  talents  along  the  serious,  as 
well  as  the  lighter,  lines  of  pictures.  For  she 
has  only  begun  to  develop  her  real  stage 
personality  and  ability,  in  spite  of  the  suc- 
cess that  she  has  already  found.

I  hat's  the  thing  God  ever 

He  had  planned  to  give  little  Gloria  a  big 
Christmas  party  at  his  Malibu  pla<  i 
her  mother  wired  fur  Miss  Simonson  and 
the  children  to  meet  her  at  once  in  New 
York  as  they  were  sailing  for  Europe. 
Somborn  and  his  daughter  had  a  mournful 
dinner  together  the  night  she  left,  he  drove 
her  to  the  station,  and  the  two  clung  to 
each  other  until  the  final  moment,  both 
heart-broken  at  the  parting. 

From  the  tirst.  however,  both  Gloria  11 
and  Joseph  took  to  Michael  Farmer,  and 
solemnly  advised  their  mother  to  marry 
him.  But  up  to  the  time  they  left  for 
Europe,  they  continued  to  address  him 
formally  as     Mr.  Farmer." 

They  liked  the  Marquis  de  la  Falaise, 
their  mother's  third  husband,  and  called 
him  "Sunny  Jim."  But  they  adored  Gene 
Markey,  who  a  year  ago  seemed  slated  to 
become  the  Marquis'  successor.  He  played 
with  them,  taught  little  <iloria  new  dance 
steps,  talked  boats  by  the  hour  with  Joseph; 
ther,  they  were  very  chummy. 

Now,  the  Marquis  and  Gene  Markey  are 
brothers-in-law,  having  married  the  Ben- 
nett sisters,  Constance  and  Joan.  One 
wonders  if  they  ever  cast  surreptitious 
glances  at  each  other  when  Gloria  Swari- 
son's  name  is  mentioned.  But  this  is 
Hollywood.  All  of  its  drama  does  not  reach 
the  screen. 

Signs  of  Farewell  Plans

when  3he  leaves  the  screen,  she  will  live 
in    Europe     she   loves   it   over   there — and 
■    her  time  to  music.    And  whether  or 
not  she  is  planning  to  leave  the  screen  very 
soon,  there  indication  that  she  is 

planning  a  long  Mas   abroad. 

Mr.     and     Mrs.     Mil  have 

leased    a    luxurious   home    in    Farm    Street,

But  i"  any  case,  she  will  remain  abroad  for

He*d  Rather  Die   Than  Eat  Meat 


(Continued  from  page  26) 


ribs  of  the  poor  creatures  knifing  their  ribs 
and  flanks.  So  this,  they  thought,  this  is 
what  goes  on  that  Man  may  eat  his  steak, 
his  roast  beef,  his  veal? 

On  that  day,  then  and  there,  Mr.  and 
Mrs.  Arliss  said,  almost  in  unison,  "We 
shall  never  eat  meat  again!" 

They  never  have.  On  that  day  they 
stopped  eating  the  flesh  of  animals  and 
never  have  they  touched  it  or  had  it  upon 
their  table  since. 

Mrs.  Arliss  says,  quaintly,  "/  shall  never 
eat  anything  I  can  pat."  A  quaint  comment, 
but  also  a  poignant  one.  For  there  is  some- 
thing about  that  simple  statement  that  car- 
ries with  it  the  implication  of  cannibalism. 
You  become  aware  that  someone  has  killed 
— for  you  to  eat — a  creature  that  once  could 
answer  to  touch  and  call.  You  are  eating 
a  friend.  To  murder  a  living  thing,  whose 
capacity  for  suffering  neither  you  nor  I  can 
presume  to  gauge — well,  it's  something  most 
of    us    have    never    thought    much    about. 

We  say,  if  we  say  or  think  anything  about 
it  at  all,  that  we  need  meat  in  order  to  live. 
But  Mr.  Arliss,  very  much  alive  and  sig- 
nally vital  and  more  famous  than  ever,  after 
twenty  meatless  years,  says  quietlv,  "Do 
we?"  ' 

It  was  at  first  predicted  by  members  of 
his  immediate  family  that  a  wasting  away, 
followed  by  an  early  death,  would  be  Mr. 
Arliss'  meatless  fate.  The  fact  that  George 
Bernard  Shaw,  that  bristling  literary  giant, 
and  Eustace  Miles,  the  Herculean  athlete, 
were  vegetarians  did  not  seem  to  ease  their 
minds.  And,  just  in  the  beginning,  Mr. 
Arliss  did  feel  a  trifle  nervous,  himself.  He 
consulted  an  eminent  specialist.  The  E.S. 
discovered  that  his  patient  had  foresworn 
meat.  He  said  portentously,  "Oh,  but,  my 
dear  fellow  ..." 

The  Health  "Risk"  He  Took 
E  MORE  than  implied  that  he  really 
could  not  be  responsible  for  Mr.  Arliss, 
if  Mr.  Arliss  did  not  go  back  to  his  prime 
ribs.  It  meant,  to  put  it  bluntly,  Death  or 
Meat.  And  it  took  Mr.  Arliss,  with  visions 
lit  those  prairie  slaughter  houses  before  his 
mind's  eye,  less  than  an  hour  to  decide — 
on  Death.  That  was  twenty  years  ago. 
Need  I  go  on?  In  the  words  of  the  title  of 
his  latest  picture,  his  decision  seems  to  have 
been  "A  Successful  Calamity." 

Mr.  Arliss  is  not  a  fanatic.  He  does  not 
label  himself  a  Vegetarian.  He  eats  eggs 
and  he  also  eats  fish  on  occasions.  He 
salves  his  conscience  on  this  last  count  by 
the  belief  that  fish  do  not  have  as  much  feel- 
ing as  the  animal  world.  Nor  would  Mrs. 
Arliss  particularly  care  to  pat  a  fish!  He 
admits,  tolerantly  and  moderately,  that 
there  are  circumstances  which  are  drastic 
enough  to  call  for  the  killing  of  certain  ani- 
mals. If  a  horde  of  rabbits,  for  instance, 
invade  and  consume  a  farmer's  corn-bins, 
something  certainly  has  to  be  done  about  it. 
Or  if  a  marauding,  starved  tiger  or  two  in- 
vite themselves  into  a  native  African  village 
and  devour  several  infants,  those  tigers 
should  be  put  to  death,  of  course. 

No,  Mr.  Arliss  does  not  mount  a  soap- 
box and  become  militant.  He  appeals  only 
to  the  humanities.  It  is  unnecessary  death 
to  animals  that  he  deplores.  He  quotes 
William  Beebe,  the  noted  naturalist,  ex- 
plorer and  animal  "critic,"  who  once  said 
that  he  believes  a  man  could  go  to  sleep  in 
any  forest,  in  any  part  of  the  world,  and 
be  unmolested.  Provided  that  he  did  not, 
himself,  molest. 

Can't  Man  Kill  Humanely? 

MR.  ARLISS  asks,  merely — humanity. 
He  does  ask  that.     He  asks,   very 
specially,  mercy  in  the  method  of  killing.    He 


H 


would  wish  that  men  did  not  kill  to  eat, 
nor  kill  to  adorn  their  women-folk  with  the 
pelts  of  once-living  things.  He  deplores  the 
frightful  methods  of  the  slaughter  houses. 
He  asks  if  you — or  you — or  you  have  ever 
seen  animals  being  driven  to  their  deaths. 
He  wants  to  know  whether  you  have  ever 
seen,  with  your  own  eyes,  the  hideous  knowl- 
edge of  impending  slaughter  that  glares 
from  theirs.  He  says,  simply,  sternly,  "Of 
course,  they  know!" 

He  says,  in  discussing  the  right  or  wrong 
of  killing  for  food,  that  he  is  frequently  met 
with  the  argument  that  this  slaughter  is 
what  Nature  intended — that  all  animals 
prey,  the  one  upon  the  other.  But  we — we 
are  above  the  animal  kingdom.  We  are, 
we  claim,  superior.  We  are  differentiated 
by  intelligence  and  emotions.  What  better 
way  of  showing  this  differentiation  than  by 
NOT  killing  in  order  to  eat?  What  valid 
excuse  have  we  left,  since  it  has  been  clearly 
and  definitely  proved  by  vegetarians  that 
man  can  live  at  least  as  well  without  meat 
as  with  it? 

Even  more  emphatically  does  Mr.  Arliss 
feel  about  the  so-called  scientific  need  for 
vivisection — surgical  experimentation  on 
other  living  creatures.  This  casual  murder 
and  mutilation  of  countless  animals  has  been 
going  on,  he  reminded  me,  for  two  or  three 
thousand  years.  Where  has  it  led?  What, 
precisely,  have  we  gained  from  it?  What 
has  it  proved?  What  is  the  sum  total  of  all 
this  bloody  pain  and  conscious,  fearful 
death?  Time  and  again,  he  told  me,  valu- 
able discoveries  are  claimed  by  vivisection 
and  time  and  again  these  same  discoveries 
are  eventually  admitted  by  the  medical  pro- 
fession to  be  useless — or  worse.  In  fact, 
according  to  Mr.  Arliss,  the  scientist  has 
found  it  difficult  to  prove  that  any  impor- 
tant discovery  has  ever  been  made  through 
the  medium  or  agency  of  vivisection  of 
animals. 

He's  Against  Vaccinations 

MR.  ARLISS  most  definitely  does  NOT 
believe  in  serums  and  anti-toxins  and 
vaccines — grown  in  the  bodies  of  living  ani- 
mals. He  does  not  believe  in  shooting  the 
foul  stuffs  into  healthy  human  organisms 
on  the  remote  chance  that  these  healthy 
organisms  may,  at  some  future  date,  become 
infected  with  smallpox  or  diphtheria  or  ty- 
phoid. And  once  you  have  begun,  he  asks, 
where  are  you  to  stop?  After  being  inocu- 
lated with  serums  for  everything  from 
measles  to  the  pox,  you  might  reasonably 
expire  of  spinal  meningitis  or  some  other 
infection  of  the  central  nervous  system. 

Mr.  Arliss  believes  that  generally  im- 
proved sanitation  and  hygienic  conditions 
are  responsible  for  the  decreases  in  disease 
and  the  elimination  of  nationwide  plagues. 

He  believes,  this  Man  Who  Played  God, 
that  if  animals  had  never  been  used  for  ex- 
perimentation and  that  if  the  same  amount 
of  time  and  thought  and  money  had  been 
expended  upon  a  sane  study  of  the  human 
body,  itself,  we  should  be  far  more  advanced 
to-day  in  the  knowledge  of  human  diseases. 
And  even  assuming  that  certain  researches 
involving  vivisection  have  proved  valuable, 
Mr.  Arliss  denies  our  right  to  cause  such 
untold  suffering  for  our  own  ends.  Who  is 
to  say,  who  even  dares  to  say,  that  several 
million  beasts  must  suffer  that  Man  may  be 
saved? 

"We  should  not  kill!"  says  George  Arliss. 

But  if  it  must  take  Man  generations  more 
to  become  sensitized  to  slaughter,  then,  at 
the  best  and  least,  this  very  charming  man 
asks  that  we  kill  kindly,  swiftly,  mercifully, 
with  a  minimum  of  suffering  for  those  living 
things  who  die  that  we — that  we — well, 
what? 


George  Rafl  doesn'l  want  many  more 
pngster  roles.  He'd  like-  a  chance  al  a  ro- 
mantic r61e     and  believes  there's  a  reason 

why  he  could  play  it

Got  His  Start  Like  Gable 

AFTER  several  very  modest  roles, 
.  George  Brent  is  being  introduced  to 
the  public  in  support  of  three  big  women 
stars,  Barbara  Stanwyck,  with  whom  he 
appears  in  "So  Big,"  Ruth  Chatterton  in 
"The  Rich  Are  Always  with  Us"  and  with 
Constance  Bennett  in  a  picture  not  yet 
announced.  Gable,  you  remember,  burst 
upon  the  public  in  support  of  Norma 
Shearer,  Joan  Crawford  and  Greta  Garbo! 

Beyond  this  point  their  biographies 
swerve.  George  Brent  was  born  in  Dublin, 
Ireland,  the  son  of  a  Dublin  newspaperman 
and  the  descendant  of  a  long  line  of  Irish- 
men who  served  with  the  British  army.  His 
ancestry  is  evidenced  in  his  build;  he  is  tall, 
with  the  straight  back  and  build  of  the 
cavalryman. 

lie  attended  public  school  and  the  Nation- 
al University  in  Dublin,  playing  football 
ami  taking  part  in  the  school  dramatics. 
I  le  got  his  stage  start  at  the  famous  Abbey 
Theatre  in  Dublin.  After  a  bit  of  vaga- 
bonding, he  came  to  America  at  the  age  of 
twenty  and  entered  upon  a  stage  career 
here  via  various  stock  companies.  He  has 
played  more  than  three  hundred  parts  and 
has  owned  six  companies  of  his  own.  And 
iu>t  after  he  had  finally  landed  on  Broad- 
way, his  eyes  (strained  by  his  studying  so 
many  roles)  went  back  on  him;  after  a 
delicate  operation,  he  was  told  to  get  out 
in  the  open  air  for  a  few  months.  Like 
<  .able,  he  had  had  movie  ambitions  for  a 
lung  time.  He  headed  for  California — ami 
here  he  is.  all  set  lor  you  to  hail  or  argue  over 
in  comparison  to  Gable. 

Heyburn  Even  Has  Cleft  Chin 

THE  Fox  company  has  a  little  Gable  in 
their  fold  in  the  person  (and  appearance) 
of  Weldon  Heyburn,  who  fits  all  the  virility 
requirements  in  being  tall,  dark  and  even 
slightly  dimpled!  Believe  it  or  not,  but 
Heyburn  (who  recently  broke  into  the 
newspapers  by  marrying  Greta  Nissen)  is 
so  much  like  Gable  in  his  carriage  and  bear- 
ing that  Charlie  Farrell  took  him  to  a 
Hollywood  party  and  introduced  him  as 
"<  lark  ( .able."  And,  what's  more,  the  folks 
fell  for  Charlie's  gag.  Add  to  this  the  fact 
that  a  well-known  woman  writer,  crossing 
the  Fox  lot,  saw  Mr.  Heyburn  and  immedi- 
ately demanded  to  know  if  Clark  Gable  had 
been  borrowed  from  M-G-M  for  a  Fox  pic- 
ture. This  should  give  you  a  fair  slant  of 
how  well  Fox  has  succeeded  in  uncovering 
a  dimpled  menace. 

Like  Gable  and  Brent,  Heyburn  also 
came  from  what  is  rapidly  developing  into 
a  gold  mine  for  Gables — the  American  stock 
companies.  His  greatest  success  was  in  a 
road  tour  in  "What  Price  Glory?,"  in  which 
he  played  the  role  of  Sergeant  Quirt,  made 
famous  on  the  screen  by  Edmund  Lowe. 
Heyburn  is  twenty-six,  American,  educated 
at  the  University  of  Alabama  and  George 
Washington  University,  a  champion  diver 
and  a  "romantic  heavy."  (The  Gable 
touch  again.)  You  have  seen  him  in  "The 
Silent  Witness,"  "While  Paris  Sleeps," 
"The  Gay  Caballero,"  "Disorderly  Con- 
duct" and  "Careless  Lady."  His  parts  are 
getting  bigger  and  better  all  the  time. 

Bruce  Cabot  and  Chaney's  Son 

RKO  is  doing  itself  proud  by  having  two 
screen  candidates  roughly  described  as 
"somewhat  the  same  type  as  Gable." 
Bruce  Cabot  and  Creighton  Chaney,  son  of 
the  late  Lon  Chaney,  are  the  lucky  gentle- 
men. 

Considering  Bruce  Cabot  first,  we  find 
that,  like  Gable,  Brent  and  Heyburn — yes, 
he  also  comes  from  stock  engagements  to 


the  screen.  His  last  stage  engagement  was 
with  the  Goodman  Theatre  in  Chicago — at 
which  time  his  name  was  Jacques  de  Bujac. 
Though  he  was  born  in  Carlsbad,  New  Mex- 
ico, thus  automatically  becoming  an  Amer- 
ican citizen,  he  is  of  French  descent.  He 
was  educated  in  the  schools  of  Carlsbad, 
New  York  and  Paris.  What's  more,  he  is 
the  son  of  a  wealthy  New  Mexico  attorney 
and  what's  even  more,  he  is  listed  in  the 
Blue  Book  of  Baltimore.  De  Bujac  became 
interested  in  the  stage  during  his  school 
years,  and  in  the  movies  during  his  final 
appearances  with  the  Goodman  Stock 
company.  He  came  out  to  Hollywood  and 
talking  pictures  just  on  a  chance,  not  a 
contract,  managed  to  get  a  test  with  RKO 
and  was  promptly  signed.  Such  luck  can 
be  traced  only  to  one  thing — Bruce  Cabot 
(no  longer  Jacques  de  Bujac)  must  be 
decidedly  a  Gable  type.  He  gets  his  screen 
start  in  "The  Roadhouse  Murder." 

On  the  other  hand,  RKO's  new  pride  and 
joy,  Creighton  Chaney,  manages  to  be  a 
distinctive  runner-up  on  the  other  Gables  in 
that  he  has  never  appeared  either  in  stock 
or  in  the  movies  previous  to  his  new  con- 
tract. He  is  a  strapping,  handsome  boy, 
whose  only  resemblance  to  Gable  is  in  a 
mutual  "he-mannishness."  Creighton  looks 
more  as  his  father,  Lon  Chaney,  looked  ten 
years  ago. 

At  the  beginning,  when  Creighton  decided 
to  follow  in  his  father's  footsteps,  studios 
were  after  him  with  contracts,  providing  he 
would  permit  himself  to  be  billed  as  "Lon 
Chaney,  Jr."  This  the  independent  young 
man  refused  to  do.  He  not  only  reminded 
them  that  "there  was  only  one  Lon  Chaney," 
but  pointed  out  that  he  wanted  to  succeed 
on  his  own  individual  merits  or  not  at  all. 
RKO  was  the  first  studio  to  see  things  his 
way,  and  signed  him  to  a  contract.  He  will 
be  known  as  Creighton  Chaney;  the 
"Lon  Chaney,  Jr.,"  idea  is  definitely  out. 
You'll  get  your  first  glimpse  of  him  in  the 
Dolores  Del  Rio  picture,  "Bird  of  Paradise." 

The  studio  announces  that  young  Chaney 
is  not  promised  featured  or  starring  roles, 
but  will  be  given  ample  opportunity  to 
demonstrate  his  own  way  as  an  actor.  In 
spite  of  this,  however,  there  are  rumors  that 
two  associate  producers  are  quietly  mapping 
ambitious  parts  for  the  young  man  in  com- 
ing productions,  parts  somewhat  along  the 
Gable  lines. 

Univeral's  Big  Discovery 

FROM  over  the  hills  at  Universal,  they 
are  calling  your  attention  to  Luis  Tren- 
ker,  appearing  with  Tala  Birell  in  "The 
Doomed  Battalion."  Mr.  Trenker  is  -an 
Austrian,  a  celebrated  figure  both  as  an 
actor  and  a  producer  in  European  film  cir- 
cles, and  he  happened  to  come  to  Hollywood 
as  follows: 

"Uncle"  Carl  Laemmle  was  touring  Eu- 
rope with  a  weather  eye  turned  toward 
European  film  productions,  when  his  atten- 
tion was  directed  to  a  spectacular  production 
called  "Mountains  In  Flame,"  dealing  with 
warfare  in  the  Alps.  Mr.  Laemmle  saw  this 
film,  literally  had  his  breath  swept  away  by 
the  daring  and  magnitude  of  some  of  its 
scenes,  and  bought  the  American  rights  to 
the  film.  The  guiding  spirit  behind  this 
thrilling  production — its  author,  producer 
and  star — was  Luis  Trenker.  So  impressed 
was  Mr.  Laemmle  by  his  performance  that 
he  asked  him  to  come  to  America  for  the 
English  version  of  the  picture  (now  called 
"The  Doomed  Battalion").  Trenker,  a 
dark  heavy-set  man  of  unusually  forceful 
appearance,  gladly  accepted,  and  is  co- 
featured  with  Tala  Birell. 

His  background  is  extremely  interesting. 
Though  college-bred,  he  preferred  the  life 


A  second    new   he-man    at   Universal   is 

Russell    Hopton — built   along    the   Gable 

lines,  anJ  due  for  Gable-si:e  roles 

of  the  gTeat  outdoors  and  was,  for  years,  a 
tourist's  guide  in  the  Alps.  During  the 
War,  he  was  in  command  of  a  company 
stationed  in  the  "flaming  mountains"  and 
it  was  this  experience  that  formed  the  basis 
of  his  screen  story. 

Several  years  after  the  War,  he  was  en- 
gaged by  a  foreign  motion  picture  company 
to  act  as  their  guide  for  the  Alpine  se- 
quences. During  the  production  of  the  film, 
the  director  became  impatient  with  the 
leading  man,  who  was  giving  a  very  bad 
performance,  and  in  desperation  offered  to 
give  Trenker  an  opportunity  in  the  role. 
He  made  good,  became  vitally  interested  in 
the  acting  profession  and  abandoned  his 
tourist  activities  to  take  on  a  film  career. 
He  has  been  outstanding  in  European  film 
circles  ever  since. 

I'niversal  has  Trenker  signed  for  only 
this  one  production — but  from  what  we 
casually  overheard  on  the  "U"  lot  just  the 
other  day,  we  have  a  hunch  that  he  will 
remain  for  others.  The  magic  phrase  pro- 
nounced upon  Mr.  Trenker  was  none  other 
than  this: 

lie-  doesn't  look  like  Clark  Gable,  and 
he's  older — but  he  could  play  the  same  type 
of  role!" 

Hopton  Just  Discovered 

BUT  Trenker  isn't  the  only  new  hope  at 
Universal.  The  Laemmles  also  "point 
with  pride"  to  Russell  Hopton,  who  has 
ippearing  before  the  cameras  since 
"Call  of  the  Flesh,"  but  is  just  being  dis- 
'I.  lie  is  thirty  (a  year  younger  than 
Gable),  tall,  with  the  same  sort  of  broad  he- 
man  smile  and  broad  he-man  shoulders. 

Russell  is  the  son  ol  a  wealthy  New  York 
family,  whose  father  wanted  him  to  become 
a  lawyer.  Instead,  he  went  to  agricultural 
School  (he-mannish,  even  then),  and  when 
the  War  came  along,  faked  his  age  and 
joined  the  Navy.  After  the  War,  he  sold 
Rim  lor  Universal,  proved  himself  a  good 
salesman,  and  decided  to  turn  actor.

CHOCOLATE 


Ttie  SYRUP   that  created 

a  MILLION-GALLON 

^Appetite  Of  all  the  tempting  drinks 
and  delightful  dishes  served  at  Rexall 
Fountains,  those  flavored  with  chocolate  are  by 
far  the  favorites.  It's  easy  to  understand  why. 

Fully  $50,000  was  spent  in  perfecting  the 
formula  for  the  chocolate  syrup  used  by  these 
Fountains.  Many  world  markets  were  searched 
for  cocoa  beans  of  proper  color,  flavor, 
richness  and  cocoa-butter  content.  Then  blend 
after  blend  was  tried,  tasted  and  discarded  — 
until  the  most  delicious  one  was  found! 

This  chocolate  syrup — perfected  at  great 
expense  after  countless  formulas  had  been 
rejected  —  now  has  created  a  million-gallon 
appetite.  Every  year,  more  than  100,000,000 
delicious  chocolate  drinks  flavored  with  this 
pure  syrup  are  served  exclusively  at  Rexall 
Fountains  in  Rexall  Drug  Stores. 

Only  at  a  Rexall  Fountain  can  you  enjoy 
the  $50,000  chocolate  flavor.  Liggett  and  Owl 
Fountains  are  Rexall  Fountains,  too.

fifteen  pictures,  at  seven  different  studios. 
His  latest  is  "Radio  Patrol."  His  next  will 
be  "Shanghai  Interlude."  He's  headed  for 
some  big  roles — Gable-size  roles. 

And  Don't  Forget  These  Boys 

/CONSIDERING    the    hullabaloo    they 

V j  made  about  the  discovery  of  Marlene 

Dietrich  (and  rightly,  too!),  the  boys  at 
Paramount  are  showing  amazing  sell-re- 
straint about  their  newest  "find,"  Randolph 
Scott.  They  aren't  even  hinting  that  he's 
"another  Gable."  For  one  thing,  he's  blond; 
for  another  thing,  he  resembles  Gary  Cooper 
more  than  he  does  Gable.  He's  a  young 
Virginian,  smooth,  looks  like  an  outdoor 
type,  and  has  a  smile  you  can't  resist.  And 
when  a  connoisseur  like  Mrs.  \  incent  Astor 
conies  right  out  in  public  and  says  that 
Randolph  is  the  handsomest  man  in  Holly- 
wood, he's  obviously  a  real  "find"! 

Moreover,  like  Gable  and  Brent  and  most 
of  the  other  big-time  newcomers,  he  hails 
from  stock  companies.  And,  after  only  two 
minor  screen  roles  (in  "Sky  Bride"  and  "A 
Successful  Calamity"),  he  is  to  be  starred 
in  a  series  of  outdoor,  he-man  stories  by 
Will  James,  famous  cowboy-author,  the 
first  of  which  is  "Lone  Cowboy."  Sort  of 
holding  back  on  the  heavy  publicity,  maybe 
Paramount  is  hoping  to  spring  a  surprise 
on  the  public — the  way  Gable,  himself,  was 
sprung.  And  maybe  steal  some  of  the  Gable 
thunder.    Time  will  tell! 

And  then,  of  course,  don't  forget  Johnny 
YVeissmuller — who  proved,  in  "Tarzan,  the 
Ape  Man,"  that  he  has  the  greatest  phy- 
sique in  the  movies,  and  also  proved  himself 
an  actor.  After  a  personal  appearance  tour, 
he  will  be  back  in  Hollywood  to  make  a 
sequel  to  the  picture. 

Heaven  forbid  such  a  thing! — but  if,  by 
any  chance,  something  should  suddenly  cut 
short  or  interrupt  the  blazing  Gable  career, 
even  his  own  studio,  M-G-.M,  thus  has  "an- 
other Gable"  right  on  hand! 

Locking  Them  Over 

United  from  page  65) 

representatives.  Probably  Joan  remembered 
all  the  criticism  that  attended  Connie's 
wedding  when  the  press  boys  stood  outside 
the  house  in  the  cold.  The  younger  Bennett 
didn't  repeat  on  that  error.  The  "represen- 
tatives" almost  outnumbered  the  guests. 

The  wedding  took  place  at  the  Town 
House  and  a  small  army  of  people  had  col- 
lected outside  to  see  what  there  was  to  be 
seen.  Constance  Bennett  and  Marion 
Davies  got  enormous  "hands"  as  they 
dashed  through  the  crowd  and,  later  on, 
both  Joan  and  Connie  tossed  their  bouquets 
down  to  the  onlookers. 

Joan  wore  a  white  suit  trimmed  in  white 
fox  (in  honor  of  her  studio?),  with  a  small 
white  velvet  turban.  Her  bouquet  was  of 
white  orchids  and  lilies  of  the  valley. 

YEP,  they  keep  coming,  those  "inside" 
stories  on  "Grand  Hotel" — even  though 
the  picture  is  now  released.  Here  is  another 
to  add  to  your  long  list: 

Before  John  Barrymore  started  to  work 
on  the  picture,  and  before  he  had  met  Garbo, 
he  had  his  mind  pretty  well  made  up  that 
he  wasn't  going  to  like  her.  He  had  a 
hunch  Greta  would  be  "backing  him  up" 
into  the  camera  so  that  only  his  neck 
would  show,  and  performing  any  number  of 
other  professional  tricks — all  to  the  dis- 
advantage of  Mr.  John  Barrymore.  The 
first  day  of  shooting,  he  marched  out  on  the 
set  in  a  highly  belligerent  manner,  a  sort  of 
I-dare-you-to-get-fresh-with-me-rvehnown-all- 
the-tricks-before-you-  ever  -  heard-of-  a  -  camera 
attitude. 

He  looked  about  the  set  .  .  .  and  there 
was  no  Garbo.  "Humph,"  he  thought, 
"late!"

JUNE  COLLYER  and  Mary  Brian  have 
become  the  best  of  friends,  and  recently 
when  they  were  both  in  New  York,  they 
saw  a  great  deal  of  one  another. 

There  was  a  time  when  June  and  Mary 
weren't  so  clubby.  That  was  back  in  the 
old  days  when  Buddy  Rogers  was  America's 
Beau  and  Buddy  just  couldn't  seem  to  make 
up  his  mind  whom  he  was  beau-ing  . .  .June 
or  Mary.  The  girls  seemed  to  have  some 
little  difficulty  recognizing  each  other  when 
they  passed  on  the  Paramount  lot. 

But  what  with  June  very  much  settled 
down  as  \hx  Stuart  Erwin  and  Mary 
romantically  interested  in  Ken  Murray  (with 
whom  she  has  been  appearing  in  vaudeville), 
there  is  no  reason  why  the  girls  shouldn't  be 
friends — and  they  are.  Wonder  if  it's  true 
that  they  attended  an  afternoon  perform- 
ance of  Buddy's  show  ("Hot-Cha!")  together 
while  they  were  in  New  York? 


WHAT    a    flock    of    marriages    lately! 
iop    of   the    Ann    Dvorak-Leslie 
Fenton    elopement  comes  Hetty  Bronson's 
marriage.    She  is  now  legally  Mrs.  Ludwig 
Lauerhaus,  which   is  an  awful  lot  of  name 
nch  a  little  girl  as  Betty. 

"Peter  Pan"  Bronson  met  Lauerhaus 
v.  bib-  visiting  her  brother  three  years  ago 
at  Oxford.  Lauerhaus,  at  that  time  a 
student  at  Heidelberg  University,  met  her 
in  London  and  they  became  secretly  en- 
gaged. 

The  youngsters  were  married   in   Santa 
Barbara,  '  alifornia,  and  after  a  short  honey- 
moon spent  at  Asln-\  ille,  N.  ('.,  the  hoi 
the  groom,  they  will  return  to   Hollywood, 
Where  Betty  will  resume  her  screen  work.

FAT 


Does  Go 
In    This 

Easy    Way 


Millions  of  people,  the  world  over,  have 
learned  in  late  years  the  right  way  to  keep 
slender.  To  gain  new  beauty,  youth  and 
vigor.  You  see  that  everywhere.  Excess 
fat  and  sluggish  vim  are  nowhere  near  so 
common  as  they  were. 

The  great  reason  is  this:  Modern  medi- 
cal science  has  discovered  a  great  cause  of 
excess  lat.  It  lies  in  a  scanty  gland  secre- 
tion. Food  which  should  create  fuel  and 
energy  goes  to  excess  fat. 

Now  doctors,  the  world  over,  supply 
that  lacking  factor.  And  note  how  condi- 
tions have  changed. 

This  right  method  is  embodied  in  Mar- 
mola  prescription  tablets.  A  medical  lab- 
orntOTy,  famous  the  world  over,  prepares 
them  for  this  purpose.  They  supply  this 
right  method  at  small  cost,  in  right  form. 

Marmola  has  been  used  for  24  years — 
millions  of  boxes  of  it.  It  stands  today,  as 
always,  the  chief  help  in  reduction.  Now 
there  are  multitudes  of  people  to  testify 
what  Marmola  has  done  for  them. 

If  your  figure  is  abnormal,  if  your  vim 
has  decreased,  go  get  Marmola.  All  drug- 
gists supply  it  at  $1  a  box.  A  book  in  each 
box  gives  the  formula  and  explains  the 
amazing  results.  Do  what  others  have 
done — get  the  results  they  won.  Don't 
wait  longer — don't  stav  over-fat.

The  Trials  of  a  Hollywood  Ex- Wife 


(Continued  from  page  25) 


living  by  teaching  hopeful  youngsters  to 
move  and  speak  correctly,  as  she  had  once 
taught  Clark.  (That  was  how  they  met.) 
One  of  the  best  dramatic  coaches  in  Holly- 
wood, she  did  not  have  the  money  to  ad- 
vertise or  move  into  an  imposing  "studio." 
She  asked  no  help  from  anyone.  For  two 
years  she  had-  not  seen,  or  heard  from,  her 
ex-husband. 

Josephine  Dillon,  herself,  is  a  graduate  of 
Stanford  University,  and  reflects  culture  and 
good  breeding.  But  she  was  a  woman  alone 
and  poor  and  therefore  (thought  the  sensa- 
tion-gatherers) easily  dealt  with.  The 
studio  biography  of  Clark  Gable  made  dull 
reading;  the  man  himself,  though  pleasant 
and  charming,  was  "bad  copy."  So  the  sob 
sisters,  the  headline-hunters,  the  corres- 
pondents for  the  sensation  syndicates  set 
out  to  get  "the  lowdown "  about  Clark 
Gable  from  his  ex-wife. 

They  got  exactly  nothing. 

Tried  to  Play  on  Her  Emotions 

THE  story  of  Josephine  Dillon's  persecu- 
tion by  yellow  journalism  is  almost 
incredible.  In  a  civilized  community,  with 
policemen  pacing  the  Boulevard  not  a  hun- 
dred feet  away,  she  was  threatened  and 
browbeaten,  terrified  and  insulted.  In  her 
inexperience,  she  trustingly  admitted  these 
wolves  in  writers'  clothing  into  her  plain, 
prim,  clean  little  living  room.  But  her 
gentle  answers  to  their  questions,  her  mild 
little  reminiscences  of  hours  of  hard  work 
with  Clark  Gable,  and  her  generous  praise 
of  him  were  not  what  they  were  looking  for, 
not  what  they  wanted. 

They  tried  devious  and  diabolically  clever 
ways  to  get  their  stories.  Some  of  them — of 
the  feminine  gender — sympathized  with  her 
disarmingly,  a  process  known  as  "taking 
down  their  back  hair."  Others  tried  to  trap 
her  into  statements  that  would  lend  sensa- 
tional color  to  their  articles.  One  seasoned 
newspaper  man,  who  had  exhausted  every 
trick  in  his  repertoire  to  get  her  to  reveal 
some  of  the  secrets  of  her  married  life,  de- 
cided to  arouse  her  anger  against  Clark. 
He  whirled  on  her  suddenly. 

"Look  at  yourself!"  he  shouted.  "A 
poor,  miserable  woman,  living  in  this 
wretched  shack,  while  he  has  a  fine  apart- 
ment! Look  at  your  shabby  clothes!  Look 
at  your  shoes!"  He  pointed  a  scornful 
finger.  "How  do  you  feel  when  he  rides  by 
in  a  limousine?  Why,  I'll  bet  you  haven't 
the  price  of  a  square  meal  in  the  house  this 
minute!" 

But  for  all  her  quiet  voice  and  ladylike 
ways,  Josephine  Dillon  is  a  clever  woman. 
"Oh,  I'm  not  so  poor  I  can't  buy  a  ticket  to 
see  a  Clark  Gable  picture!"  she  answered, 
smiling. 

Mostly,  however,  they  tried  bullying. 
They  threatened  her.  They  told  her  that 
they  would  find  ways  to  take  away  her 
pupils,  unless  she  gave  them  "hot"  stories. 
When  she  said  with  dignity  that  she  had  no 
complaints  to  make  against  Mr.  Gable,  that 
she  had  only  kind  things  to  say  of  him, 
praise  for  his  persistence  and  determination 
to  succeed,  and  admiration  for  his  work  on 
the  screen,  one  man  sneered  in  her  face. 

How  She  Was  Threatened 
"T  ISTEX,  you  can't  tamper  with   a   re- 

J_^  porter  this  way!"  he  snarled.  "You 
can't  make  a  fool  of  me!  You  know  you 
weren't  his  first  wife,  don't  you?  Why 
don't  you  admit  it?  Who  was  his  first  wife? 
Where  is  she  now?  Tell  me,  do  you  hear 
me?" 

"I  know  only  one  thing,"  she  answered. 
"I  was  Clark  Gable's  wife." 

His  face   was   actually   red   with   anger. 


"If  you  don't  talk,  you  are  going  to  be 
sorry!  Has  he  a  son?  The  public  wants  to 
hear  everything  about  Gable.  Give  me 
something  worth  reading — has  he  a  son?" 

She  stood  her  ground.  "AH  I  can  tell 
you,"  she  said,  "is  that  I  have  never  had  a 
son." 

As  he  left,  baffled,  he  shouted  back  at  her, 
"You'll  be  sorry  for  holding  out  on  me. 
Read  my  article  and  see  how  I  am  going  to 
treat  you.  Maybe  next  time  you'll  talk." 
When,  several  weeks  later,  she  did  read  the 
article  he  had  written,  she  discovered  that 
he  had  made  damaging  insinuations  about 
her  teaching  ability — so  damaging  that  she 
lost  several  pupils  on  account  of  it. 

A  woman  who  had  been  a  lifelong  friend 
and  had  known  her  during  her  six  years  of 
marriage  called  her  up  one  day  and  asked 
permission  to  write  an  article  about  her 
methods  of  voice  training,  signing  her  name 
to  it.  Unsuspectingly,  she  consented,  and 
thought  no  more  about  it,  until  a  month  or 
two  later  the  same  woman  came  to  see  her. 

"The  magazine  wouldn't  take  the  article." 
she  told  her.  "They  said  it  was  too 
dangerous." 

"Dangerous!"  said  Josephine,  shocked. 
"Why,  what  do  you  mean?  What  did  you 
write?  You  told  me  it  was  to  be  about  my 
teaching  methods." 

"  Yes,  of  course  I  did,"  admitted  her 
friend,  coolly.  "But  they  wanted  inside 
gossip  about  your  marriage,  and  /  needed 
the  money — " 

Had  to  Ask  Studio's  Help 

WITHOUT  friends  to  trust,  without 
protection,  or  money  to  hire  lawyers, 
she  at  last  turned  for  help  to  the  studio 
where  Clark  Gable  was  working. 

"There  was  a  writer  for  a  newspaper 
syndicate  who  came  to  me,"  she  relates. 
"  He  didn't  ask  for  a  story.  He  had  a  story 
already — had  obtained  it  in  New  York. 
All  he  wanted  was  for  me  to  admit  that  his 
story  was  true.  I  denied  it,  over  and  over. 
He  was  so  violent  that  I  was  terrified.  He 
went  away,  and  came  back  the  next  evening 
— late.  I  told  him  again  that  his  story 
wasn't  true.  Finally,  he  looked  at  me. 
'Miss  Dillon',  he  asked,  'your  father  was  a 
lawyer,  wasn't  he?'  I  said, 'Yes.'  He  looked 
at  me  bitterly  and  said,  'I  thought  so. 
Because  you  are  the  most  artful  dodger  I've 
ever  met.  But  how  long  do  you  think  you 
can  get  away  with  it?' 

"After  he  had  left,  I  couldn't  sleep.  The 
next  day,  I  went  to  the  studio  and  told 
them  they  must  protect  me.  I  told  them 
that  I  had  never  said  anything  unkind 
about  Clark  and  that  I  never  intended  to  do 
so.  But  I  couldn't  stand  this  persecution 
any  longer.  Since  then  they  have  dealt 
with  the  people  who  came  to  interview  me." 

But  even  this  plan  did  not  spare  her. 

In  the  March  12  issue  of  a  national  weekly 
appeared  a  purported  "close-up"  of  Clark 
Gable  by  a  writer  of  some  reputation.  In  it 
were  cruel  references  to  Josephine  Dillon. 
Her  ability  as  a  stage  teacher  was  subtly, 
cuttingly  doubted.  "You  probably  remem- 
ber your  elocution  teacher  in  high  school," 
the  author  sneered.  Fun  was  poked  at  her 
methods,  and  credit  for  Clark's  training  was 
flatly  denied  her  in  these  words:  "  If  anyone 
made  Clark  Gable  a  good  actor,  it  wasn't 
Josephine  Dillon." 

Josephine's  Costly  "Mistake" 

THOUSANDS  read  this,  but  none  knew 
of  the  telephone  conversation  that  pre- 
ceded it.  One  evening  the  writer  of  that 
"close-up"  called  Josephine  Dillon  on  the 
telephone  and  asked  for  her  story  of  Clark 
Gable.

Wouldn't  Talk  About  Boris 

PAULINE  KARLOFF'S  story  of  persecu- 
tion by  the  prying  yellow  press  is  very 
similar  to  Josephine  Dillon's.  Ever  since 
"Frankenstein"  was  released,  she  has  been 
besieged  by  sensation-mongers,  on  the  trail 
of  a  startling  story  of  her  life  as  Mrs. 
Karloff  (or,  to  be  entirely  correct,  as  Mrs. 
William  Henry  Pratt).  She,  too,  had  an 
intimate  friend  come  to  her  and  beg  her  for 
a  story.  When  she  refused  to  give  her  one, 
the  friend  became  defiant. 

"After  all,  I've  got  enough  already  to 
make  a  good  article,"  she  said.  "You  know 
the  things  you've  told  me.  And  you  know 
how  hard  up  I  am!" 

"I'm  hard  up,  too,"  said  Pauline,  "but 
not  hard  up  enough  for  that.  If  you  dare 
to  print  one  word  I've  ever  told  you,  I'll  sue 
you  for  libel!" 

Ever  since  her  divorce  from  Karloff  three 
years  ago,  his  ex-wife  has  supported  herself 
precariously  by  painting  charming  ami 
fantastic  women  in  the  modern  manner  and 
renting  her  pictures  to  studios  for  modern- 
istic settings  in  films.  There  have  been 
times — she  laughs  a  little  mirthlessly — 
when  she  literally  did  not  know  where  her 
next  meal  was  coining  from.  But  when  one 
of  the  largest  Sunday  newspapers  in  the 
country  recently  offered  her  five  hundred 
dollars,  and  then  increased  the  offer  to  one 
thousand,  for  a  personally  signed  story 
about  Boris  Karloff,  she  refused. 

"As  an  artist,  i  wish  success  to  a  fellow 
artist,"  she  says.  "  lint  why  must  they  drag 
me  into  thi-.'  I  have  been  out  of  his  life-  for 
three  years.  When  we  meet  on  the  Boule- 
vard, we  don't  speak." 

Karloff    had    lived    in     I  loll'. 
twenty  years  before  his  ghastly,  unforget  tal  lie 
characterization  ol  the  Monster  in  "Frank- 
enstein "  aroused  any  public  curiosity  about 
him.    And  yet  so  CO  tely  are  the  strug- 

gling   unknowns    submerged    and    lost    in 
Hollywood's  teeming  life  that  there  an 
who  know  what  manner  of  man  hi-  . 
those  years  of  struggle.     Mis  ex-wife 
perhaps,    die  only  one   who   really   knew. 
So  she  is  being  threatened,  persecuted  by 
sensation-hunters — who  are  trying  to  make 
her  tell. 

Sudden  success  on  the  screen  may  mean 
caviar  and  pheasant  for  the  tables  of  the 
new  stars,  but  it  often  means  taking  tie 
bread  away  from   their  genei  iu     e: 
Who  refuse  l"  tell.    Josephine   Dillon  Gable 
and  Pauline  Karloff  will  tell  anybody  THIS!

Our  Hollywood  Neighbors 

(Continued  from  page  12) 

HO-HUM,  you  should  be  glad  you're  not 
a  movie  star.  Just  look  at  all  the 
trouble  Joan  Crawford  had  during  the  mak- 
ing of  '  'Letty  Lynton."  One  of  her  evening 
dresses  was  so  tight  across  the  er-ah, 
equator,  that  she  couldn't  sit  down  at  all. 
Some  special  contraption  had  to  be  de- 
signed, called  ''the  reclining  board."  Joan 
just  leaned  against  it,  and  it  could  be 
lowered  half  way  to  the  floor.  It  didn't  look 
comfortable  and  it  wasn't. 

DURING  the  same  picture  Joan's  dress- 
ing room  bungalow  figured  in  a  most 
amazing  disappearing  act.  The  floors  of  one 
of  the  M-G-M  stages  can  be  lowered  to  the 
basement,  and,  one  day,  the  lowering  proc- 
ess was  used  rather  unexpectedly.  Down 
went  the  floor,  Joan's  bungalow,  her  per- 
sonal maid  and  all. 

Probably  Joan  would  still  be  looking  for 
the  bungalow,  a  gift  from  Doug  Jr.,  but  it 
happened  that  the  maid  had  good  lungs. 

No  wonder  that  Joan  announced  that  she 
was  going  away  for  a  two  weeks  vacation  after 
that  picture  was  completed.  She  needed  a 
rest. 

THE  best  economy  story  of  the  month 
concerns  the  independent  producer,  try- 
ing to  make  pictures  on  a  very  slim  shoe- 
string of  credit.  A  stuttering  comedian  had 
been  engaged  for  a  role,  and  all  seemed  to  be 
going  well  until  the  executive  walked  on  the 
set.  He  watched  the  antics  of  the  stutterer 
for  a  very  short  time,  and  then  he  began  to 

'  'Stop,"  he  yelled  to  the  director.  '  'Have 
that  comic  play  his  role  straight.  The 
stuttering  uses  too  much  film." 

NO  DOUBT  about  it— the  one  thing 
]  lullywood  doesn't  want  is  privacy. 
<  If  course  that  was  all  nicely  proved  long 
ago  when  Malibu  Beach  became  the  favorite 
summering  place  for  the  stars.  Additional 
proof  is  furnished  in  the  report  that  the  far- 
famed  Embassy  Club  will  close. 

It  was  all  to  be  very  high  flown,  very 
exclusive  and  awfully  swanky,  this  club. 
Only  members  could  lunch  and  dine  there. 
It  started  well.  The  stars  flocked  there  at 
first,  and  the  tables  were  always  filled. 
Then  it  became  apparent  that  something 
was  lacking.  What  was  it?  Ah,  yes,  there 
were  no  admiring  visitors  from  Dubuque, 
and  no  one  came  up  and  requested  auto- 
graphs. Attendance  began  to  drop  off,  and 
the  Embassy-ites  began  to  show  up  at  the 
Brown  Derby,  open  to  anyone  who  had 
the  price  of  a  luncheon. 

The  Derby  is  now  the  current  hot  spot 
along  the  Hollywood  rialto.  It's  crowded 
with  fame  every  noontime,  and  if  you're 
lucky  you  can  step  on  George  Bancroft's 
pet  corn,  and  get  a  good  close-up  of  Loretta 
Young. 

But  is  it  private  and  exclusb-e?  A  secret 
whispered  at  one  table  circles  the  cafe  in 
less  time  than  it  takes  Doug  Fairbanks,  the 
elder,  to  jump  over  a  grand  piano. 

ALTHOUGH  it  is  an  old  story  now,  the 
ilAnn  Harding  and  Harry  Bannister 
announcement  that  a  divorce  was  in  the 
offing  proved  to  be  the  biggest  bombshell  of 
the  year.  Everyone  was  stunned.  Those 
two  had  been  regarded  as  the  screen's  most 
ideally  happy  married  couple.  After  the 
first  excitement  had  died  down  a  bit,  it  was 
very  amusing  to  see  the  good  folk,  who 
can't  bear  to  be  left  out  of  it,  trying  to  ex- 
plain that  they  knew  it  all  along. 

The  Boulevard  gossips  will  forgive  Harry 
and  Ann  for  getting  a  divorce,  but  never, 
never  for  denying  them  the  privilege  of  a  lot 
of  preliminary  scandal-mongering. 


From  the  brilliant  and  stately  era 
of  John  Drew  down  to  the  present 
scintillatina  and  brittle  period  of 
Noel  Coward  the  leajina  actors, 
playwriolds  and  novelists  have 
always  felt  the  lure  of  Tub 
Algonquin. 


The  Players 

and  the 

Christmas  Dinner 

This  story  sounds  as  if  O.  Henry  made  it  up 
but  it  happens  to  be  true.  A  struggling 
young  couple  of  players  came  to  stay  at 
The  Algonquin.  They  were  "resting"  at 
the  time  and  paying  their  room  rent  was  a 
major  test  in  economics.  Dallying  with 
The  Algonquin  menus  was  out  of  the 
question.  They  were  compelled  to  import 
their  daily  quota  of  calories  from  neighbor- 
ing delicatessens.  By  this  kind  of  dietetics 
they  were  able  to  pay  their  rent,  preserve 
their  lithe  figures  and  keep  their  heads  up. 
On  Christmas  Eve  the  plucky  couple  jour- 
neyed forth  for  the  usual  sliced  ham,  rye 
bread  and  pickles.  When  they  had  guiltily 
smuggled  this  feast  to  their  room  they 
'phoned  for  a  pot  of  coffee.  After  the  ban- 
quet was  over  they  sent  for  the  check.  The 
knock  came.   The  waiter  entered. 

"The  check,  please,"  said  the  husband 
airily, 

"Check?"  echoed  the  waiter.  "There  is 
no  check.  Don't  you  know  that  Mr.  Case 
plays  host  to  everyone  in  the  hotel  on 
Christmas  Eve?  You  ought  to  see  the 
dinner  some  of  the  guests  are  eating  to- 
night." 


Tub  Algonquin  is  situated  at 
59  Went  44Ui  St.,  midway 
between  Gt.h  Ave-,  and  Times 
Square. 


LOVE  CHARM 

Prf  PERFUME 

Jrerfume  brings  pe- 
culiar and  subtle  psychological  reactions  on  the 
human  emotions.  The  enchantresses  of  old  — 
Cleopatra  —Du  Barry — understood  this  magic 
power.  Stars  of  screenland  are  inspired  by  real- 
istic odeurs.  Certainly  a  man's  idea  of  a  woman's 
charm  may  easily  be  changed  with  the  proper 
perfume.  That  Love  Charm  is  such  we  ask  you  to 
prove  to  yourself.  Send  lCc  for  sample  vial.  Love

There  is  still  plenty  of  romance  to  be 
found  along  Poverty  Row.  Only,  it  isn't 
Poverty  Row  any  longer.  The  independents 
•t  this  year  while 
major  studios  are  wondering  what  to  do 
with  all  ol  their  theatres. 

WHILE  I'm  on  the  subject  of  leading 
ladies  in  western  pictures,  one  occa- 
sional actress  who  married  plenty  of  money, 
gave  quite  a  shock  to  a  well-known  cowboy 
star. 

The  lady  didn't  need  the  cash,  but  she 
hadn't  worked  lately.  Then,  too,  she  just 
loved  the  smell  of  greasepaint.  A  trille 
icendingly,  it  is  true,  she  consented  to 
be  leading  woman  in  an  opera  of  the  cow 
country. 

tion  was  selected,  and  the 
lady  arrived  in  her  imported  limousine,  and 
i  liveried  chauffeur  in  attendance, 
re  a  I'aris  frock  and  some  S50.000  in 
jewelry.  To  make  the  whole  thing  even 
more  difficult  for  the  western  star,  an  lion- 
est-to-gosh  cowboy,  she  derided  an  off- 
screen romance  would  pass  away  the  dull

Looking  Them  Over 

{Continued  from  page  77) 

THE  premiere  of  "The  Wet  Parade" 
began  like  all  other  "first  nights"  at 
Grauman's  Chinese  Theatre.  There  were 
motor  cars,  searchlights,  beautiful  women 
in  beautiful  clothes,  and  the  usual  en- 
thusiastic crowd. 

But  at  the  intermission  the  festivities 
took  on  the  form  of  a  public  debating 
society.  The  pro  and  con  arguments  about 
this  picture  swept  the  audience  into  a  frenzy 
of  praise  or  stark  criticism  that  exploded 
orally  at  intermission.  Sid  Grauman  had 
erected  a  small  bar  in  the  courtyard  where 
cheese  and  near  beer  were  being  dished  out 
to  the  throats  made  dry  by  argument. 

Saw  Marlene  Dietrich  in  the  milling 
crowd,  looking  startlingly  beautiful  in  a 
white  evening  wrap  trimmed  with  white  fox. 
She  was  talking  enthusiastically  to  an  un- 
known gentleman — but  Josef  von  Sternberg 
was  not  far  away. 

Fay  Wray  looked  like  a  modern  Juliet 
with  a  small  sequin  cap  of  blue  making  an 
effective  contrast  to  her  long  auburn  bob. 

Maureen  O'Sullivan  was  with  Russell 
Gleason. 

Billy  Bakewell  escorted  Polly  Ann  Young, 
pretty  sister  of  Loretta. 


CONNIE   BENNETT  has    been  having 
fun    going    to    the    dentist's.     That's 
almost  a  believe-it-or-not-note  for  Ripley. 

But  it  just  happens  that  when  Connie  is 
at  the  dentist's,  she  is  never  bothered  by 
studio  or  telephone  calls.  After  her  pesky 
wisdom  tooth  is  treated,  Connie  sits  in  the 
reception  room,  snatching  a  few  moments  of 
rest  by  looking  through  the  magazines  and 
enjoying  an  uninterrupted  moment  or  two. 
Connie  says  she  will  almost  be  sorry  when 
her  tooth  is  well. 


DOUGLAS  FAIRBANKS,  Jr.,  gave  Joan 
Crawford  a  beautiful  diamond  pin  for 
a  birthday  present.  It  is  a  very  gorgeous 
affair  and  Joan  is  crazy  about  it — but  it  is  a 
lot  of  worry.  She's  always  putting  it  down 
somewhere  and  forgetting  to  pick  it  up 
again. 

The  other  day  she  left  it  on  top  of  her 
make-up  kit  while  she  stepped  before  the 
cameras  to  do  a  scene.  When  she  came  back, 
the  pin  wasn't  there.  Joan  was  nearly 
frantic.  All  work  was  knocked  off  while  the 
company  searched. 

Finally  it  was  discovered  that  the  pin  had 
been  returned  to  the  "prop"  department. 
One  of  the  boys  on  the  set  had  been  in- 
structed to  return  all  the  "fake"  jewelry  on 
the  set  to  the  studio  wardrobe  department. 
He  had  mistaken  Joan's  real  pin  for  one  she 
had  been  using  in  the  picture. 

Yes,  they  found  it — and  now  Joan  is  very, 
very  careful. 


THE  big  social  event  of  the  month  was 
not  the  biggest  party,  or  even  the  most 
be-lighted  "first  night."  Xo,  it  seems  that 
Aimee  Semple  McPherson  Hutton  and 
Walter  Huston  staged  a  debate  in  Aimee's 
temple  on  the  subject  of  prohibition —  4  '•nee 
taking  the  pro  side  and  Walter  Uil  con. 
Question:  "Is  Prohibition  A  Success?" 

Almost  all  the  stars  from  the  M-G-M  lot 
turned  out  in  a  body.  Some  evil-minded 
newspaper  men  thought  the  debate  was  a 
publicity  gag  in  conjunction  with  the  current 
"Wet  Parade" — but  publicity  gag,  or  not, 
the  event  attracted  a  stunning  crowd. 

Clark  Gable  and  Bob  Montgomery  and 
Wally  Beery  seemed  to  be  having  the  time  of 
their  lives.  The  audience  voted  dry.  Which 
proves,  say  some,  that  the  persuasive  Aimee 
ought  to  be  in  the  movies.
